The Catalan is likely to leave this summer but not at any cost

Oscar Mingueza is one of the players who can leave Barcelona this summer the versatile Catalan defender has not featured regularly under Xavi Hernandez and both the club and the player feel it's best he finds minutes elsewhere.

Mingueza, who was close to joining Valencia in January, has a contract until 2023 but has only played 1,331 minutes this season so far across 26 appearances. He played more under Ronald Koeman than Xavi.

Barça recognise he's a player with a market given various teams have asked about him -- in LaLiga and abroad. However, the club are clear that they will not give him away, given his salary is not high and shouldn't be an impediment for interested clubs.

The Catalan club hope to make between €5m and €10m for the player, although he could also be used as a part exchange to bring the cost of potential signings down.
