How will the Barcelona starting XI look on the opening day of next season?
Several Barcelona players are thought to be heading for the exits after the appointment of Ernesto Valverde as manager, with the former Athletic Bilbao boss taking over from the departing Luis Enrique last month.
Big-money signings Arda Turan and Andre Gomes are among the list of players thought to be facing the axe, but the Catalan side have already been chasing new reinforcements this summer.
Manchester United ace Ander Herrera is high on Barcelona’s shopping list, but the Red Devils are unlikely to part with the Spaniard easily.

The La Liga giants are also in the hunt for Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Marco Verratti, with the 24-year-old Italian reportedly keen on a move.
Former Barca youth player Hector Bellerin has been a long-term target, while cover in central defence could arrive courtesy of Ajax prospect Davinson Sanchez.
With so many comings and goings, the Barcelona team could look very different by the opening day of next season.
