According to El Periodicio, Barcelona are open to selling eight of their first team players this summer. The Bluagrana giants were forced to make this substantial over haul after they ended the season in tatters.
Barcelona didn’t only finish this season trophy-less but they were drubbed 8-2 in the Champions League by a rampart Bayern Munich team in the quarter final of the Champions League.
The incoming manager Ronald Koeman has now revealed eight players who should be looking for another club this summer.
Luis Suarez– The mercurial striker has outlived his usefulness at Barcelona and now needs to leave. Suarez is without doubt one of Barcelona’s best strikers in history but, its time he moves on.
Ivan Rakitic- According to Cadena Sar, Rakitic will certainly be leaving Barcelona this summer. The 32-year-old Croatian international is currently deemed surplus to requirement and free to join any club of his choice.
Arturo Vidal- The Chilean superstar is currently deemed surplus to requirement and free to leave the club this summer. Vidal is a world class midfielder who still have legs to run and strength to win back the ball.
He will likely be returning to the Seria A to join Inter Milan.
Samuel Umtiti- The French defender will be leaving Barcelona this summer. Umtiti is a good defender but over the years, he has struggled with form and fitness and seen his place taken by another talented french defender in Clement Lenglet.
Jordi Alba– The supremely talented left back will likely be leaving Barcelona this summer. Alba has done a massive job in replacing Dani Alves but it seems his time is up and its time he leaves the club.
Sergio Busquet– The ever green midfield enforcer is reportedly among the host of first team players expected to leave Barcelona this summer. Busquets still remains a world class defensive midfielder but, his lack of pace and energy was ruthlessly exposed by a powerful and rampant Bayern Munich.
Nelson Semedo- The Portuguese international will certainly be leaving Barcelona this summer. Semedo will likely be joining AS Roma or Real Sociedad.
Junior Firpo– The versatile fullback will leave Barcelona this summer. He might be returning to Real Betis or, leaving the club on loan.
