Barcelona’s loss against PSG in the Champions League has severe implications for the club, both in terms of their finances, as they will miss out on an extra €60 million in revenue, but also in terms of personnel.

Ronald Araujo’s red card, for example, has clouded his future at the club, with reports claiming that the Barcelona board are now in two minds about his future.

While the president wants him to stay, some officials want the Uruguayan gone if an offer worth more than €80 million hits the table.

It has also given rise to Barcelona fans complaining about Robert Lewandowski and Jules Kounde’s performances, with the latter already linked with an exit in the summer.

And now, Barcelona seem to be ready to throw another player under the bus.

Cancelo’s future in doubt

According to a report published by SPORT, Barcelona are not entirely happy with Cancelo’s performance against PSG. Some people close to President Joan Laporta want the player to leave this summer after his display in the UCL.

The Portuguese fullback was responsible for stopping Ousmane Dembele on that wing. And while he did for a while during the second-leg, he did not mark the Frenchman properly during their equaliser.

He also then gave away an unnecessary penalty for PSG’s third goal, converted by none other than Kylian Mbappe.

Even while going forward, Cancelo did not offer much, creating one chance. Moreover, he also squandered a chance in the first-leg where he should have arguably passed instead of shooting.

Difference of opinion at club

While there are people at the club who want Cancelo gone in the summer, there is also a large chunk of the board that want him to continue, especially due to his performances this season.

His willingness to wear the blaugrana colours is also a huge factor in the operation. He has already rejected approaches from Arsenal, Al-Hilal, Chelsea, and Bayern Munich, which paves the way for Barcelona and Man City to reach an agreement.

There is already progress on that front, with the Premier League leaders expecting €40 million for his services in the summer.
