Barcelona will have to let go of either one of Memphis Depay or Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang this summer. They have signed Robert Lewandowski and Raphinha to bolster their attack, but need to free up the wage bill to register their new players.
As a result, either one of the two will have to leave the club to make way for the new forwards. Aubameyang joined the club only six months ago on a free transfer from Arsenal, but could be on his way out already even though he has performed well.
Barcelona need to free up wage bill to register new players
Memphis Depay has been in talks with Barcelona for the termination of his contract. The player has surrendered his number 9 shirt, which has been given to Robert Lewandowski.
As a result, there is a good chance that the Dutchman might be on his way out of the club this summer. Juventus, Tottenham Hotspur and Newcastle United have been rumoured as potential destinations for the player. But, neither of them are willing to pay a €20 million fee for him at this point.
With Ferran Torres, Ansu Fati, Ousmane Dembele and Martin Braithwaite already available alongside the new signings, Xavi has a wealth of attacking options available. But, the club will need to find a way to register new signings before the window closes.
