Barcelona are reportedly ready to let eight key players leave Camp Nou this coming summer transfer window concerning the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak across the world.

According to Barca Blaugranes, Ivan Rakitic, Arturo Vidal, Samuel Umtiti, and Philippe Coutinho are some of the players set to leave the Catalan club.

Other players the La Liga champions are willing to let go in a bid to sign some of their transfer targets at the end of the season include; Antoine Griezmann, Carles Alena, Martin Braithwaite, and Neto.

Rakitic and Vidal are out of contract next summer, which means Barca will be keen to sell the midfielders soon to avoid them walking away for free in 2021.

Umtiti has not been on top form since his most recent knee injury and could move to the Premier League, while Coutinho has drawn interest from top clubs in England.

Griezmann’s future may depend on whether Paris Saint-Germain star, Neymar or Inter Milan’s Lautaro Martinez end up at Camp Nou.

At the same time, the Blaugrana will study any offers that arrive for Braithwaite or Neto.

Press recalls that Barcelona’s squad is presently divided over a proposed pay cut from the club.
