Pondering over how FC Barcelona should look in 2022/23 after UEL exit.



After another disappointing exit from an European competition, Xavi and his troops will end this season without any glory. Although Xavi has done a magnificent job after coming in, he now needs a good squad with great depth if he wants to challenge for European glory next season or at least make it far in the competition. lets look at the in's and out's Laporta, don Alemany and Jordi Cruyff should consider.

Out's :
Coutinho: currently performing well at the villa park should get decent money out of for him with many PL clubs interested. approximately 40 million euros
Griezmann: back at Wanda metropolitano for a loan of 2 years with 10million euros to be paid after the first season and 40million euro obligation if he plays 50% of the matches. approximately 50 million euros.
Trincao: Barca should do everything to sell him off. Reports claims he's interested in going back to Portugal. OR he could be swapped for Adama Traore if incase Dembele doesn't renew or if the transfer of Raphinha or Antony basically a RW doesn't fall through. worst case we'd have him back and Adama back to wolves. 20-30 million euros if he's sold or 6.5million euros if wolves don't buy him
Pjanic: A very difficult case. Barca should sell him for any price now to get his massive salary off of the balance books another loan looks likely to another club inter Milan are interested. approx. 5 million euros
Depay: Barcelona's highest goals scored by a player in laliga his bright start to life has now seen a steep downhill road now that a new manager's at the helm. He's done great and barca could get decent money for him PL and Serie A clubs interested. 45million euros
Braithwaite: No place for him right now with new signings even got out of the squad once when everyone was fit many mid table PL teams interested. approx. 10 million euros
Umtiti: Extended his contract and reduced his salary to go out on loan to get playing time. approx. 5 million euros
Puig: His time in Barcelona is probably up according to reports he's now looking for new pastures hoping for the best for him. approx. 10 million euros
Neto: The Brazilian shot stopper is looking for regular game time which he might not get at barca. approx. 3 million euros
Lenglet: it wont be easy but the Frenchman will be offloaded in the summer the latest game against Frankfurt made it obvious that Xavi doesn't trust him will probably fetch a fee of about 10 million

In's
Pena:
on loan at Galatasaray has looked very good in the games he's played in and will be on his way in to be MATS backup as Neto will probably leave FREE
Christensen: has received the here we go from Fabrizio Romano the ucl winner will be the latest edition at the back will come for FREE
Kessie has also received the here we go from the Italian journalist the AC Milan man will come in for FREE
Mazraoui A difficult transfer to pull through as recent reports suggests he's close to joining Bayern alongside Ryan gravenberch. Dani Alves will play one last season before he leaves so i believe having 3 RB in the team is nothing to worry about as we've seen that injuries are a major problems and since Alves will be 39 in the next season its not a bad idea to restrict him to play only in the domestic competitions so Barcelona should do everything to get the Moroccan as he also will be FREE this summer
grimaldo/ gaya/ Galan/ Tagliafico/ Alonso: Barca definitely need an able backup to alba as he's on the wrong side of his thirties. barca is looking to pay a maximum of 20-25 million euro. preferred option is Jose Gaya from Valencia
Lewandowski/ Halaand: it is clear barca need a number 9 this summer Halaand as rumors' suggest is getting farther and farther away from barca so barca should work on Lewandowski. My preferred option is Lewandowski. sure he may be old but he still have at least 3 years of top level football left in him because he was never the fastest player and his positioning and link up play is exactly what barca want from a number 9. which was evident when Frankfurt contained pedri and Gavi, auba couldn't exactly link up. approximately gonna cost 60 million

Raphinha/ Antony: barca need a RW to backup Dembele or if he leaves which as identified are Raphinha or Antony both Brazilian are good taking into account that Leeds don't get relegated barca would have to pay 50 million for either of them

Out of all the scenarios the perfect one would be to renew Dembele, sell Trincao buy Raphinha/ Antony and promote Jutgla, Abde and Fabio/ Collado and if all of the above mentioned happens barca will be a serious candidate under Xavi.

A total balance of = +210 -110 = +100 million euros

Let me know in the comments below what do u think and if I've missed anything would appreciate it. Can't wait for next years La Xavineta. VISCA EL BARCA
