FC Barcelona must downsize. It’s a bit of a hit of the summer during each summer transfer window for the Catalans. In 2024, Camp Nou residents will still have to bring in money. Apart from a few exceptions like Ilkay Gündogan, Lamine Yamal, Pedri, Gavi or Pau Cubarsi, almost everyone can leave. Ronald Araujo and Frenkie de Jong are thus courted by Bayern Munich. The young Vitor Roque is in the sights of several clubs, including Bétis, Sevilla and OL, who want to welcome him in the form of a loan.

The undesirables Clément Lenglet or Ansu Fati, on loan this season, will also have to pack up. Jules Koundé is not necessarily pushed towards the exit. But the Blaugranas must part with at least one defender since they have Araujo, Christensen, Iñigo Martínez, Pau Cubarsí in their ranks, not to mention the probable return of Eric Garcia. So they will listen to offers if they come. And there could be quite a lot of them. Indeed, the versatile profile of the Frenchman, capable of playing as a right-back as well as in the central axis, appeals to many people.

Koundé has clubs after him

Author of 42 appearances in all competitions this season, including 39 as a starter, the former Bordeaux player (2 goals, 4 assists in 2023-24) is attracting envy. Mundo Deportivo reveals that Chelsea, Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain are still interested in the 25-year-old footballer. Koundé has been popular with the Blues for several months, even years. But these are not the one and only clubs to have a big weakness for the Paris native.

MD adds Inter Milan and Newcastle to the list of his many suitors. Bought for 50 million euros in 2022 from Seville, the French defender could therefore be sold if a good offer arrives. But the Barcelona people will also have to convince him to leave. MD specifies that the footballer under contract until 2027 intends to continue with the Catalans next year. Barça will therefore have to decide quickly on him, as on the other players potentially transferable this summer 2024.
