Barcelona could terminate the contracts of two veterans in their squad following the revelation made by Lluis Mascaro of SPORT.
The Catalonia team is considering the option of letting go of Gerard Pique and Jordi Alba when the transfer window opens in January.
Barcelona president Joan Laporta is keen on moving on without the services of Pique and Sergio Busquets due to their recent actions towards their downward renewals with the club.

Despite Barcelona selling off their economic levellers the club continue to have issues regarding finance and problems with fair play, and the president reached out to Pique and Busquets for a particular collaboration as they earn the highest from the current squad for some assistance, Mascaro writes.
The pair agreed initially but their agents back out at the last minute, which led the club to the sale of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. As a result, Laporta and club treasurer Ferran Olive also had to sanction a personal guarantee to register Jules Kounde.
Laporta was not excited with the actions of their representatives and what is even more troubling is the fact that the aforementioned footballers, along with Jordi Alba, have mortgaged the club to extent that they will collect a whopping €200 million in the next year and a half.
