The seven Barça players that can now negotiate with other clubs

January marks the last six months of several players' contracts at Camp Nou

It's already January 2nd. The transfer market is open until the 31st. Also from today, the players who end their contracts with their clubs on June 30th are free to negotiate with other teams. There are seven cases at Barça, although some of them have already begun to negotiate their renewal.

Memphis Depay is out of contract in the summer. He arrived free from Lyon in 2021 and signed for only two seasons. He had a great start under Ronald Koeman, but an injury, the arrival of Xavi and signings meant he lost prominence in the second part of last season. The club put him on the market in the summer, but his high financial demands frustrated a move to Juventus. More injuries and the signing of Lewandowski mean that he has only played three games this season. Barça would like him to leave this month and he has been offered to several teams, including Newcastle, but everything seems to indicate that he will wait until June 30 to leave as he arrived, as a free agent.


The captain's case is special. At the age of 34 and after fifteen seasons in the first team, Busquets planned to put an end to his career at Barça on June 30 and embark on a new adventure in MLS. But he continues to be indisputable and a very important player for Xavi, who has not let him leave this winter and he would like him to continue for another year -- which is also due to the club's financial limitations on the market. Busquets continues to meditate on his future. One possibility is that he renews for only six months.


Another of the captains who is nearly out of contract. Last summer, he seemed set to leave, but he ended up renewing for a season with a significant salary reduction. Xavi believes in him. He is a wild card because he can play at right-back or in midfield. He could benefit from the lack of options that Barça have in terms of signings. No one has spoken to him about a renewal officially yet, but it is more than likely that he will be offered another one-year renewal. His salary is no longer a problem.


The Spanish defender arrived at the last minute last summer from Chelsea on a free. He was going to sign for two seasons, but the difficulties that Barça have with LaLiga's 'Fair Play' caused him to sign for only one. In any case, the foundations for a renewal have already been laid. His performances have been good playing both left-back and center back and his continuity for two more seasons could soon be sealed.


Like Alonso, he arrived at the last minute in September on a free. He did so from Arsenal after the signing of César Azpilicueta failed to materialise. He also signed for one season. His performances have not been so good. He has played five games and Xavi has other preferences at right-back, including Sergi Roberto, Koundé and Araujo. In fact, Barça are tracking the market because they want to reinforce this position and it is highly unlikely that Bellerín will continue at the club. His destiny may be Real Betis.


After leaving on loan to Galatasaray last season, he returned this summer to be Ter Stegen's understudy. Xavi is happy with him and the goalkeeper is determined to continue and wait for an opportunity. For this reason, he has been negotiating his renewal for weeks. It could be announced soon and his new contract would run until 2026.


Another goalkeeper whose contract ends on June 30. He is the captain of the B team, although he is in the dynamics of the first team and is considered the third-choice stopper. Barça have the option to renew his contract for two more seasons. They will do it. Tenas also wants to continue.
