The updated list of “Untouchables” at FC Barcelona

This summer promises to be a busy one at FC Barcelona. Perhaps not as much as last year, when the restructuring of the squad led to an unusually high number of market operations, but it will still be challenging.

The open war with La Liga, with numerous episodes, may create a delicate situation with the salary cap of the new sports project. If it is true that Barcelona must reduce the current figure by €200 million, the club may be forced to sell players they would rather keep. The board has initiated a savings plan that will affect many areas and sections of the club, but the main focus will be on renegotiating some salaries and selling footballers to raise as much money as possible.

President Joan Laporta has always been clear that the club will try to offload sellable players who do not play many minutes, and it doesn’t take a genius to guess who they might be, although Barcelona are not sure if the money raised from these sales will be enough.

The sports management team has conducted a detailed market study of the entire squad. They already believe that a lot of money could be raised with some players if a moment of absolute desperation arises. However, there are three players, for various reasons, who will not be sold under any circumstances.

According to the recent reports from SPORT, These three untouchables are Araujo, Pedri, and, surprisingly, Frenkie De Jong, a footballer who was in the spotlight a few months ago but decided to stay, halting any operation. Meanwhile, the club has no intention of negotiating any deals for Ter Stegen, Gavi, or Balde (if he renews), or other players such as Koundé, Raphinha, or Lewandowski. These players have a lot left to offer and the club is not considering any transfer deals for them.

Additionally, Xavi Hernandez does not want to lose players like Christensen or Kessié, despite receiving offers for them. Mateu Alemany, the football director, will have to work towards reaching a consensus on decisions, while the club waits for La Liga to provide some breathing space.

Currently, there have been some decisions made, and it appears that there will be a revolution in the offensive positions as long as some of the designated players agree to depart. The biggest question is whether Barcelona will need to engage in a transfer deal for their starting players.

The focus will be on players who would leave a significant net profit or footballers with excessive salaries that the club cannot afford. The game begins from now on, and the aim is to sell before buying, although reinforcements will also be needed to compete at the highest level in Europe.
