Barcelona hoping to axe three players this summer

Marca have today released a report revealing the 76 players that have been put up for sale in La Liga. 

It's fair to say that a number of high-profile names feature on the list, including three players from Barcelona. 

Indeed, the report indicates that the Catalans are ready to offload the trio of Adriano, Thomas Vermaelen and Douglas ahead of the 2016/17 campaign.

It's not entirely surprising that Adriano looks set to leave the Camp Nou - the club have just purchased French full-back Lucas Digne. Italian outfit Lazio are currently the favourites to secure the player's signature. 

Vermaelen, meanwhile, has endured a tricky time at Barcelona since arriving from Premier League outfit Arsenal and has been linked to the likes of West Ham United and Liverpool recently. 

Players on the move 

And then there's Douglas, who has rarely featured for Luis Enrique's side since moving to them back in 2014. 

The report claims, meanwhile, that Real Madrid aren't looking to sell anyone, while Atletico Madrid are ready to offload as many as six players over the coming months. 

Indeed, it has been claimed that Javier Manquillo, Emiliano Velazquez, Oliver Torres, Bernard Mensah, Borja Gonzalez and Luciano Vietto could all be on their way out of Madrid.

Aside from the aforementioned Barcelona and Atletico stars, some of the standout players on the list include Alvaro Negredo from Valencia, Rafael van der Vaart from Real Betis and Luciano Vietto from Granada. 

Negredo and Van der Vaart, of course, previously starred in the Premier League for the duo of Manchester City and Tottenham respectively, but it's far from certain as to whether either player would be interested in heading back to England.

Ultimately, though, there are some impressive players on this list and there's every chance that one or two will arrive in the Premier League before the start of the new season. 

Anyway, you can see the full list here:
