Camp Nou outfit, Barcelona, haven’t been very lucky in their dealings in the transfer market of recent, and the transfer ban they suffered seems to have made them forget how to make the right signings all of a sudden.
Despite boasting of one of the best starting lineups in the world, Barcelona’s bench doesn’t have quality players able to step up and perform well whenever injury or fatigue strikes Luis Enrique’s choice starters.
As 2016-17 draws to an end, preparing for the next season begins now, and the summer transfer window would present Barcelona the opportunity to strengthen their squad.
While at it, letting go of a couple of players is pertinent in order to bring in others, and here are 3 players Barcelona should sell in the summer transfer window to make them more formidable in squad depth.
In all honesty, the Brazilian can’t be considered surplus to requirements at Camp Nou, but he won’t be breaking into the starting XI anytime soon, and it’s why offers for him must be accepted come summer.
Like his brother, he has always shown promises, but he needs to leave in order to go stake a claim on a starting shirt elsewhere if he is to make the grade as far as the Brazilian senior team is concerned.
At 23, a permanent spot on the bench should be far from being associated with Rafinha, and both club and player are definitely stuck in between the devil and the deep blue sea. Like Thiago, he has the chances of establishing himself elsewhere, but his growth continues to stunt at Barcelona.
He won’t be getting anywhere near one of the 3 midfield berths available in the starting XI soon, and neither is he even the first substitute off the bench in games.
Sanctioning his sales would be a way to go.
