Koeman Plans Huge Squad Overhaul That’ll Dump These Twelve Barcelona Players

Barcelona new manager Ronald Koeman will be doing a huge fire sale with 12 players reportedly up for grabs.

The Spanish club are also believed to be on the hunt for new names in their dramatic squad overhaul.

But with Lionel Messi set to stay, the inflated wage bill must first come down to accommodate expensive signings, according to Spanish sports site Mundo Deportivo.

Along with Luis Suarez and French international Samuel Umtiti, the likes of ex-Middlesbrough flop Martin Braithwaite and Arturo Vidal could also be shown the door.

If Suarez, 33, were to leave, that would leave Braithwaite as the only recognised out-and-out striker at the club.

But Koeman is reportedly not keen on him either and is open to offers, despite the 29-year-old's professionalism.

Vidal's move to Inter Milan has stalled, and Umtiti also looks set for a move away from the Nou Camp after Koeman told him he can go.
