Barcelona know that they need to reinforce their squad, but first they need to let the players go. That is why they have started the exit operation to sell the remaining players they have.
Several players have already left the club and have left money in the club’s coffers. Barcelona expect to collect around 140 million euros for the player.
The first to officially pack his bags was Coutinho. Aston Villa executed the 20 million euros buyout clause to keep the Brazilian. . Ferran Jutgla also packed his bags, but to Brugge for five million euros.
Lenglet, meanwhile, has not left any money for his departure, as he has gone on loan to Tottenham. However, Barcelona will save part of the French player’s salary.
The next to leave will be Francisco Trincao. The Portuguese will leave for Sporting CP on loan, so he will not leave money this season. He will do so next season, with a compulsory buyout clause of 20 million euros.
Other players close to leaving the club are Memphis Depay and Frenkie de Jong. For the former, the Catalan club is asking 20 million euros; for the latter, 80 million euros, according to ‘Sport’.
Mingueza, a percentage of the sale of Todibo, Dest, Riqui Puig, Neto or Umtiti are other names that can leave some money in Barcelona’s coffers.
