On August 16, Barca President Joan Laporta explained the debt amount of up to 1.35 billion euros. Facing difficult financial situations, the team is considering selling some players to solve this situation.
Since moving to Barca from Liverpool for up to 145 million pounds, Coutinho has not shown much. In 2019, Barca also let the Brazilian player join Bayern on loan. However, the defending Bundesliga champion did not see his importance in the team, so he let him return to the host club.
Coutinho’s £200,000/week salary makes the team’s finances difficult. From that time until now, there have been many times Barca sold him for a much cheaper price than what they had to spend to get him.
Coutinho’s future at the Nou Camp seems more uncertain when he did not fill in the registration list to play in the recent Sociedad match. His shirt number 14 was also given to youngster Rey Manaj.

What fans remember most about Dembele while at Barca is the injury cases. He is suffering from a knee injury from Euro 2020. In addition, this player’s attitude and discipline makes Barca want to push him to another team.
The player who has spent £ 100 million on Barca’s transfer has only 1 year left on his contract. The current injury of the French player makes it difficult for the Nou Camp team to sell him this summer.
Another player with a high transfer value when Barca brought him in for £108 million. Although Griezmann’s performances are not too bad, he is consuming £ 294,000 a week in the team’s salary fund.
Currently there are many teams linked with this player such as Juventus, Man City, Chelsea and even his former team, Atletico Madrid. President Laporta also spoke about his case: “We all like Griezmann very much. But the team is facing many financial problems. We were forced to find a way to balance it out by letting some players go. We will speak directly to the player so that no one is hurt, or if so, only for a short time.”

Griezmann’s unpredictable future
Pjanic came to Barca for 60 million euros, with a bonus of 5 million and a contract release clause of up to 400 million euros. However, he was one of the most disappointing names last season. The 31-year-old player has only made 6 appearances in La Liga 2020/21 and played a full 90 minutes in a single match.
The 31-year-old receives £115.00 a week and has three years left on his contract with Barca. With the age and salary above, it is difficult for Barca to push him away in a short time.
Although there was a time when MU and Arsenal were interested in Umtiti, but both teams were never really serious about this deal. Only 49 appearances in three years, Umtiti also has a long-term injury history and earns a salary of up to 131,000 pounds/year.
Difficult for Barca when the French player is making moves that do not want to leave the team and has 3 years left on his contract. The BLD team is considering a plan to terminate the 27-year-old player’s contract.
Umtiti doesn’t want to leave
Having achieved impressive performance when he joined from Sevilla for £ 32 million, Lenglet has been on the decline in recent times. With the presence of Eric Garcia from Man City or the maturity of Oscar Mingueza, the French midfielder’s opportunity to stay at Barca is increasingly narrow.
