Raphinha & Dembele deals could spark end of 3 players' Barcelona careers

Two in, three out? FC Barcelona could be forced into some changes to their squad this summer if they sign two players.

The Catalan giants have already brought in two new faces in the form of Andreas Christensen and Franck Kessie this summer, both of whom arrived on free transfers.

They do not appear to be done there on the transfer front, though.

Firstly, despite his contract having run out at the end of June, Barcelona appear to be trying to re-sign Ousmane Dembele to a fresh deal.

And secondly, the Blaugrana are in the race for Leeds United and Brazil winger, Raphinha. Barca are understood to be the attacker's preferred destination, but the club's financial woes have made a deal with Leeds difficult to come by.

Regardless, should Barcelona re-sign Dembele, and complete a move for Raphinha, they will reportedly have to sell three players.

According to Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo, the potential arrival of both wingers would jeopardise the place of some of the existing players in Xavi's squad.

Memphis Depay is one among the players who could be forced out of the Camp Nou should Barcelona decide to bring in both Dembele and Raphinha.

Alex Collado is another whose future could be dependent on what happens with the Catalans’ efforts to reinforce out wide. And the third player who could be forced out of the club if the aforementioned signings go ahead as planned is Ez Abde.
