According to Sport, five key players could be released by the Blaugrana.

The midfielder was United manager Erik ten Hag’s summer transfer priority and the Red Devils even pushed through a £71.5million offer.

Chelsea also joined the race – but the Dutch international was never convinced to move.

The Russian international has registered a total of three goals and five assists in 17 appearances in all competitions this season.

Finally, Pablo Mari, on loan from Arsenal, is set to return to action in two months after being stabbed in a knife attack.
