Barcelona reportedly want to sell €150m worth of players this summer. The Barcelona higher ups want to make back some of the cash they’ve spent on Frenkie de Jong and Antoine Griezmann. The main players they’re targeting to make up the majority of the cash are Philippe Coutinho, Rafinha Alcantara, and Malcom.

There are of course other players that might make the exit. The likes of Ivan Rakitic, Samuel Umtiti and Arturo Vidal could be on the move if Barcelona get desperate enough. At this point, Rakitic moving has been bubbling for so long it feels like it isn’t going to happen. With De Jong being the only key midfielder acquisition this summer, getting rid of Rakitic would seem a bit short sighted.

Whatever the case, Barcelona have only sold about €80m worth of players this off season, and they need to make up more before the season starts.
