Ernesto Valverde’s team blew a 3 goal lead against Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool and concerns have grown about the team’s and the coach’s ability to take a step forward, so as much as 10 players (and Valverde) could be on their way out of Camp Nou in the summer, according to Spanish outlet AS.
As per the report, Jeison Murillo and Kevin Prince Boateng would go back to their former teams once their lone spells run out, while the team has already let Thomas Vermaelen know that they’re not interested in extending his contract.
Moreover, Jasper Cillessen is keen to make a move out of the team, as he’s sick and tired of being the second wheel to Ter-Stegen and knows he’s not going to get much playing time with the Catalans beside Copa del Rey unless the German keeper falls down with an injury.
Malcolm, Arthur, and Rafinha will also try and make a move out of Camp Nou, as neither of them has really lived up to the expectations and know they’d be better off elsewhere, with some of them drawing some serious interest from Serie A giants AC Milan.
Philippe Coutinho is also a lock to be sold by the team, as he struggled to be at his best all season long and was one of the worst players in both legs vs Liverpool, failing to prove his worth and establish himself as a key part of the team.
Samuel Umtiti isn’t happy at Camp Nou either, with Clement Lenglet outplaying him for the starting center-back spot and him already demanding the team to let him walk away in the summer, while Ivan Rakitic’s tenure with the Catalans is also set to come to an end after quite a successful run with Barcelona.
