Barcelona have already offloaded a few players this summer but reportedly want at least three more departures before the close of the transfer window.

Mundo Deportivo report there are quite a few players who the club would be willing to wave goodbye to this week in order to reduce the wage bill further.

Jean-Clair Todibo, Rafinha, Samuel Umtiti and Martin Braithwaite are all potential candidates but not all of the quartet are attracting interest.

Umtiti’s injury problems have been well-documented and make a sale difficult, while Braithwaite only arrived in February and has made it clear he does not want to leave.

Rafinha is in the final year of his contract and could go, but his asking price could be a problem. Reports elsewhere have suggested Barca want €16 million.

The most likely player to leave looks like being Todibo. The 20-year-old has been linked with clubs in England and France and could bring in around €20m if he’s sold.

MD also talk about Riqui Puig and Carles Alena. Ronald Koeman’s already said he would prefer Puig to go out on loan but would also not be against Alena leaving on a temporary deal.
