Overhaul: 12 stars linked with Barca exit

LaLiga

Amid rumours of mounting financial concerns at the club, LaLiga giants FC Barcelona have reportedly transfer-listed the majority of their squad, with a number of high-profile stars now facing the exit door.

According to The Sun, Barca have put all but three of their players up for sale as the club frantically moves to raise the amount of £106 million (R2.3 billion) that is needed to balance their books.

It is claimed that Lionel Messi, Marc-Andre ter Stegen and Frenkie de Jong are the only players exempt from the Catalan giants' proposed culling, with the remainder of the squad available to the highest bidders. 

While that does not mean the entire squad will be sold, Barca will reportedly entertain offers for its highest-paid players, and those whose salaries can no longer be justified, in an attempt to ease their financial burden.

Antoine Griezmann, Samuel Umtiti and Ousmane Dembele are reportedly at the top of the list, with the 2018 FIFA World Cup-winning trio all linked with moves to the Premier League.

Ivan Rakitic and Nelson Semedo have been linked with a swap move to Juventus, one that would see Miralem Pjanic move in the opposite direction, while Arturo Vidal and Rafinha could move to Inter Milan.
