FC Barcelona among top earners from summer sales


With Malcom’s move to Zenit Saint Petersburg confirmed for €40m plus €5m in add-ons, it brings Barça’s total income from sales to €134.5m this summer.

As things stand, Malcom’s deal is the most profitable of the summer. Next is Jasper Cillessen’s move to Valencia (€35m), then Andre Gomes to Everton for €25m.

The list of footballers who have departed the first team has left plenty of cash on the table and the other one being Denis Suarez, who rejoined Celta Vigo for €15m.

The other three deals have involved players in the youth academy. Cucurella is expected to bring in €10m, Osasuna paid €2.5m for Marc Cardona and Saint Etienne parted with €2.5m for Sergi Palencia.
