Premier League clubs to be offered nine Barcelona stars in summer sale

Premier League clubs will be offered a star-studded host of Barcelona players to buy or loan this summer, including World Cup winner Antoine Griezmann.

The Spanish giants are desperate to raise funds amid the coronavirus outbreak and are open to offers for a host of players, with the exception of superstar Lionel Messi.

Griezmann's availability will put a number of European giants on alert, including Manchester United – who tried to sign the 29-year-old before he joined Barcelona last year from Atletico Madrid.

And England's top clubs have been informed that there are a further eight players available to buy or recruit in loan deals this summer.

Former Liverpool star Luis Suarez and Ousmane Dembele are amongst the forwards available, while midfielders Ivan Rakitic and Arturo Vidal have also been offered.

World cup winner Samuel Umtiti is among the defenders available alongside Nelson Semedo and Sergi Roberto.

And, of course, Philippe Coutinho has been offered to a select group of clubs despite the uncertainty shrouding his future at the Camp Nou.

27-year-old Coutinho is Barcelona's record transfer but has struggled to settle with the Catalan club since joining from Liverpool for £142m in January 2018.

He has spent this season on loan at Bayern Munich but the Bundesliga giants turned down the opportunity to buy the Brazilian playmaker and his agent said last month that he "would love" to return to the Premier League.
