Emerging report hints that the transfer decision of the Spanish La Liga outfit Barcelona would be affected because of the defeat they suffered against the English Premier League outfit Liverpool in the semi-finals of the Champions League.

Barcelona were stopped from fulfilling their dreams of lifting the Champions League as they were defeated 4-0 in the second leg of the semi-finals despite securing a 3-0 win in the first leg at the Camp Nou.

The defeat suffered by Barcelona remains a big one to the club and management and it has been reported that Argentina international Lionel Messi is yet to get over it.

According to reports, some players must be allowed to leave the club as soon as the summer transfer window is opened because they have just little to contribute to the club which is not enough for a title win.

Meanwhile, the Spanish champions did not have a motive of having some of their players sold but the report claims that the Argentina international is the man behind the push and he already has the name told to the management.

The report claims that Lionel Messi wants World Cup winner Samuel Umtiti, World Cup runner-up Ivan Rakitic and Brazilian international Philippe Coutinho out of the club.
