Sales galore at FC Barcelona?


By: Manu Tournoux

To replenish its coffers, FC Barcelona is preparing to part with numerous players by next summer. No less than seven elements should go.

Between a debt far from being absorbed and a more than substantial payroll, the financial balance of FC Barcelona remains worrying to say the least. If the Catalan club has tried to limit the damage by taking out numerous loans, it is seeking by all means to reduce this debt. One of them relates to the potential sales of several players currently on loan. Enough to recover a small jackpot estimated by some at around 85 million euros.

It is A.S. who was responsible for doing the accounts this Saturday. The Spanish media took a look at all the players loaned this season by Barça. And luckily for the club, the majority of the elements concerned are successful. First there is the Moroccan defender, Chadi Riad, who is making his mark at Betis and who could bring in six million euros. Ansu Fati is well established on the Brighton side and that Barcelona would be ready to give up (€30 million?).

Lenglet, only disappointment

Concerning defender Eric Garcia, it is still a good potential operation for Barça since the player excels with the surprising second in La Liga, Girona. Same thing for Pablo Torre. As for Sergiño Dest, the purchase option could be exercised by PSV Eindhoven. In Las Palmas, it is Julian Araujo who is also convincing. Finally, the seventh potential sale should be the most complicated since it concerns Clément Lenglet who has failed to dig his hole at Aston Villa. For now.
