The Spanish club must part with -at least- seven footballers to comply with the chip limit and the salary cap imposed by LaLiga.
Barcelona is one of the clubs that is moving the most in the current transfer market: fastened the incorporations of Eric García, Sergio Agüero, Emerson and Memphis Depay. However, almost two weeks after returning to training, up to seven players will need to be released to significantly reduce the 32-player roster you currently have.
LaLiga establishes a chip limit (25 players) and a salary limit. Regarding the latter, clubs are advised that salaries do not exceed 70% of their income. However, Joan Laporta -president of Barcelona- expressed that the salaries of the Blaugrana footballers currently register 110%, so they can hardly achieve that ideal.
The players who could leave Barcelona:
The closest to leaving the club is Jean-Clair Todibo, a 21-year-old French defender who last season was on loan at the Nice. It is their own Ligue 1 team who expressed their desire to execute the clause of 8.5 million euros.
Carles Aleñá Y Moussa Wagué are other footballers who were on loan the last tournament and who they would not be taken into account by Koeman either. However, the Senegalese’s case is a bit more complicated because he returned from loan early, due to a serious knee injury.
On the other hand, Barça welcomes the way of exchanges with other clubs. In the last time the Manchester City’s interest in Sergi Roberto and Ousmane Dembélé to make a possible barter. The Culé team is interested in Joao Cancelo, Bernardo Silva, Riyad Marhez and Aymeric Laporte. However, this would be complicated after the injury of the French striker in the European Championship (he will be out until November).
In addition, the Inter de Milan intends to be reinforced with Jordi Alba and closely follow four players from the last Serie A champion: Alessandro Bastoni, Lautaro Martínez, Marcelo Brozovic and Milan Skriniar.
Finally, the one sacrificed up front would be the Dane Martin Braithwaite, who is currently contesting the Eurocup. However, there are still no concrete offers from other clubs.
