If they want to keep the Argentine superstar, who is officially an independent agent, the Catalan giants desperately need to raise funds.
Barcelona have agreed a deal to sell Carlos Elena to Getafe as they continue their frustrating cost-cutting exercise to ensure they can sign a new deal with Lionel Messi.
La Liga pay cap regulations mean Barca are currently unable to register any of their new signatories or agree to a new contract with Messi. His previous contract expired at the end of last month.
As a result, the club is desperately looking to raise money for both the players and the wage bill, with Elena’s latest player knocking on the door.
