FC Barcelona have earned an unprecedented, club record-breaking amount from sales this summer after nine players left Nou Camp.

The Catalan giants sold winger Gerard Deulofeu (£13m) to Watford with the trio of Lucas Digne (£18m), Yerry Mina (£28.5m) and Andre Gomes (£2m, loan) all of who joined Everton.

Full back, Aleix Vidal also joined Sevilla for £7.6m and Brazilian midfielder Paulinho made a £50m return to China with Guangzhou Evergrande.

Three other players, Douglas and Adrian Ortola left on loan while Andres Iniesta left on a free.

According to the SPORT report, Barcelona were also growing concerned at the mounting wage bill with the squad so large and it quickly became a one-in, one-out policy for boss Valverde.

Paulinho – £44.2m

Yerry Mina – £28.5m

Lucas Digne – £18m

Andre Gomes – £2m (LOAN)
