Adriano Correia, having fallen out of favour at Barcelona, is expected to leave the Nou Camp following the signing of Lucas Digne from Paris Saint-Germain. However, Sport predicts the Brazilian left-back is not the only one who'll be waving goodbye to Catalonia, as as many of seven more players could follow him out of the door this window, including Manchester City target Claudio Bravo.

The La Liga and Copa del Rey champions have already announced the signings of Denis Suarez, Samuel Umtiti and Digne. A forward is the next priority, as Luis Enrique is still demanding a versatile player to back up the MSN trio of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar.

But to make space for new recruits, some members of the current squad will need to be let go. Dani Alves, Marc Bartra and Sandro Ramirez have all left the Nou Camp in recent weeks, and Sport predicts as many as eight players could now get their marching orders.


The Brazilian left-back is widely predicted to be the first casualty, with the signing of Digne from PSG leaving him as third-choice in his role. Lazio have been linked with his services in recent weeks, but Barcelona will not let him go for free.

Claudio Bravo

The Chilean goalkeeper has been a key player for Luis Enrique during the last two La Liga campaigns. However, Sport claims that the boss is ready to give Marc-André ter Stegen the number one role ahead of next season, and will part ways with Bravo for the right price. Pep Guardiola reportedly wants to lure him to Manchester City and, at the age of 33, Sport claims the Catalans would let him go for €20m (£16.8m, $22.2m).


Thomas Vermalen

The Belgian centre-back has dropped down the pecking order following the arrival of Umtiti. West Ham United have emerged as the most likely destination, but the player would reportedly prefer to move back to Arsenal instead in a deal worth around €12m.

Douglas Pereira

The Brazilian right-back was said to be on the verge of a move back to his homeland weeks ago, but he reportedly turned down the offers to stay at Barcelona. However, he is not in the club's plans as, despite the departure of Alves, they have Aleix Vidal and the versatile Sergi Roberto as cover in that part of the pitch.

Alex Song

The former Arsenal midfielder's future at the Nou Camp looks over, despite still having one year on his contract. He failed to make the impact expected during the last two seasons at West Ham, and Barcelona are trying to get rid of him one more time.

Cristian Tello

Following loan spells at Porto and Fiorentina the winger is expected to leave on a permanent basis. The Serie A side are reportedly interested in his signature, but don't want to match Barcelona's €8m demands. Swansea City, Liverpool and Southampton have also been linked with him.

Martin Montoya

The former Spain international right-back was once considered one of Barcelona's most promising players. However, he has failed to live up to expectations, and after spending last season on loan at Inter Milan and Real Betis the club are looking for a divorce.

Alen Halilovic

Barcelona still have big faith in the future of the Croatian, but president Josep Maria Bartomeu recently suggested that Halilovic could move on loan to continue his development. Valencia are interested in securing his services, and Barca may sell him with a buy-back option.
