Premier League clubs to be offered nine Barcelona stars during summer sales


Premier League clubs will be offered a multitude of Barcelona players to buy or lend this summer, including World Cup winner Antoine Griezmann.

The Spanish giants are desperate to raise funds amid the coronavirus epidemic and are open to offers for a multitude of players, with the exception of superstar Lionel Messi.

Griezmann’s availability will put a number of European giants on the alert, including Manchester United – who tried to sign the 29-year-old before joining Barcelona last year from Atletico Madrid.

And the best clubs in England have been informed that there are eight other players available to buy or hire loan offers this summer.

Griezmann tops the list of players made available

Former Liverpool star Luis Suarez and Ousmane Dembele are among the available attackers, while midfielders Ivan Rakitic and Arturo Vidal have also been proposed.

World Cup winner Samuel Umtiti is one of the defenders available alongside Nelson Semedo and Sergi Roberto.

And, of course, Philippe Coutinho was proposed to a select group of clubs despite the uncertainty surrounding his future at Camp Nou.

Coutinho, 27, is the record transfer from Barcelona, ​​but has struggled to settle with the Catalan club since arriving from Liverpool for £ 142m in January 2018.

He has spent this season on loan at Bayern Munich but the Bundesliga giants have refused the opportunity to buy the Brazilian playmaker and his agent said last month that he “would love to” return to the Premier League.

Coutinho has been proposed to Liverpool, Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur and Everton, according to the Daily Star, and it will also be proposed to Newcastle United if the Saudi takeover project of the club materializes.

However, his lucrative £ 12 million a year contract is unlikely to be affordable for most clubs and a loan transfer to Coutinho seems more likely than a permanent transfer to the top flight.
