Barcelona List Five Players To Offload In January

Barcelona are reportedly prepared to ship out up to five players during the January transfer window as they aim to raise funds for future business.

The La Liga powerhouses have been hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic and are facing losses of up to £88m in the wake of the ongoing outbreak.

Barcelona are believed to be embroiled in an internal battle with players and staff over wage cuts, and the Catalan giants are now supposedly looking to sell a number of players in a further attempt to decrease their wage bill.

Ousmane Dembele, Martin Braithwaite, Carles Alena, Junior Firpo and Samuel Umtiti could all be heading for the Camp Nou exit door in a couple of months' time, according to Mundo Deportivo.

Manchester United were linked with a swoop for Dembele during the summer but the former Borussia Dortmund man ultimately remained in Catalonia, although a recent report has suggested that the Red Devils still harbour an interest in the Frenchman.
