Barcelona might have won the league title in style this season and remain on course to secure 100 points, but the way they lost to Bayern Munich in the Champions League semi-finals would not have gone down very well within the club.
We take a look at some of possible targets for the Spanish giants.
David Luiz | Chelsea
The young Brazilian has played his part in stellar performance for Chelsea this season, especially in the Europa League.
The addition of such a young and dynamic centre-back, who has the ability to move forward with the ball to provide assists and to score crucial goals, he would also add a lot flare to set pieces. Given the number of problems Barca have faced this season in defence, he could be a top priority signing this summer.
Javier Hernández | Manchester United
The young Mexican, who has been an explosive package for the Red Devils, would be a apt replacement for the ageing David Villa.
Hernandez's name in the list will raise a few eyebrows, but given the Mexican's ability to move within the box and score late in the games under pressure earns him a spot in this wish list.
Vincent Kompany | Manchester City
The Belgian's ability to play as a centre-back and defensive midfielder makes him one of the hottest properties in Europe.
His strong presence in defence during 2012 allowed Manchester City to lift the Premier League title for the first time in 44 years. Though his 2013 campaign was a little bit of a setback considering his injury, there is no denying the Belgian would be a great addition to the Barca's defense.
David De Gea | Manchester United
The Spain international had quite a good season at Manchester United and would surely consider playing for another of the biggest teams in Europe back in his home country.
His positioning and distribution has improved a lot when compared to his 2012 campaign. Considering Victor Valdes's contract situation, Barcelona would surely want to cash in on him to fund a move for a replacement.
Gareth Bale | Tottenham
Why not? A day doesn't go by when he is not linked to either Manchester United or Real Madrid. One of the hottest properties and best wingers in Europe, he surely has the potential to perform at the highest level.
With Alexis Sanchez past his prime and Cesc Fabregas under-performing since his sensational move to Camp Nou two seasons ago, he would surely bring a lot of pace and energy to the squad.
