Barcelona Transfers: 10 Players They Must Sign This Summer

How much of that Neymar money is left?

It's been a strange season for Barcelona. A last-minute slip-up at Levante aside, the Catalans went almost their entire league campaign undefeated, and yet there is an unavoidable sense that two trophies isn't quite enough.

Partly, this is because of the club's intense rivalry with fellow Spanish juggernauts Real Madrid, whose recent run of Champions League victories has cast an inescapable shadow over the rest of La Liga. But it's also the humiliating nature of their quarter-final defeat to Roma, in which they surrendered a three-goal lead to limp out on away goals.

To compound things, Barca have also had to say goodbye to Japan-bound Andres Iniesta, one of the game's all-time great players, and a figure who has been central to their success over the last decade. Like the search for Alex Ferguson's successor, finding someone to step into the playmaker's shoes is a near-impossible task.

If there's good news for Barca fans - apart from the obvious fact that completing the Double is a feat about which most of their rivals can only dream - it's that their club have a track record for splashing the cash. Last year they spent more than €300 million filling the gap left by Neymar - and reports suggest they'll be reaching deep into their wallet once again this summer.

Here are 10 players that could be on their radar.

10. Antoine Griezmann (Atletico Madrid)

Admittedly there won't be any prizes for correctly predicting that Antoine Griezmann is heading for Catalonia. For nearly a year he's been the subject of a long-winded transfer saga, and all the noises we hear suggest it will be completed after the World Cup.

The really interesting part is how he fits into this current Barca side, which is already equipped with three world-class attackers in the shape of Messi, Suarez and Coutinho, and a promising €100m rookie in Ousmane Dembele.

The latter could conceivably head out on a loan, although that doesn't quite clear the way for Griezmann. They'd still be playing what looks, on paper, like an incredibly top-heavy side.

Given that it was defensive lapses that cost them dear in Rome, manager Ernesto Valverde will have a job on his hands trying to integrate another superstar forward while also shoring things up at the back.
