We analyze the situation of the different footballers to whom FC Barcelona has put the "for sale" poster for the 2022 winter market and their possible destinations far from Barcelona.
The "sell for fichar" sounds background for the FC Barcelona at all times. The Barcelona are conscious that it will be key to give exit to a few players during the market of wintry signings (or in summer) to be able to lighten the mass salarial and, in definite, have 'fair play' to be able to confront the registrations of the players that can arrive to the Camp Nou. It treats of a true challenge, put in January is very difficult 'undo' of the 'descartes' of the team.
However, from the Barcelona offices andstán forced to put 101% of effort to achieve an exhaustive cleaning in the changing room. They have to be a few so that, for example, the Barça can concretise the traspaso of Ferran Torres from the Manchester City. The director of football, Mateu Alemany, confirmed it does some days: "there are a lot of duties, but immediately do 'fair play', it is necessary to do exits before they go in. Have very clear the players that want, but before have to fulfil with the 'fair-play' financial".
In this stage remains to ask: the Barça will announce to Ferran Torres before freeing mass salarial? Can 'truncate' his traspaso if there are not exits? They are many the interrogantes, but for the moment in the club recognise that there are problems of 'fair play', a truth that sometimes 'hide' between so many rumours of signings, but that it is the reality and forces to the culés to 'undo' of too many footballers in January.
Only it will remain to see if they are able to do it, but the situation paints to be complicated. In any case, from 'SPORT' have desvelado the list of nine players that could abandon the City Condal: Sergiño Dest, Luuk of Jong, Clément Lenglet, Samuel Umtiti, Philippe Coutinho, Yusuf Demir, Òscar Mingueza, Net or Iñaki Crag. To continuation, review his situations:
The international of United States at the beginning of 2021 appeared like one of the 'jewels' of the Barça of Koeman, but has sinned of irregularity. His performance has remained questioned and Xavi Hernández does not take it in account between his plans. It has not felt comfortable in the right side, but neither like extreme... And that is a big problem. In any case, his dream is to follow dressing of Barcelona and would not have intention to leave .
They are varied the clubs that have showed interest, but the Bayern of Munich and Chelsea head the list, especially a group 'blue' that would be had to put on the table until 35 million euros to do with the services of Sergiño Dest. It is necessary to remember, besides, that his traspaso from the Ajax in 2020 supposed an outlay of around 26 'kilos' (21+5 in variables). In this season, still remained for amortising 16 millions.
Luuk Of Jong
The Dutch arrived to the City Condal in quality of loan from the Seville in the limit of the market of wintry signings. It has not surrendered neither it has fulfilled the expectations, and go that they were few to his arrival... It was a request of Ronald Koeman, but neither with him neither much less with Xavi Hernández has been important. It is an exit 'compulsory' although his index card the pay the Andalusian group.
The problem is that the Seville no tienel to intention to receive to Luuk of Jong in January, by what the Barça has to achieve him a destination in brief. It had sounded the Inter of Milan (with the exchange of Alexis Sánchez) but remained descartado. Now, the Juventus would be interested or clubs in Turkey.
With the international with France there are doubts, but if the Barça can 'undo' of him in January, will do it. Lenglet Has been used by Xavi in some parties and has fulfilled. It is less 'fallón' that in the past season, but antoja like an exit that the Barça wanted to effect. However, the player has left clear that is very comfortable in the Camp Nou and does not have intentions to leave .
In England have showed interest in him, but have not arrived offers in concrete. The Tottenham of Antonio Conte is one of the clubs that would be following his situation, but for the moment there is not at all serious. Xavi, as 'SPORT', would prefer that it went out Umtiti before that he, place considers that it can be an important joker for the Barça.
In the case of Umtiti, the Barça 'exasperate'. Only it has played a party (against the Real Betis) in all the season and is not a footballer that, precisely, enamore to Xavi Hernández or the sportive direction. To this, it is necessary to add him that it is one of which more earns in the staff. In summer the Barcelona looked for his exit, but finished remaining in spite of being conscious that his opportunities to play went to be minimum.
It does months there was not team that wanted to do with his services and now neither. In his moment, sand commented that the Olympique of Lyon would be had in doing him a space in his staff... But everything remained there. In any case, Umtiti would have to do a 'sacrifice' and go down his index card, of some 16 gross millions, to find an exit.
The history of never can. The Barça carries long treating to sell to Philippe Coutinho without effectiveness. It begins to be a quebradero of head for the directors, that trusted that this himself went to be the season in which the Brazilian went to 'despegar' as culé. Error. You grieve and it participates in the game and, when it does it, the contribution is minimum. It is, besides, the player that more earns in the staff, ingresando around 24 'kilos' by season.
The problem is to find a team that can pay his index card and that was interested in him. Explaining this season, toún remain 40 millions for amortising and is something that the Barça has to take in account to avoid losses. The Arsenal or Everton have sounded like possible destinations, but remains to expect if they can 'keep' his index card or pay his traspaso.
The Barcelona communicated to the Austrian footballer that had to look for a new team. It is yielded in the Barcelona picture to the end of season, but the Barça will break the loan in January. They do not want to pay the option of purchase of 10 million euros that would do effective if the great footballer 10 parties and right now adds nine.
Everything seems to indicate to that will leave to the German football. The Borussia Dortmund, Eintracht and Bayer Leverkusen are some of the teams that carry some time following him. In this sense, the rights of the player will go back to be to the one hundred by one hundred of the Rapid of Vienna and the Barça will free a square in the changing room.
The canterano has remained 'signalled' in this season, although during the past course served of 'turns off fires' for the Barça. The main reason of his 'bajón' has been that has not played in his natural position, that is the one of head office. In front of the drops of Sergi Roberto or Sergiño Dest, has split from the right side, where has starred a few 'humiliations' that have not happened unobserved for Xavi and company. It has played, also, by the left and has been even worse.
The picture culé, as 'SPORT' does not see him like an imminent exit, but yes like an option in case that other defenders, like Lenglet or Umtiti, decide not going out. Some clubs would have asked after a possibility of cession, although it has not concretised at all.
The guardameta Brazilian wants to leave the Camp Nou. It knows that, although Marc-André ter Stegen is in a moment very negative, lives under his shadow. In the Barça is unlikely that Net have opportunities and thus would be looking for an exit of face to the winter. Explaining this course, remains still pending an amortización of 17,5 million euros.
There are not a lot of clubs interested in his traspaso. In fact, for the moment there has not been an approach in Europe, but yes from Brazil. Only it remains to see in the conditions in which it could leave so that they exist plusvalías, something that for the moment antoja like impossible for the Barça.
Finally, it is Iñaki Crag. It does not have index card of the first team, but is in practically in all the announcements of the picture directed by Xavi. The Barça does not have he and would look for to free in the wintry market. Teams of LaLiga Santander and SmartBank are attentive to his situation and could ask after a cession próximamente.
