Barcelona Set For Massive Summer Clearout


Spanish giants, Barcelona are reportedly set to oversee a huge squad overhaul following a disappointing campaign.

Despite winning the La Liga title, Ernersto Valverde’s side suffered Champions League and Copa del Rey heart breaks against Liverpool and Valencia respectively.

It has now been claimed that a total of 11 players have been deemed surplus to requirements.

Thomas Vermaelen, Jeison Murillo and Kevin-Prince Boateng are all out of contract at the Nou Camp this summer.

And Spanish daily Marca has listed eight other players, who will be sold by the club this summer, for the right price.
The ose out-of-favour players are: Jasper Cillessen, Nelson Semedo, Samuel Umtiti, Ivan Rakitic, Andre Gomes, Denis Suarez, Malcom and Philippe Coutinho.

Rakitic is wanted by Manchester United and while Valverde wants to keep hold of the Croatian, club chiefs are willing to part ways with the 2018 World Cup finalist.

Gomes and Suarez, who had Premier League loan spells at Everton and Arsenal respectively last season, are yet to have their long-term futures cleared up by the club.
