Barcelona Have Told One Of Biggest Talents To Find A New Club And Nobody Can Believe It
Hours after Barcelona announced the signing of former Tottenham midfielder Paulinho, the club have reportedly told of their biggest talents to find a new club.
In a bizarre move from the Catalan giants, they are about to let 22-year-old talent Sergi Samper leave the club.
Samper, who made his first-team debut in a 1-0 home win against APOEL in 2014, has been told that he is no longer needed by Barcelona and plenty of supporters are shocked and appalled by the decision.

The midfielder joined Barcelona at the age of six and has dedicated his entire life to the Spanish giants.
Samper, who turned down Arsenal twice because he wanted to succeed at the club, was loaned out to Granada last season and impressed at the La Liga outfit, making 22 appearances in total.
But clearly his dedication and talent isn't enough for Ernesto Valverde and Barca officials.
Here's how Twitter reacted to the news:
On the same day Paulinho comes, the club tells Samper he won't be a first team player.- Lucas R. (@lucasammr) August 14, 2017
This board will crumble us to dust.
I'm so fucking angry right now, I cant describe it. They have told Samper to leave because of this whore cunt Bartomeu buying Paulinho- mx (@BUSQXETS2) August 14, 2017
Pep needs to sign Samper and turn him into a world class DM.- Josip (@jperkovic93) August 14, 2017
Samper turned down Arsenal TWICE because he wanted to succeed at the club of his life. Should've left when he could like Thiago.- Rafael Hernández (@RafaelH117) August 14, 2017
Barcelona doesn't want Samper apparently but spends 40M on a grandpa from Chinese league. R.I.P @FCBarcelona.- Gerard Piqué fan (@Piiquechu) August 14, 2017
Samper has been told to find a club. What a disgrace.- Rafael Hernández (@RafaelH117) August 14, 2017
Nine days after Barcelona received a record €222 million for Neymar, the Catalan giants have completed their first signing since his departure, but is Paulinho worth the £36.5 million fee paid?
During his time in the Premier League, Brazilian midfielder Paulinho struggled to really make an impact in England, but after a successful stint in the Chinese Super League, the 29-year-old has just completed one of the shock deals of the summer.
Has Paulinho pushed Samper out of the club, here?
