FC Barcelona transfer news Roundup
According to a recent report by Mundo Deportivo, Barça remains heavily reliant on player sales to reduce the cost of the workforce. Ferran Torres has struggled with a lack of productivity since joining from Manchester City. Eric Garcia and Alonso have hardly gained regular minutes under Xavi. Frank Kessie on the other hand has had some good displays in the second half of the season. Unfortunately, he has not nailed down a starting position. With the possibility of Ilkay Gundogan coming in his situation will only get more difficult.
Although Raphinha has done well at the club since arriving, he is generating plenty of interest from England and could help generate a lot of income, with reports suggesting that Newcastle United is offering €80 million for him. However, the majority of these players have no intention of leaving the club, which could be a sticking point for Barça. The club will rely solely on the fact that they leave on their own accord after learning their lack of prominence in Xavi’s plans.
Barcelona’s efforts to reduce its salary mass and generate fresh income come as the club pursues Lionel Messi. The club has already sought out avenues to normalize its relationship with La Liga and meet its Financial Fair Play demands. However, it remains to be seen how the club will fare with player sales, especially if the majority of the players on the list have no intention of leaving the club.
