Barcelona is willing to sell the most valued player of La Liga

The selection of Xavi Hernandez as Barcelona‘s next manager has reignited optimism at Camp Nou. The fans expect their club legend to perform miracles.

Xavi intended to reorganize the team. Barcelona requires more depth in its lineup. Due to injury, the majority of the players are unable to participate. During the winter transfer window, the La Liga giants expected to spend big.

Reshuffling the Team

Barcelona has enormous ambitions for the next winter transfer window. Both Raheem Sterling and Karim Adeyemi are on the wish list, and neither will come cheap. The Catalan club requires funding to realize its dream window. They are, however, cash-strapped, and nothing would be possible until departures were made.

Barcelona had barely €20 million in January, according to reports earlier this month. Due to the renewals of Gavi and Dembele, as well as Ronald Koeman’s dismissal, the figure was further decreased. Barcelona, on the other hand, does not have the financial means to make any major changes.

Departures are necessary at this time. While Samuel Umtiti and Luuk de Jong have long been at the top of the list, there is a fresh unexpected addition.

The Most Valuable Player

De Jong, who is regarded as one of the top midfielders in the current crop, has a contract with Barcelona until 2026. According to Spanish daily Diario AS, Barcelona is aiming to raise finances by selling De Jong and expects to receive substantial offers from prominent European clubs.

According to Transfermarkt, De Jong is the most valuable player in La Liga right now, with a market value of roughly $102 million. According to Teamtalk, Barcelona, which is in severe need of cash ahead of the forthcoming transfer windows, is willing to accept offers as low as $78 million for De Jong.

According to reports, even though new head coach Xavi Hernandez is not in a rush to make new players, the club has set a budget of less than $11 million for the January transfer window.

Xavi is said to think Pedri and Gavi, two up-and-coming midfielders, can fill the void left by De Jong’s departure. De Jong, who joined Barcelona from Ajax in 2019, is having a difficult season in 2021-22 due to injuries and poor form.

Selling the Valuable Players

The Blaugranas are willing to trade Frenkie de Jong if the proper offer comes in, according to Jose Alvarez of El Churinguito. The club sees him as a player who may fetch a large sum of money.

At club level, the Dutch midfielder has had a difficult start to the season. With Pedri, Gavi, Nico, and Riqui Puig, Barcelona has a plethora of midfielders. However, it’s tough to imagine the Spanish side letting go of a player with so much potential, especially now that Xavi Hernandez has arrived.

The coach has chosen to start over with each player. De Jong, on the other hand, will have the best chance of resuming his Barcelona career on a positive note. Working closely under Xavi Hernandez could also help him develop his game more quickly.
