Barcelona will have a lot of work to do in the remaining days of this summer transfer window, as they are expected to make some departures and of course some transfers.
The Catalan club is currently linked with the transfer of four players, while six are expected to leave – some of them against their will.
Who can be transferred and what are the chances:
Ivan Fresneda: 50 percent – Deco have set their sights on the 18-year-old right-back. He could be a real asset to the team, given his age, talent and a price tag of only €10-15 million.
Joao Cancelo: 35 percent – Barcelona have a great interest in the Portuguese. Unlike Deco, Xavi and Alemany want to see an experienced right-back in the squad. But a move can only happen if he agrees to take a cut on his hefty salary.
Bernardo Silva: 10 per cent – Joan Laporta has confirmed he would like to move for the attacking midfielder this summer. However, the harsh truth is that Barca cannot meet Man City’s demands at the moment – barring a miracle.
Giovani Lo Celso: 10 percent – The Argentine is said to be Bernardo Silva’s alternative. However, nothing is advanced at the moment.
Who can leave and what are the chances:
Nico: 99 percent – The defensive midfielder did not travel with the squad for the pre-season tour. He has already arrived in Porto to finalize his loan deal. It’s only a matter of time until it becomes official.
Clement Lenglet: 70 percent – The transfer probability percentage has dropped slightly as the Frenchman travels with the squad to the USA. His future will be decided after the tournament, with Tottenham Hotspur remaining the only candidates for his signature so far.
Abde: 45 per cent – The Moroccan intends to stay at Barca next season, even cutting his holiday short by a week to go on the pre-season tour. However, his future may lie elsewhere.
Franck Kessie: 45 percent – Juventus are said to have made an offer for the midfielder, which is better than what Barca are currently offering him. However, the midfielder is more excited to stay at the Blaugrana. Now it all depends on him.
Ferran Torres: 10 per cent – Like Kessie, the Spaniard is keen to stay in the squad. Despite being far from Xavi’s first choice, the manager came up with a new position to deploy him next season, meaning he is almost part of the plan.
Ousmane Dembele: 10 percent – PSG are very interested in the French winger. They are said to be willing to activate his €50 million release clause. The player, however, only wants to stay at Barça.
