Barcelona set to let eight players leave

Barcelona prepares massive squad overhaul this summer

All the players included in this list were hand-picked by the team's execs and coach Ernesto Valverde.

Barcelona may be getting closer to ending the La Liga season without a loss, but that doesn't mean that everyone that contributed to thar milestone gets to stay with the club next year.

According to a report by Catalan- based newspaper Sport, the team's hierarchy and coach Ernesto Valverde have decided which players they would be ready to let go. Some of them are still being considered as club assets, but the club won't make it hard for teams interested in those players to try and sign them.

The list of players includes names such as André Gomes, Paco Alcácer, Lucas Digne, Aleix Vidal, Denis Suárez, Rafinha, Munir and Gerard Deulofeu.

Ousmane Dembelé could be included in that list if Antoine Griezmann ends up joining Los Blaugranas this summer, according to Sport's sources.

Out of those eight players, the only one that could be "rescued" is Denis Suárez, since his skills resemble Andres Iniesta's playing style. Furthermore, the midfielder gets along just fine with Lionel Messi, which could be crucial for his future.

Lucas Digne, Paco Alcácer and Aleix Vidal may feel inclined to search for other employment opportunities, especially due to their lack of playing time. Vidal's case is special, since he arrived during Barcelona's transfer ban in 2015 and wasn't able to establish as an option for neither Luis Enrique nor Valverde. During this season, Vidal was dropped to a third option at right back behind Sergi Roberto and new signing Nelson Semedo.

André Gomes is the clearest case of them all. With PSG and Valencia knocking on his door, the Portuguese midfielder has already asked to leave the club, mainly due to the fans' complaints about his performances.

Last, but not least, those players out on loan seem to have no desire of returning to Camp Nou. Rafinha has found a new home at Inter Milan (with the club eager to pay his buyout clause), Deulofeu has already stated he will push for an exit during the upcoming transfer window, and Munir may be inclined to continue playing for Alavés, where he's scored 13 goals in all competitions.

These transfers will help Barcelona in their attempts to boost their squad for next seaon, where their main goal will be to end Real Madrid's UEFA Champions League dominance.
