5 players who should be sold by Barcelona this summer
- These five players could be sold by Barca this summer due to their poor performances.
FC Barcelona find themselves three points behind league leaders Real Madrid, having played a game more than Los Blancos. Although Barcelona have still shown glimpses of their usual best, they have been rather underwhelming this season, especially in Europe.
They were beaten 4-0 by PSG and 3-0 by Juventus, both away from home. Barcelona, who are recognised as having one of or the best attack in world football, were humiliated in both of these matches.
If the Catalan giants are to re-establish themselves as the best in the world and win the Champions League, they will need to sell some players in the summer. These five players could be sold by Barca this summer due to their poor performances.
#5 Andre Gomes
To sign for Barcelona, a player must be extremely talented, and Andre Gomes is exactly that. However, his performances since moving to the Nou Camp have been very disappointing.
When given the opportunity, the central midfielder has often shown he does not have enough quality to play for a side as big as Barcelona.
In each game he has played, the Portuguese international hasn’t shown anything spectacular that would suggest he will be at the club in the long term. Additionally, the games in which he has played in, he hasn’t impressed Barcelona fans, with many of them being angry when he is given the chance to start.
It’s been proven that it takes somebody extremely talented, like Xavi, Andres Iniesta, Rakitic and Sergio Busquets to roam within the Barcelona midfield. Unfortunately, this is a talent that Gomes doesn’t have.
Gomes could probably play for most of the sides in La Liga, as he proved at Valencia. He may go out on loan before leaving but for Barcelona to improve, he should not be a part of their future.
