The veterans have not been performing well and could be victims too, like Koeman

Barcelona’s crisis could take more victims than just Ronald Koeman. The club are also looking at some of the senior players. There is worry over the performances of Busquets, Pique and Jordi Alba, players who have been almost essential in Koeman’s schemes.

The Rayo game was a drama and the team looked weak, with some players more to blame than others. Barcelona know the veterans have to leave but the economic situation made it difficult last summer. Now Xavi will arrive and has to deal with this topic. The clear out must be done with maximum respect for the players.
