Barcelona seemed no longer able to maintain expensive squad they possess at this time. There has been much information in Spain said the pandemic Covid-19 makes no revenues become a burden too great for Barca, because they own the team and the coaching staff the highest salaried La Liga.
Antoine Griezmann, the star in the list of most expensive sale was Barca
Recent newspaper Mundo Deportivo in Barcelona said Barca will sell 8 Players in Figure 1 to cut wages, and this sheet to emphasize here is the case remains to be registered to play in La Liga this season, not to those who have almost been discarded though still on the payroll (as Jean-Clair Todibo). Among the players were sold there every style, from old star has weakened, so children do not meet expectations and even new top superstar rock is less than 1 year.
Leading the list is Antoine Griezmann, a contract worth 89 million pounds from Atletico Madrid last summer did not fit in with the Barca game and now also at age 29, age is no longer low enough to the resale value high. The Griezmann could go no new by the media earlier said the leaders Barca see Griezmann was a mistake and want to sell immediately to remove the gauze bit of money instead so long as Philippe Coutinho case.
But surprisingly Coutinho was not in the list, the Brazilian has now fallen into a "do not sell" because wages are too high and the cost of acquisition is huge so no club wants to pay expensive and Barca are not be sold cheap. Coach Quique Setien least recently said he wants to use, he will temporarily Coutinho place at Barca.
Ousmane Dembele spend too much money but bring little success for Barca
Back to the list of eight players, two other offensive players will also be sold as Griezmann is Ousmane Dembele and Luis Suarez. Dembele is a complete failure with Barca coaching staff because of poor discipline and constant injuries. Suarez is the spirit of the club should work for him just to reduce wages, Suarez can select the next destination to expectations and Barca will meet.
5 remaining players Arturo Vidal, Ivan Rakitic, Samuel Umtiti, Nelson Semedo and Sergi Roberto. Vidal, in the form of veteran Rakitic has weakened, Umtiti totally lost form since knee surgery Semedo and Roberto are also unsatisfactory in the position right fullbacks. 5 are in the form of players no longer qualify to kick for Barca but still many interested clubs.
Sources said in the clubs interested in the player has plenty of Premier League team and they mainly want Griezmann, Vidal, Dembele and Semedo. Everton have business relationships with Barca and their recent seasons seem to own Semedo and Dembele, while Newcastle will pay attention to Griezmann and Vidal if the takeover is approved from Saudi Arabia.
