FC Barcelona The president forgot many ‘heavyweights’
Bartomeu: “Koeman has said that the pillar of his project is Messi”
The president of Barcelona Josep Mara Bartomeu He showed his face and left indications of what may happen in Barcelona in the coming weeks. The issue of casualties is one of the main ones that the new technician and the current directive will have to deal with, with Bartomeu at the helm.
In these important changes, there are many important players who appear in the pools to lighten the salary mass of the squad. And in that sense, Bartomeu inadvertently pointed out many of the footballers who have formed the backbone of the Barça team in its most recent period. The Barça president spoke only of seven non-transferable: “Who is non-transferable? Leo Messi. He knows it. He is the best player in the world. He would also talk about Ter Stegen, Semedo, De Jong, Lenglet, Dembl. Griezmann himself“, he sentenced.

To these seven names we must add that of Ansu Fati, which Bartomeu mentioned earlier making it clear that he will not leave the club. “Ansu Fati has a large market but we do not sell it. It is non-transferable.”
That is, a total of eight footballers whose departure is not contemplated. Players like Jordi Alba, Gerard Piqu, Sergio Busquets, Ivan Rakitic, Arturo Vidal or Luis Surez. Names that have been on everyone’s lips as the main outlets to talk about a true revolution in Can Bara.
Now it only remains to see if the club can accommodate some of them and if the players themselves are up for the job of changing the scene.
