Barcelona already sold a few players in the summer of 2023

Three players in particular could be leaving Barcelona this winter, and the team is allegedly open to bids “for all players” despite their ongoing financial difficulties.

The current La Liga winners are having difficulty convincing German investment fund Libero Football Finance to part with about €40 million (£35 million/$44 million), or 29.5% of Barça Studios. Relevo claims that they are currently in a race against time to locate a new investor.

Despite having made contact with some possible backers, the club recognises that much work remains, raising doubts about their ability to meet their immediate financial requirements.

Barcelona are more likely to sell players this winter if they are unable to find an investor. The sales of Ousmane Dembele, Antoine Griezmann, Frank Kessie, Nico Gonzalez, Abde Ezzalzouli, and Trincao brought in about €103 million ($113 million/£89 million) in the summer, but they still need additional money to balance their books. As a result, they are still willing to consider bids from any player.

Players including Andreas Christensen, Robert Lewandowski, and Jules Kounde are currently regarded as surplus to needs, hence there exists conjecture over their futures.

Although there are suitors in Saudi Arabia for the Polish striker, Barcelona is optimistic that they will receive sizable bids for both defenders.

The need to bolster the team during the January transfer window to turn around their declining fortunes and the financial difficulties are what drive the rush in player sales.

The need is heightened by President Joan Laporta’s intention to sign a midfield player this winter. However, the success of big acquisitions could be impacted by the club’s reduced leverage position.
