Not De Jong nor Lewandowski, the player to leave FC Barcelona for $12 million

FC Barcelona could already plan their first sale for the season and it comes at a low price.

FC Barcelona are prepared to let go of this player to gain funds.

FC Barcelona does not want to lose key players despite having valuable players in the squad. The sale of players like Ronald Araujo and Frenkie De Jong has been discussed in the last few weeks due to interest from other clubs. The Catalan club was reportedly open to selling De Jong for over $100 million, but the team wanted to keep him since he is a crucial player. Araujo is also a crucial player, but Bayern Munich was willing to bid over $100 million in the latest winter transfer window. Barcelona is trying to find ways to gain funds in order to add players to the squad rather than replace players.

Barcelona is interested in keeping loan players Joao Felix and Joao Cancelo. The club is looking for the smartest way to save money and keep the two Portuguese players for next season. Barca is open to purchasing Cancelo on a permanent deal from Manchester City, while Felix would have to play on another season-long loan next season. Atletico Madrid is asking for a transfer fee of over $120 million for Felix, which is out of Barcelona's reach at the moment due to the economic crisis. Barcelona still has to figure out how to acquire the money to purchase Cancelo permanently.

The player they have in mind to sell is currently out on loan. Sergino Dest currently plays for PSV and is having a great season with the Dutch side. PSV is a league leader with 66 points, and they still haven't lost a league game this season. Ivan San Antonio from Sport reports that PSV is very pleased with Dest's performance and is expected to trigger his buy option of $12M, but they are looking to negotiate and reduce the price.
