El FC Barcelona comenzará la pretemporada 2022 el próximo lunes 4 de julio. Antes de la vuelta oficial al trabajo, Xavi Hernández ha desconvocado a tres jugadores de la plantilla para la primera semana de entrenamientos, dando margen para su salida
Xavi Hernández wants to define the staff of the 2022-23 the before possible. As it confirmed 'Sportive World', to few days of the beginning of the pre-season of the FC Barcelona, the technician egarense has communicated to Samuel Umtiti, Óscar Mingueza and Riqui Puig that they will not have to add to the trainings next Monday 4 July, giving them a week more than holidays so that resulevan his exit of the club. If his situation does not resolve in the shortness, is possible that these three players neither travel to turns it in the United States.
In this sense, Xavi does not want to feed false hopes with the descartes fixed. The directive already has left clear that the mission is to debug the staff and go down mass salarial, by what if some player tries to block his exit will finish receiving his letter of freedom. Thus, the three first desconvocados already have received the first called of attention and are forced to find team what before.
Umtiti Is in negotiations with the Fiorentina and the Barça expects to close his cession this same week. Nevertheless, the wage of the French has complicated the negotiations, since the violet group is not had to pay the 4 million net euros that invoices the central. At most, the Italians would do charge of the half of the index card of the Frenchman, an option that does not convince to the managerial culé.
By his part, Mingueza has sounded like possible reinforcement for the Celtic, the Elche and the Getafe, but up to now there is not any formal offer by his traspaso. The one of Santa Perpetua of Moguda has agreement until June of 2023 and could go out by a mount near to the 5 million euros. Finally, Riqui Puig has options to leave to the Lazio, club that looks for an offensive midfield player. Valencia also has asked after the canterano, although it would prioritise a loan.
Braithwaite Will run the same luck
Another of the 'sentenced' of Xavi is Martin Braithwaite. The Danish, to the equal that the rest of international of the Barça, will add to the pre-season on 11 July, but is very likely that the technician egarense apply the same strategy that with Riqui Puig, Mingueza and Umtiti with the forward, by the one who neither there are offers up to now. The '12' is the one who has it more complicated to go out, since practically it did not play in the 2021-22.
