Players that are confirmed leaving is, Jordi Alba, Sergio Busquets,Fransisco Trincao other player very well leave Franck Kessie, Ferran Torres, Clement Lenglet, Samuel Umtiti, Abde, Sergino Dest and Ansu Fati. Barcelona having an overhaul, so will nice to see whats happening in the summer.
The squad will need a proper DM, CM, RB and Wingers and a rotating backup striker, Iñaki does look good enough to be a backup keeper.

We need also to offload Alonso, he can't play LB, if Balde get's injured our left side is dead.
Also same for the right back, drop in quality is really big.

If they get in enough midfielders then FDJ becomes and option at CB if Xavi has anything in mind to replicate the way Pep uses Stones to move into midfield on the ball.

Full Pep if sold Kounde would be a full back pairing of Araujo and Balde... fastest FB pairing in world with Christensen CB and FDJ 'false CB' who steps into midfield on the ball.

FDJ the new Beckenbeur in that position, stepping into midfield and driving up park when on.

Oohhh lala.

From the best generation maybe ever to this.

That best generation is like 7 years away already and we've had some worse squads in past few seasons than what we have now. Maybe not looking at names but I clearly have more hope for the future of current team than the one with aging amigos.

Obviously still a lot of work to be done and some glaring holes in the team so this summer will be even more important than last year. Hopefully better executed and won't waste as much money on wrong players we already try to offload only 12-18 months after their arrival.

Arleast summer will be intersting, if we alemany and deco make good signings, in 2024 summer we will be on top of chain with transfers like Mbappe not excluded.
 
We need to hire that guy who made PL winner out of Leicester. He recognized & bought valuable ones - Kante, Mahrez, Vardy and such players for peanuts. We overpay all the time, we are cow for milking... something like UTD.

Specially in our financial situation we can not afford to waste money...

Worst thing is that it look to me that even if we had $ we would spend it on some overpriced mediocre players...

I hope we continue to explore the free agent market which I assume we will.

Much better to just sign players for free who have the same likelihood to flop as a 40-60 million player of the same age.

Reserve the cash flow for young promising prospects who have sell on value if they fail.
