- Barcelona are planning a massive clear-out as soon as the summer transfer window opens
- Philippe Coutinho, Samuel Umtiti, Junior Firpo are all billed to depart Camp Nou
- Barcelona need huge funds to be able to do business at the end of the current campaign
Spanish giants Barcelona are set for a massive clear-out as reports say no fewer than 14 players will be asked to leave the club during the summer transfer window.
Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo via SPORTbible claim that the Blaugrana are preparing to initiate a "remodelling" of their squad going into next season.
Reports have it that the future of the manager Ronald Koeman is yet to be ascertained as they are still doing everything possible to ensure their captain Lionel Messi signs new contract.
Following the team’s financial situation, Barcelona will part company with majority of their first-teamers - whether that means through sales, loans or releases.
Neto, Samuel Umtiti, Junior Firpo, Matheus Fernandes, Martin Braithwaite, Philippe Coutinho and Miralem Pjanic are just some of the high-profile players who president Joan Laporta and Barcelona are looking to offload in what Mundo are calling "a revolution" at the Nou Camp.
The trio of Coutinho, Pjanic and Umtiti may be the hardest to shift due to their high wages.
With two games remaining in La Liga, Barca are in third position on 76 points.
Meanwhile, Barcelona are reportedly planning to focus their attention on securing Erling Haaland's signature over Lionel Messi's future at the club.
The Catalans are hoping to strengthen their squad for competitions for the coming season after a series of questionable performances on the last few campaigns.
Their record in Europe in the last few seasons have been below average as they have failed to go beyond the quarterfinals of the Champions League since they last won the title in 2015.
Hence, the Norwegian prolific goals scorer has become a top target for the Camp Nou outfit but might achieve their aim at the expense of Messi whose deal expires at the end of this season.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Cristiano Ronaldo did not score his 100th goal for Juventus during their win against Sassuolo but he also became the first and fourth faster player to achievement that landmark.
It took just 131 games for the 36-year-old to achieve the feat and during his career with Real Madrid, he scored a century of goals in 105 appearances for Los Blancos.
Things might not be going according to plan for the Portuguese icon but CR7''s goalscoring prowess is second to none in world football.
