    Realistic:

    GK: MATS, Neto, Pena
    RB: Semedo, Roberto
    CB: Pique, Lenglet, Araujo, Garcia, Umtiti
    LB: Alba, Gaya
    DM: FDJ, Busi
    CM: Pjanić, Puig, Roberto, Coutinho, Alena
    AM: Messi, Coutinho
    LW: Fati, Griezmann
    RW: Dembele, Trincao
    ST: Suarez, Griezmann, Lautaro

    3 GKs + 21 outfield players + 2 players in hospital


    Optimistic:

    GK: MATS, Neto, Pena
    RB: Emerson, Roberto
    CB: Pique, Lenglet, Garcia, Araujo, Sarr
    LB: Estupinan, Akieme/Sarr
    DM: FDJ, Monchu
    CM: Pjanić, Puig, VDB, Roberto, Monchu, Pedri (would prefer him going on loan though)
    AM: Messi, VDB
    LW: Fati, Depay
    RW: Dembele, Trincao
    ST: Griezmann, Messi, Depay

    3 GKs + 21/22 outifeld players

    GK: MATS, Neto
    RB: Emerson, Roberto
    CB: Lenglet, Garcia, Pique, Todibo/Araujo/Sarr
    LB: Estupinan, Alba
    DM/CM: De Jong, Pjanic, Puig, Sangare, Roberto, Pedri, ???
    AM: Messi, Griezmann, Pedri
    RW: Dembele, Trincao
    LW: Depay, Fati
    CF: Griezmann, Malen

    Messi should never player against small clubs, and never again in the Copa even if its against Real. Also no more full games for him, 70-80 minutes max per game.

    Sell Semedo, Umtiti, Alba, Busquets, Rakitic, Vidal, Suarez for peanuts:
    30+15+20+10+10+10+10+40=145m

    Buy Garcia, Gaya, VDB:
    30+50+50= -130m

    Positive balance (+15m) and almost all big contracts gotten rid of.

    =============================================

    GK: Mats, Neto / whatever, anyone

    Defense:

    RB: Emerson (free), Sergi (Semedo out +30m)

    CB: Pique, Lenglet, Araujo, Eric Garcia (-30m) (Umtiti out + 15m)

    LB: Jose Gaya (-50m), Firpo (Alba out +20m)

    Midfield:

    DM/CM: FDJ,
    Pjanic, VDB (-50m), Monchu, Puig, Alena (Busquets out +10m, Rakitic out +10m, Vidal out +10m)

    Attack:

    RW: Dembele, Trincao
    AM/CF: Messi, Griezmann (Suarez out +10m)
    LW: Fati, Pedri (Coutinho out +40m)

    Easier said than done.

    Would like another actual CF there, but don't think anyone good and cheap exists.

    Would like another actual CF there, but don't think anyone good and cheap exists.
    Think we would get more money out of some players + Rafinha will be gone to Lazio if rumours are truth.
    Good CF on the market, maybe Milik from Napoli as he doesn't want to extend his contract.
    Otherwise I would go for Moussa Dembele (Lyon) or Alexsander Isak (Sociedad).

    All don't need big fat 5+ Million contracts, so would give us some breathing room to get our finances in check.
    Expectations should be no more than QF CL and 2nd place La Liga next year, time to clean up house.

    Rebuilt:
    GK: MATS, Pena
    RB: new RB, Roberto
    CB: Lenglet, Pique, Aroujo, Garcia
    LB: Alba, new LB
    CM: FDJ, Pjanic, new hybrid CAM, Puig, Alena, Monchu - During the season try to find some space for Moriba, Reis to get minutes
    RW: Dembele, Trincao
    CF: Griezmann, Messi
    LW: Fati, Pedri

    RB + LB are really giving some headache. We have talent, but they just lack IQ

    No way we should pay 30m for Garcia with just a year left on his contract nor 50m for Gaya.

    If Koeman intend to keep Busquets as a backup, Roberto as a midfielder, Coutinho at the club, sign another midfielder, how will Riqui and Pedri get any minutes?

    I think media is in the dark for now and decisions has either A- not leaked or B-Not even made.
    The whole rumors doesn't make any sense, no big picture for squad, hell not even a small picture

    I don't think we'll buy another midfielder. There is just not enough money.

    Pedri should go on loan. If Gladbach is still interested I'd send him there.

    Puig I don't really rate all that much but he should get enough minutes.


    If we'll stay with 4-3-3 then I think midfield will look like this:

    Pjanic/Roberto - FDJ/Busi - Coutinho/Puig

    Far from perfect but I'd say a pretty big improvement over what we've had last season. Ideally I'd prefer a more athletic/stronger midfielder who could play alongside FDJ and Pjanić/Puig (depending on the opponent, result,...) over Coutinho though.

    Will never happen (mostly because Alba doesn't want to leave) but if Simeone is really interested in Alba I'm wondering if we could make a swap between him and Partey.

    The squad is barely going to change from what would have been.

    Rakitic/Vidal and Umtiti were already done.

    Only Suarez will go and cost a fortune to do it.

    The GK and back four will the same shitty defence that conceded 8 to Bayern. Two shit full backs and bog standard CBs with no leadership.

    Busi and Roberto will probably find a lot of minutes in midfield.

    The revolution is just one big con and an attempt to get rid of Suarez a year early.

    Let's see how far they go with letting players go, but don't undersell it like "Rakitic/Vidal and Umtiti were already done". If they were so done, they wouldn't have been regular starters - bar constantly injured Umtiti - unde EV just some months ago.

    Agreed.

    - Busquets, Rakitic, Vidal and Suarez are dropped from the starting 11 is already going to be a big difference.
    - Rakitic, Vidal, Suarez, Arthur and Umtiti will be gone from the squad.
    - Dembele and Trincao will be additions. Not sure what will happen Pedri and the rest of the returning loaned players.
    - I expect a couple of signings. There's a limit to what we can do with the resources of the club. And I'm not sure the current management should be making too many these decisions.

    Right now it doesn't look like barely any change. I'm on a wait and see mode, though.

    Andres DON Iniesta is the only player in football's history to be Man of the Match in a Champions League final, EURO final and World Cup final.

    Out:
    First and foremost: Suarez
    Messi
    Rakitic
    Vidal
    Umtiti
    Busquets
    Coutinho

    In:
    Aouar
    Donny
    Konate

    Wait till next summer and go all in on Sancho and then activate Haaland release clause.

    MaTS
    Semedo - Konate - Lenglet - Alba
    Aouar - FDJ - Donny
    Sancho - Haaland - Dembele

    Boom sextuple winners 3 times in a row.
    I didnt touch Alba or Semedo because i dont know who to replace them with...
