Barcelona are reportedly preparing for life after Neymar, with a move to Manchester United possible this summer.
Jose Mourinho is said to want the Brazil superstar as a marquee signing and United could match his £170million release clause.
And following difficulties on and off the pitch at the Nou Camp, according to Spanish outlet Diario Gol, Barca have replacements in mind should they lose Neymar.
United would face competition from Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City.
But a switch to Old Trafford may be in the pipeline with Paulo Dybala and Kylian Mbappe alternatives in Barca’s eyes.

Wayne Rooney is reportedly open to rejoining Everton – but it will cost United £20m.
The club’s record goalscorer has struggled under Jose Mourinho and his career in Manchester is set to come to an end.
According to The Sun, Rooney is ready to go back to Goodison Park and snub the wealth of the Chinese Super League.
The 32-year-old would also accept a pay cut from £250,000 a week to £120,000 at Everton.
However, while United could look for a clean break as they plan for the future, a severance package for Rooney’s remaining two years of his contract would mean they must fork out £20m.

It’s not right to be concentrated only on one target
Chelsea boss Antonio Conte refuses to believe Mourinho would prioritise Europa League glory over Premier League progression.
United have a clogged fixture list but can still qualify for the Champions League via either competition.
“No, I think Manchester United have the possibility to arrive in the table in the first four places," Conte said.
“But I’m sure United’s players know this situation. They want to fight to arrive in this position.
"It’s not right to be concentrated only on one target if you have the possibility with two [options] to reach the Champions League.”
