The economic situation at FC Barcelona means that the club will have to undertake a number of drastic measures to ensure it remains competitive in the upcoming years. One of the solutions identified to escape this quagmire is the sale of one of three forwards.

The club is planning on how to cut down their wage bill and inject cash into their coffers for the next season. SPORT reports that one of the main considerations in this regard is to sell one of either Ansu Fati, Raphinha, or Ferran Torres.

Laporta has clearly shown his intent to sell one of the players with fewer minutes on the pitch, in order to not drastically impact the rhythm of the team, which makes Fati and Torres the most at risk of being sold.

Ansu Fati, despite faltering in the last few seasons, still retains interest and value. A number of teams have shown an interest in taking on the youngster, with Manchester United being touted as one of the most keen.

However, it needs to be kept in mind that the youngster has not been a starter for the entire season, and there have been visible tensions between the player’s entourage and the club. Fati himself wants to succeed at the club, but Barcelona would entertain high-value offers and nothing is ruled out for now.

On the other hand, FC Barcelona invested a significant amount of money, €55 million, in Ferran Torres, and are skeptical that this amount can be recuperated with the winger’s current form. He himself also wants to stay at the club and has shown intensity and intent in training, but with teams like Atletico and Inter being interested in him, the club can consider a sale for him if a suitable offer comes in.

Raphinha has been more successful than these other two wingers, as he has taken over the injured Dembele since his injury. However, Barcelona know that he is still valued by Premier League clubs like Chelsea, and would be more than happy if they can recover the amount invested in him by the club.
