Barcelona set for financial boost from summer sales

Barcelona stand to receive an important injection of cash in the final days of the summer transfer window if their former players make transfers to other clubs, according to MD.

These players, namely Jean-Clair Todibo (Nice), Juan Miranda (Betis), Sergio Akieme (Almería), and Philippe Coutinho (Aston Villa), no longer belong to the club, but Barça retain a transfer percentage on any future sale. 

This sum could significantly contribute to maintaining financial fair play, however, despite existing offers on the table from respective clubs for weeks, these deals have not all yet been finalised.

Barça remain cautious about speculating on potential figures that might not materialise, so they are reluctant to spend until confirmation of these sales.

Sergio Akieme (Almería):

Considering that Almería turned down a €7.5m offer from Real Betis earlier in January, it is thought that a deal might happen for a sum nearing €10m. Barcelona would likely receive around €700,000 from the deal.

Jean-Clair Todibo (Nice):

When Barça sold the centre-back for €8.5m in 2021, they retained a 20 percent share of a potential future transfer. They stand to earn approximately €8m if a transfer takes place. The player has been linked with Manchester United recently.

Juan Miranda (Real Betis):

The Blaugrana could receive around €5m from the sale of Miranda if he was to be sold for a fee in the region of €13m. 

Philippe Coutinho (Aston Villa):

The Brazilian has been linked with a move to the Middle East in recent weeks. If Villa are to sell Coutinho for more than €20m then Barça will receive 50 percent of the sale fee, providing a massive financial boost.
