Barcelona are reportedly eager to boost their financial position by June 30, primarily by parting ways with a number of their first-team squad.

Barcelona are reportedly keen to finalise as many player exits as possible by June 30 in a bid to boost their financial position.

Given the implications of the coronavirus pandemic, the Catalan giants are said to have lost in excess of £100m, severely hindering their hopes of making new additions during the next transfer window.

According to ESPN, the current plan is to offload several members of their squad before June 30, the date when the financial year in Spain reaches a conclusion.

Club officials are likely to prioritise the sales of Philippe Coutinho and Ousmane Dembele, although the pair will not generate the same kind of fees which were paid for their respective signatures in the past.

Nelson Semedo, Junior Firpo, Jean-Clair Todibo, Ivan Rakitic and Arturo Vidal have also been tipped to leave the La Liga leaders over the coming months.

Barcelona hope that several departures will boost their chances of signing Juventus midfielder Miralem Pjanic and Inter Milan forward Lautaro Martinez.
