While talking to El Nacional, Erik ten Hag has revealed a plan if he is appointed as the head coach of Barcelona. Part of the plan includes getting rid of some redundant players in the team and clearing space for new arrivals.

- Samuel Umtiti

Samuel Umtiti is no longer the player he was before. The French defender has declined drastically in form since the World Cup. The 2018 World Cup was the last time the whole world got to see the best version of Samuel Umtiti.

Barcelona are on the lookout for a destination for him, according to reports, and a transfer fee involvement would not be bad. Barcelona needs money as the club is experiencing some downtime.

- Philippe Coutinho

Philippe Coutinho has the potential to earn up to €40 million in the next transfer window.The Brazilian attacking midfielder is still less than thirty and he's still got some years left in him.

Injury and position are the main reasons why the Brazilian star has not been able to live up to his potential at Barcelona. Coutinho loves to play centrally, but Barcelona had Lionel Messi for that. Now, with Messi gone, his injury crisis has hindered him from establishing himself.

- Luuk de Jong

An emergency signing, Luuk de Jong should be sent back to Sevilla. The Dutch striker is yet to register a goal or an assist since his arrival at the club. Barcelona may honor his one-year loan contract to the end of the season when he will leave.

- Martin Braithwaite

Martin Braithwaite is a hard-working player and it is evident in his playing style and fighting spirit. The Danish striker will most likely be sold to provide space for new signings. Erik ten Hag plans to sign Erling Haaland.

Martin Braithwaite is currently valued at €9 million and a transfer fee of around €10 million will be enough for any transfer deal.

- Sergio Roberto

Sergio Roberto has also declined in form and the Spanish midfielder has lost his pace, which has made him a liability for the team. He can play either as a right-back or as a midfielder, but his below-par performances have made him redundant.
