Man Utd boost with ‘Barcelona to transfer-list Frenkie de Jong along with Ter Stegen and Dest’ as Xavi targets rebuild

BARCELONA will reportedly place a number of players on the transfer list ahead of the January window.

According to Gerard Romero, Frenkie de Jong, Sergino Dest and Marc Andre Ter-Stegen are set to be replaced next year as Xavi looks to overhaul the squad.


The decision comes after Barcelona crashed out of the Champions League group stages for the first time since 2000.

Spanish journalist Toni Juanmarti has claimed that the tensions in the dressing room were very high following the 3-0 defeat to Bayern Munich.

Xavi sent a forceful message to his players and said: "Some of you don't understand what it means to play for Barca."

The Spanish giants have dramatically fallen in the past year and are now set to compete in the Europa League whilst also trying to find form in LaLiga, where they currently sit in seventh.

Financial issues have had a severe impact on the side, meaning they have to cash in on current squad members in order to spend money.

De Jong, Dest and Ter Stegen have all under-performed recently so Xavi, who has already expressed his anger and frustrations with the team, is open to replacing each of them.
