Frenkie De Jong and Ronald Araujo are two of the most valuable players in the Barca team. Chelsea and Bayern Munich have offered the Catalan club 100 million euros for both De Jong and Araujo, respectively. Barca is targeting raising 200 million euros to avoid FFP problems in La Liga and the registration of players for next season. Barca also wants Joao Cancelo and Joao Felix to continue at the club. Joao Cancelo could be signed on a permanent deal for 15-20 million euros. In contrast, Barca could extend Felix's loan for an extra year.

While sporting director Deco and Barca president Laporta have expressed that they do not want to sell key players like De Jong and Araujo to gain funds, Barca plans to sell more studio rights. FC Barcelona plans to sell Barca Studios for 200 million euros. Barca has tried to sell percentages from the studio in the past to gain funds, but now they plan to sell the entire thing. The 200 million euros could be used to avoid breaching FFP rules, registration of players, and new signings. Many rumors suggest the club could use that money on one of the brightest young wingers in the world.
