Barcelona News 2020: Barcelona is trying to capitalize on the rest of the transfer window. The club is yet to make any significant sales to raise the budget. New manager Ronald Koeman has limited funds to spare for the current transfer window. The coronavirus pandemic has hit the economy quite hard as Barca looks to recover.
Midfielders Ivan Rakitic and Arthur Melo left Barcelona in this window. Arturo Vidal is also poised to leave Camp Nou along with Luis Suarez. Koeman has decided his final squad to proceed to a new season. Suarez and Vidal are certainly out of the plans and selling them will help the finance. Both the players would free up big wage fees.

Todibo: Another loan spell awaits (Barcelona News 2020)
Jean-Clair Todibo is another example of surplus requirements. Barcelona will no longer hinder his want for a loan move. France Footballreports that the club is open to offers for the defender. The Dutch gaffer knows Todibo is quite promising and so doesnot want to lose the player. Hence, Barca will only consider loan deals, no transfer bids.
The 20-year-old will go out for loan for yet another season. Last term, he impressed with performances for Schalke in Bundesliga in 10 appearances. Todibo may end up in a competitive league in England. Premier League sides Leicester CIty, Everton and Wolves are eager to snap up the €25 million youngster.
If Todibo leaves for a year-long loan, Koeman will have limited options to fill in the backline. Clement Lenglet and Gerard Pique are in the first-team complimented by the injury-stricken Samuel Umtiti. Academy graduate Ronaldo Araujo is going to be the last option if there are lapses.
