Barcelona To Sell All But Six Of Their Players This Summer

Barcelona's financial situation has been worsened by the coronavirus pandemic and that means that the majority of the first-team squad's futures are now unclear.

According to Spanish outlet Marca, only Lionel Messi, Antoine Girezmann, Gerard Pique, Frenkie de Jong, Marc-Andre ter Stegen and Ansu Fatu are safe.

A number of players in the dressing room are concerned with defender Clement Lenglet the latest to speak out.

‘'No one knows what the future holds as a footballer, but I hope to be at Barcelona next season,' the Frenchman told RMC.

‘’It will depend on the transfer window. It's a special period for clubs and no one is exempt from anything, but I hope to stay.'’

Croatian midfielder Ivan Rakitic also expressed his frustration recently.

Arturo Vidal is another older player said to have been made available to other clubs.

The 33-year-old was on an Instagram Live last week and said: ‘'I'm very happy and settled in Barcelona.
