Who are the 5 Players Barcelona must sell transfer window?
5 Players Barcelona must sell? There are 5 Players leaving Barcelona probably at the least. Who are they?
Do you have any say on who you think the 5 Players leaving Barcelona should be?
A lot has been made of Barcelona not signing the correct players this summer. The big miss was Neymar. However, there squad is stacked.
Barca compensated for it by signing Antoine Griezmann. The French forward was a record move for Atletico Madrid. They also signed a big player in Frenkie De Jong. He came from Ajax. It has certainly strengthened Valverde’s team for this season.
However, Barca have an uneven squad. They are also overaged and it must be fixed. Or at least looked at.
While it can be accepted, that Barca squad is high on quality, there is a much bigger problem to solve, the size of the squad.
Who are the 5 Players leaving Barcelona next transfer window?
Here are five players who do not add anything to the club and Barcelona must sell:
1. Ousmanne Dembele
The former Borussia Dortmund man is now a failed signing at Barcelona. He arrived as a replacement for Neymar after Barcelona paid for a fortune for him.
However, the move never really took off. He was late for training, late for matches, and not doing anything well.
He has run into problems multiple times with coaches, team mates and fans. However, his attitude seems unlikely to change.
Dembele was bought for no less than 150 million pounds. They were forced into paying that much even though he was a teenager then. The reason for this because the Catalan club had just sold Neymar for a world record fee of over 200 million pounds.
Hence, the club’s status was known to everybody. Wherever, they went, they were charged a bomb of a price. At Barcelona, they were desperate for a winger then and Dembele was the only available in the market.
It ended with Barcelona paying 150 million pounds for the French teenager.
However, it now seems like money down the drain and the Catalan club must get rid of him to make way for new signings.
2. Luis Suarez
He has been at Barcelona for over 7 years now. He was a world class forward and still is. Just that now his age is catching up with him. Even though he is still delivering in some matches, he has stopped playing at the highest level on a regular basis.
Before at Barcelona, he was at Liverpool. At Anfield he came close to a move to Arsenal but it did not work out and he joined Barcelona.
With Barcelona, he has made history. He has scored tons of goals for them and will go down in their books as one of the better number nines the club has seen and that is not a joke at Barca.
Suarez however, has slowed down in pace as well and Barca need to move him on and find a better player.
3. Ivan Rakitic
What a midfielder he is! However, he too like Suarez faces the challenge of being old. He has given it all since his move from Sevilla to the Nou Camp.
He is the midfield general while creating attacks ever since Xavi left and makes that transition happen from defence to attack. He has a knack of scoring stunners. Specially in big matches, he has scored big goals like the ones he scored against Real Madrid.
4. Sergio Busquets
Sergio Busqets is a Barcelona legend. For those who study the game, they all agree that he is a generational midfielder. He is not flashy like other players in the team. He is a player who likes to be at the right place at the right time.
He is technically very gifted. He is a tackler, interceptor, passer, creator and midfield tactical general.
He has been at Barcelona all his life. He was taken up to the first team by Pep Guardiola. However, age has caught up with him too and Barcelona now need to look into the second chapter, one after Busqets cause there is a massive hole to be filled. They have a midfield general in Frenkie de Jong.
5. Gerard Pique
He was at Manchester United initially. He then came back to Barcelona where he has done well as a leader at the back. He was Pep Guardiola’s main man while creating play from the back.
He was one of those modern day players who learned to play with the ball from the back and could charge forward. However, for this player, he is now old and age has caught up with him. Barcelona have new players in Umtiti and Lenglet and these guys will step up to the plate only if Pique leaves.
