FC Barcelona is planning ahead for next season as the club wants to make signings in the summer transfer window. It will be tough for the Catalan club to make marquee signings since they can't sign players for a high transfer fee. FC Barcelona wants to bring in free agents who bring quality, like Robert Lewandowski and Ilkay Gundogan. Barcelona might follow that same method for this summer transfer window, but the club wants to get rid of players to free up the wage bill. FC Barcelona may have already identified who the first player to go will leave as he has not seen many minutes, and the club will let him go for free.

FC Barcelona could lose four players in the squad because of contract situations. Joao Cancelo and Joao Felix's loan deals run out in late June, and two players' contracts that expire this summer are Sergi Roberto and Marcos Alonso. While Barcelona is trying to find a solution for the loan players, the club was unsure what to do with Roberto and Alonso until now. Fabrizio Romano reports that Marcos Alonso will leave Barcelona as a free agent at the end of the current season. There is massive respect between the club and the player, but he’s leaving in June; the decision has been made.

Sergi Roberto could also leave for free, but the final decision will also depend on Xavi’s future. Relevo reports that FC Barcelona did not intend to renew Sergi Roberto's contract, but his recent performances have raised doubts. Sergi Roberto has started in the last two FC Barcelona matches in La Liga against Atletico Madrid and Las Palmas.
