Barcelona to sell Philippe Coutinho, Samuel Umtiti and Ivan Rakitic

Barcelona want to raise €300m in player sales this summer and will listen to offers for Philippe Coutinho, Samuel Umtiti and Ivan Rakitic, say ESPN FC.

The Blaugrana are keen to strengthen their squad further this summer and have already agreed an €80m deal with Ajax midfielder Frenkie de Jong.

This follows on from a heavy 24 months of spending which has seen big outlays on Ousmane Dembele, Coutinho, Arturo Vidal, Arthur Melo, Nelson Semedo and Malcom – over €400m on transfer fees alone.

The report claims Barca now also want to sign Ajax captain Matthijs de Ligt, Eintracht Frankfurt striker Luka Jovic and are also considering Atletico Madrid’s Antoine Griezmann.

Coutinho, Umtiti and Rakitic have been identified as the three players who are not among the first players on the team sheet who could command big fees and free up vital wages.
