FC Barcelona, according to the Mundo Deportivo, have created a ‘master plan’ to bring back Lionel Messi and make it possible to officially register him in LaLiga. Earlier it was reported that Barcelona will need to save around €200 million in order to bring back Messi this summer. One of the major plans Barcelona have this summer is offloading at least five or six players and this will generate enough space in their budget to not only sign Messi, but also sign at least four new players.
Two players who have been linked with moves away from Barcelona are Ferran Torres and Ansu Fati. The duo has not been impressing for Xavi’s squad this year and the Spanish club could sell them in order to generate the funds needed to invest this summer. It is expected that Barcelona are demanding at least €40 million per player. Two other players who are being put forward are Franck Kessié and Eric García. Both joined the club on a free transfer from AC Milan and Manchester City and it is believed Barcelona are open for offers.
The fifth and final player whose name is in the media is Raphina. The Brazilian international was signed last summer for a €58 million transfer fee from Leeds United. However, Barcelona would be willing to consider selling the winger if the bid matches their own valuation. Meanwhile, Barcelona are planning to offer Alejandro Balde and Inaki Peña new deals, whilst the generated funds would make it possible for the club to finally register the new contracts of Ronald Araújo, Gavi, Marcos Alonso and Sergi Roberto.
