When asked who will definitely be part of the club’s future, Bartomeu said, “Messi cannot be touched, and there are other players who will not be sold either. We are talking about André Ter-Stegen, Nelson Simedo, De Young, Clement Lingley, Othman Dembele and Griezmann.” .
Bartomeu talked about the high wage bill in Barcelona, stressing the need to reduce it radically, and hinting that Luis Suarez, Sergio Busquets, and Jordi Alba, in addition to Arturo Vidal, Ivan Rakitic and Gerard Pique, welcome their departure.
“I don’t want to talk badly about anyone, but we have to start dispensing with some of them with pride,” the Barcelona president said.
He added, “There are players with their own eyes who know that they will not continue. Are they being sold for free? All options are available.”
