It has starting to become more and more obvious which players may end up leaving the club as the summer transfer window draws nearer. In an effort to significantly reduce the salary bill, a few key players, similar to previous season, may be pushed to leave.
According to speculations, Barcelona will attempt to profit this time around by signing players like Ferran Torres, Ansu Fati, Jordi Alba, and perhaps even Eric Garcia. Despite the fact that each of the four is a crucial member of the squad, the club believes that they are all replaceable because of recent inconsistencies.
Regarding Ferran, SPORT has claimed that the player wants to stay with the team over the summer. In fact, he is confident in his skills and thinks that he will eventually play a significant role in Xavi’s initiative.
Despite the fact that his duties have primarily been limited to a bench duty, Ferran believes he will soon see game action.
According to the source, the midfielder was the subject of inquiries from Atletico Madrid and an unnamed Italian team in January over a prospective loan deal. Barcelona first declined owing to a lack of substitutes, but they have not made a decision about his situation.
With over €55 million, Manchester City sold the Spaniard to Barcelona during the winter transfer window of 2022. There were severe concerns about his finishing ability, despite the fact that his start was impressive—four goals and four assists in 18 games.
As a result of Ferran scoring just two goals in 23 games and missing seven significant chances, those uncertainties have been confirmed statistically this season. His xG is also over two goals below average.
Xavi, who has already asked for the summer’s addition of another forward, is deeply concerned by Ferran’s lack of production given the team’s terrible front-of-goal performance.
