Joan Laporta is Planning a Big Revolution in the Squad

Joan Laporta is planning a big revolution in the squad. When he arrived in 2003, 12 players left that summer. And the next year, 16 more players left the club. He is planning to do something similar this time. The club needs to free up some of the wage bill.


The intention of the board is not just to get rid of players who have played little role this season like Coutinho, Firpo, Neto, Pjanic, Umtiti & Braithwaite. The desired revolution will also affect some of the heavyweights — Players like Piqué, Sergi Roberto, Jordi Alba, Sergio Busquets and Antoine Griezmann are also uncertain at the moment.


The Barça management considers that another year without winning the league and without being able to fight in Europe is unacceptable and that the squad needs to be deeply renewed, despite being aware that the club's financial situation will make it difficult to do so.


Laporta is confident of sealing Messi's renewal before the start of the Copa America this summer. The club considers it an absolute priority, but the ongoing audit has made things progress slowly because the exact financial situation of the club is still not clear.
