Barça are facing an ideal situation in terms of market planning. The Catalans have too much cover in the centre-back position and will be in a position to decide whether to strengthen the rest of the team with an exit from that part of the squad

Calendar of FC Barcelona

The FC Barcelona thinks in reinforcing the midfield and the line of attack this next summer, especially because like this it has requested it Xavi Hernández to give the 'OK' to his continuity in the club. And one of the roads to do it could be give exit to varied of the central that has in staff, especially to which will return of cession in brief, explaining also in this list to some canterano. To continuation review how is the stage of each one.

Pau Cubarsí

The central of 17 years seems the safest name of everything, so much by his big second half of season, as by the fact that the Barça finish to do official his renewal. The club has the central for the next 5, 8 or 10 years and right now is being an important name for the sportive planning, even being already a fixed of the XI of the next season, independently of who go to be his couple in the centre of the defence.

Ronald Araújo

The Uruguayan, although in principle it would have to be in a similar situation to the one of Cubarsí, the reality is that his big value of market and his complicated renewal, which would have to close before the closing of the following season, put him like a possibility of exit this summer. Bayern And Manchester United could offer between 70 and 90 millions by the charrúa, allowing so the Barça reinforce other positions.

Jules Koundé

For the French the situation yes that is resembled the one of Araújo, although with much less value of market and also margin to be an operation that leave net profits. Like side, Koundé has surrendered of positive way, but follows having a lot of limitations, by what could finish going out, clearing of course that his posture is the one to continue at all times.

Andreas Christensen

Like pivote, the Danish has been a big solution for the team, but the Barça pretends fichar to two players for this role, by what would remain with little space in the centre of the defence, especially if Araújo finally gave his word to renew. In this situation, the Danish could leave a very good profit for having arrived free in 2022.

Iñigo Martínez

Surely the name that more options has to go out was the one of Iñigo. Between the five defenders that there is right now in staff, the Basque is the one of more age and also the one who less leadership has had, adding besides that his agreement has to be again inscribed, by what the Barça could leave him go directly.

Eric García

This place of Iñigo could be occupied by Eric. The defender has fulfilled very well in the Girona, and although Míchel wanted to retain it, Xavi already has he and except that it arrive a too attractive offer, would have to return to continue in the Barça.

Clément Lenglet

The French will return of his cession in the Aston Villa without any type of options in the team, at least if Xavi follows his line of 2022 and 2023. The left-handed footballer is not of the like of the egarense and his high index card does it an unfeasible option to have a so secondary role like the one of fourth or fifth head office.

Mika Faye

The central Senegalese of the Barça Atlètic, that already has debuted with the absolute selection of his country with 19 years, is a name in which the Barça think that this summer will arrive proposals more important by him. For the moment it explains for the first team of face to the next season and like this has done it to him know already the club, but is in a position to expect news of the others players and of what so important was the interest by him.

Chadi Riad

The FC Barcelona could recover to the canterano this summer, although it is not clear if this possibility is alone for the 2025, and from there try sell him to the own Real Betis or to another club. Regarding continuity, the Moroccan has surely the lowest options, when having to compete with other better players positioned like Faye and Eric García.
