The Dutch forward has impressed during pre-season for Barca, but it’s no secret that the Spanish giants are looking to sell him to fund their other transfers. Depay joined the club last year but isn’t in the club’s future plans. Barcelona are now looking to cash in on the player before the season starts, Football Espana reported.

Frenkie de Jong

De Jong’s battles with Barcelona have been made public ever since the club tried to sell the player to Manchester United. De Jong doesn’t want to leave, but Barcelona have given him two options; either accept a transfer to Manchester United or stay and take a salary cut.

Neto

Having joined Barcelona in 2019, Neto has only made 21 appearances for Barcelona. The Brazilian goalkeeper did keep seven clean sheets in that time but has little hope of displacing Marc-André ter Stegen. Barcelona have been offering the keeper to numerous clubs but are yet to get an offer for his services.

Samuel Umtiti

Umtiti has been with the Blaugrana since 2016 and still has two years left on his contract. He has become an outcast at Barcelona though and was left out of the squad that recently concluded a pre-season tour of America. Umtiti has since been linked with a loan move to Olympiacos in Greece.
