Sources: Barcelona eye €150m in player sales

ESPN

Barcelona still hope to bring in another €150 million in player sales this summer as they continue to seek exits for Philippe Coutinho, Malcom and Rafinha Alcantara, sources at the club have told ESPN FC.

Bids would also be considered for Ivan Rakitic, Samuel Umtiti and Arturo Vidal, but Barca are not actively looking to move any of those players on at the moment.

The Spanish champions set a target of making more than €250m in sales in April, as revealed by ESPN FC, to help balance the club's accounts and fund moves for the likes of Frenkie de Jong and Antoine Griezmann. So far, they have received over €80m for Jasper Cillessen, Andre Gomes, Denis Suarez, Marc Cucurella, Marc Cardona and Sergi Palencia.

There has not yet been a single concrete offer for Coutinho, Malcom or Rafinha but Barca remain optimistic that bids will arrive.

Coutinho moved to Camp Nou for a fee which could rise to €160m but Barca are prepared to sell him for around €105m. Several teams have shown an interest through intermediaries but there have still been no bids.
