Laporta passes the broom through the Barcelona dressing room: goodbye to two ‘sacred cows’ in 2022

The FC Barcelona has started planning the next season. Despite the fact that they have several months left to know whether or not they will qualify for the Champions League, the Catalans, with the president Joan Laporta at the helm, they evaluate which players will be part of the next squad. Along these lines, according to information from the Spanish newspaper Don Balon, the boss of the Catalan institution has in his sights, for his casualty list, two ‘sacred cows’ from the locker room. It is about nothing less than Jordi Alba Y Sergio Busquets.

As indicated by the aforementioned source, at Barça they want to stop having these two players not because their performance has been bad this season. In fact, the left-back is a fixture in Xavi Hernández’s eleven, while the midfielder continues to be the owner of the Catalans’ midfield with his accurate vision.

The problem for Alba and Busquets is that Barcelona can no longer afford to pay 14 million euros for each one as a salary per season. It is for this reason that Joan Laporta, with the endorsement of the coaching staff, has decided to put both on sale in the next summer market.

According to the aforementioned source, Xavi Hernández would have no problems with the departure of Alba and Busquets. If Barcelona has shown something this season, it is that it has important spare parts to fill any position that is left unprotected in the Catalan squad.

It should be remembered that Jordi Alba and Sergio Busquets were already on the starting ramp at the end of the 2019-20 season after Barcelona was thrashed 8-2 by Bayern Munich in the Champions League. Finally, both players ended up staying, but they would run again with the same luck.

According to the Transfermarkt portal, a site specialized in soccer player appraisals, Sergio Busquets is valued at 9 million euros, while Jordi Alba reaches 15 million euros.
