The Barcelona coach wants to get rid of players who aren't useful for next season

Xavi wants to work with players whom he believes in this season. Pre-season begins on July 4. Five or six names are yet to arrive, depending on what the club can do in the transfer window. There’s also a series of players whom Xavi thinks should leave.

Riqui Puig, Neto, Mingueza, Lenglet, Umtiti and Wague are the names on the list that Xavi wants out. They have been told that they aren’t needed at the club and should look for moves away.

Some of them, like Neto and Umtiti, have been in the same situation for a while. Wague comes from a year out injured, so it might be harder for him. Mingueza and Riqui are Barcelona youth products but their time is up and they had just a few minutes last season.
