In an attempt to improve their financial status, Barcelona is reportedly keen to quickly finalize as many player exits as possible by June 30.
Due to the after-effects of the coronavirus pandemic, it is said that the Catalan giants have lost more than £ 100 m. This has seriously hampered their hopes of making new additions during the next transfer window.
The latest strategy, according to ESPN, is to unload some members of their squad instead. Barcelona expects many departures to improve their chances of signing for Lautaro Martinez and Miralem Pjanic.
Moreover, these sales should be finalized before June 30, the date on which Spain’s financial year reaches its end.
So far, Nelson Semedo, Junior Firpo, Jean-Clair Todibo, Ivan Rakitic and Arturo Vidal were tipped to exit the La Liga leaders in the coming months.
Club officials are also likely to prioritize the revenues they would cash in upon Philippe Coutinho and Ousmane Dembele’s selling. The pair have not received the same payments that have been paid in the past for their respective signatures.
