"Claro that there are players intocables. They are in my head. I have it clear. From here, it is necessary to see which is the situation and the capacity of manoeuvre", said Xavi Hernández in press conference regarding the players that will not move in this ventada of transfers estival in which the FC Barcelona will look for to complete an important number of incorporations so that his staff was the most competitive possible and recover, finally, the 'capacity' to win titles after a season in white (the second in the last three years).

Before buying and fichar, it is necessary to sell. They know it very well in the offices of the Camp Nou put the economic situation of the club is, as little, delicate. There is not margin to make big operations if it does not free of exceptional way the changing room and, with this, the mass salarial. In summary, the Barça needs to give exit to a lot of players of the current staff to configure the one of the next season, with the fortune that there is a base with which build the project.

In this sense, Xavi Hernández has very clear-cut who are the players that will be the base of the Barça 2022-2023. They are varied the players that have the poster of intocables or untransferable and that, probably, will be the leaders of the Barcelona picture to average and long term. In the dispatches of the club know it and the trainer egarense has they... Who are? The more youngsters, that carry this season (and the past) shining appear like the big players that from the City Condal see insustituibles, but there is more.

The names dand Ansu Fati, Pedri González, Ronald Araújo, Eric García, Gavi and Ferran Torres are of first in the list of players that the Barça wants to take care so that they build the Barça of the future. The club has commissioned to do it know and Xavi Hernández has manifested in a sinfín of opportunities that explains (and trusts) fully in them. All, to exception of Gavi (slope to renew) and Eric, have a clause of exit of billion of euros.

In the case of the central Catalan, that arrived pertinent of the Manchester City the past summer, has a clause of 400 'kilos', whereas the midfield player sevillano will join to the rest of his mates when it extend his agreement. To his 17 years, already has achieved to be a key footballer for the blaugrana and are expecting to achieve exits so that it concretise his renewal and 'promotion' definite to the first team. Still it has dorsal of the inferior categories.

Likewise, for Xavi Hernández the captains keep on being keys and, at least of face to the season 2022-2023, will keep on being intocables for him. Gerard Hammered, Jordi Alba and Sergio Busquets have showed that, in spite of his age, are players that 'push' to the Barça and that help to the youngest. In a different situation is Sergi Roberto, the one who will renew his agreement in brief, but is not an essential player for the trainer of Terrassa.

And the untransferable?

In this section, there are nuances. The Barça has players that will put in the market and by which presionará so that they do his cases and abandon the team this summer and others that would leave in case that it arrive an important offer and that it was 'attractive' for the directive. Footballers that have the confidence of Xavi Hernández, but that they would be keys to help to improve the accounts of the club and 'contribute' like this to welcome the new reinforcements.

Like this then , these players are Frenkie of Jong, Memphis Depay, Sergiño Dest, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang or Nico González (has spoken of a cession). In the case of the Dutch midfield player, seems that it is the one who more 'directed' is in leaving of the club. They are varied the teams that are interested in his traspaso and the Barça would ask by him between 70 and 80 million euros. The rest, is in "will see" to fault that they arrive offers.

In a different position are players like Net Walled, Òscar Mingueza, Samuel Umtiti, Clément Lenglet, Wagué, Martin Braithwaite or Riqui Puig, to those who will look for him an exit as soon as possible. They do not go in in the plans of Xavi Hernández and have turned into 'fixed' of the bench blaugrana, by what will have to abandon the Camp Nou in the next months.

Players in the air

On the other hand, there is blaugrana whose future is in the air. Ousmane Dembélé And Dani Alves have agreement until 30 June of this year and anybody knows if they will follow or no. With the French the situation is delicate and seems not having advances regarding his new agreement, put from his surroundings follow resisting to the figures that have presented from the Barça, that are inferior to which they ask. The player would want to be still in the club. With Dani Alves, on the other hand, from the offices of the Camp Nou have not offered him an extension.

Likewise, they are the players that will return of his respective cessions in this summer. Àlex Hill will return of the Granada and expects that it will do the pre-season with the first team, Iñaki Crag culminates his cession with the Galatasaray and everything aims to that it will be the second guardameta culé, whereas Miralem Pjanic (Besiktas) and Francisco Trincãor (Wolverhampton) will return to the Camp Nou, but is unlikely that remain to the pre-season.
