Xavi puts four players on the transfer list at Barcelona
Xavi is continuing his renovation of the squad at Barcelona by making four fringe players available for transfer this summer.
The Catalan boss has made his mark at the club since being appointed in November and he is aiming to make wholesale changes to his side by trimming the wage bill.
All four players have found games tough to come by and have been receptive to the decision to put them on the transfer list.
What other players could leave Barcelona this summer?
With the club still reeling from their financial issues which lost them Lionel Messi last season, Barcelona are still trying to cut costs by selling backup players.

“Riqui Puig’s future? We’ll be clear with all the players. We need to be fast”, he added.
Ousmane Dembele’s future is also up for discussion with his contract expiring next month and the club having yet to agree a new deal for the enigmatic forward.
Frenkie De Jong is the first team player most being linked with a move away, with new Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag said to be targeting the Dutchman.
