Barcelona are willing to listen to offers for the majority of their players, according to Spanish media.

Despite president Joan Laporta’s assertions to the contrary, Barcelona are not out of the woods yet when it comes to their dire financial situation. Former coach Xavi revealed as much and was duly sacked for not towing the club line.

As a result, the club have now decided that they are willing to listen to offers for all but six of their players, according to Sport. Barcelona’s only ‘untouchables’ are Pau Cubarsi, Lamine Yamal, Pedri, Gavi, Fermin Lopez and goalkeeper Marc-Andre Ter Stegen.

All of their other players are fair game – at the right price, of course.

Barcelona willing to sell Araujo

This news comes as a surprise not so much for the fact that the club are willing to sell most players but rather because Ronald Araujo is not included among the ‘untouchables.’

Barcelona’s star centre-back is a man in demand and Bayern were keen on signing him in January. At the time, they were told that the Uruguayan was not for sale and that the Blaugrana would try to get him to sign fresh terms.

Barcelona still maintain that they would prefer to keep him, but their stance on a potential exit has softened significantly. If an irresistible offer were to arrive, they would entertain it.

The same goes for the likes of Alejandro Balde, who is coming off a difficult season, Andreas Christensen and Jules Kounde, among others. The latter has been frequently linked with a Premier League and FootballTransfers has been able to exclusively reveal Man Utd’s interest in him.

Barcelona would even be ready to shift Frenkie de Jong at the right price due to the fact that he is on a sizeable salary. Ferran Torres and Raphinha are also on the market, as are Ilkay Gundogan and Robert Lewandowski, though Barcelona don’t expect offers for the two veterans.
