Barça's first screening, when falling: 7 players will not continue

The exits of some of the footballers of the first team have already been decided, they will enter into transfer operations, barter or they will be given the freedom letter directly.


The first decisions after the humiliating elimination in the Champions League will be executed in the coming days. One of the first steps, whether elections are called for now or later, will be to advance the list of casualties, since the market cannot wait. The sports department has a list of seven players who will not follow next season. One of them, Arthur Melo, has already closed his transfer to Juventus, after a barter with the Bosnian Miralem Pjanic.

However, among the other six candidates, a more complicated solution seems to be the case. Croatian Ivan Rakitic will be next, with a possible departure to Seville, but without ruling out the Premier or Calcio. You will be looking for a quick solution because you want to close this case soon to open the following ones.

The Danish Braithwaite will also leave the club after a discreet stint at Barcelona, both in terms of time and performance. The Chilean Arturo Vidal has a good poster, both in the Premier and in Calcio, so he is considered a firm candidate to enter into some barter, while Junior Firpo would also be in the transfer package, in this case he could enter in the Lautaro Martínez operation with Inter.

The case of Samuel Umtiti seems more complicated, a player evicted because of his problems with his left knee. The club is considering reaching an agreement with the player to terminate the contract if no offer arrives and saving in this way is part of the record: he charges 12 million euros gross per year.

Another problematic case is Ousmane Dembélé. His history of injuries and erratic behavior within the group have been decisive for the sports management to value his departure, as long as an offer comes with face and eyes. It is expected with the money from the French forward to be able to face operations such as the transfer of Manchester City center-back, Eric García, valued at 24 million euros.

Five other proper names are on the table, although they will not enter the first sieve. They are Nelson Semedo, Luis Suárez, Neto, Sergi Roberto and Antoine Griezmann. If interesting offers come, negotiations could be opened, but they are not considered priorities in any case. Especially delicate is the issue of the Uruguayan striker because the club has decided not to extend his contract and could seek a transfer this summer, taking advantage of his pull in the US and Qatar.

Not even Gerard Piqué, Sergio Busquets or Jordi Alba are ruled out, although in principle at the club they are not considered as short-term options. Of the three, the left-back is the one who would have the most open doors for an exit, if an interesting offer arrives.Likewise, three players from the subsidiary will have a first-team record next season: Ansu Fati, Riqui Puig and Roland Araujo. In addition, Pjanic will be incorporated, along with the Portuguese Trincao and the Canarian Pedri. New sap as Piqué claimed after the defeat against Bayern.

In fact, today only four players have the non-transferable poster: Ter Stegen, Lenglet, De Jong and Messi.
