A report in Marca has drawn together an XI of players that the club have missed out on, although curiously there is no goalkeeper included – the club have signed Marc-Andre Ter Stegen, Jasper Cillessen and Neto in recent times, and have not missed out on any preferred targets.
The three defenders outlined are Matthijs de Ligt – who joined Juventus from Ajax last summer – along with Inigo Martinez from Athletic Club Bilbao and Manchester City’s Eric Garcia, who has been strongly linked with a return to the Camp Nou this year.
The midfield is former of Paris Saint-Germain star Marco Verratti alongside his former teammate Adrien Rabiot, now at Juventus.
Two other PSG stars – Angel Di Maria and Neymar – are included alongside Inter’s Lautaro Martinez and Memphis Depay of Olympique Lyonnais, with Rodrigo Moreno – who joined Leeds from Valencia this summer – completing the team.
The XI is managed by Al Sadd boss and former Blaugrana captain Xavi Hernandez, who the club missed out on earlier this year.
