Barcelona were humbled by Bayern Munich in the semi-finals of the Champions League and it is likely that there will be huge change at the Camp Nou this summer.

For starters, Victor Valdes revealed that next season will be his last at the club. However, there's still a chance of him leaving this summer, and there are only two realistic candidates for his place: Liverpool's Pepe Reina and Borussia Mönchengladbach's Marc-André ter Stegen.

Recent reports by Reina's agent suggest that the Spaniard won't leave Anfield next summer so it's likely ter Stegen will be Barcelona's new goalkeeper next term.

Defence has become a huge problem for Barcelona now as Carles Puyol is old and Gerard Pique is on the decline.

They need to buy reinforcements to improve their squad depth and could again become the best team in Europe.

Borussia Dortmund's Mats Hummels is a likely candidate to move to Camp Nou and even Chelsea's David Luiz could go to Barcelona, as talks are held about his future with Jose Mourinho.

The Catalan giants have enough money to afford both but it's likely that Hummels will stay at Dortmund as he feels more at home there. 

Xavi may not get as much game time as he used to get before as age is catching up with him, and Andres Iniesta can slip into his position but that leaves a void in the attacking midfield position and that could be filled by Cesc Fabregas, who wants to stay at the club.

Barcelona's 2013/14 Potential XI:

Goalkeeper: Marc-André ter Stegen
Right-back: Dani Alves
Centre-back: David Luiz
Centre-back: Gerard Pique
Left-back: Jordi Alba
Centre-midfielder: Andres Iniesta
Centre-midfielder: Sergio Busquets
Right-wing: Pedro
Attacking-midfielder: Cesc Fabregas
Left-wing: Neymar Jr.
Centre-forward: Lionel Messi 

How do you think Barcelona could line up next season?
