Chadi Riad (Real Betis, £7.5m)

After a successful season out on loan, Real Betis have made centre-back's move south permanent.

The 21-year-old Moroccan international made 30 appearances in 2023/24, and his sale will help Barcelona balance their teetering books.

Riad made one La Liga appearance for Barcelona.

Marc Guiu (Chelsea, £5m)

Adding yet more exciting young players to their squad, Chelsea have swooped for Marc Guiu.

The 18-year-old, seemingly frustrated by his lack of playing time, has left for a bargain £5m.

Guiu played just 185 minutes for Barca, but scored two goals, including one in the Champions League against Club Brugge.

Estanis Pedrola (Sampdoria, £2m)

Another loan made permanent, Serie B's Sampdoria have signed Estanis Pedrola from Barcelona.

The 20-year-old winger averaged a goal every three games in Italy.

Pedrola's only Barcelona senior minutes came in a 11 minute cameo against Mallorca in 2022.

Sergiño Dest (PSV Eindhoven, free)

Emblematic of Barcelona's poor business over recent seasons, Sergiño Dest will leave Catalonia for nothing, four years after joining for almost £20m.

Dest is a talented right-back and a full USA international, but never made an impression at Barcelona.

He has spent the last two seasons out on loan at AC Milan and current club PSV Eindhoven.

Sergi Roberto (free agent)

A squad stalwart, Sergi Roberto's contract at Barcelona has expired, after making 373 first time appearances since 2010.

A versatile, hard-working and technically sound player, Roberto can play in central or deep midfield, as well as at right-back.

The 32-year-old one-club-man is open to staying on at the club, and is in negotiations over fresh terms, but Roma and Juventus are believed to be monitoring his situation.

Marcos Alonso (free agent)

Also without a club is veteran left-back and Real Madrid youth product Marcos Alonso.

Joining on a free from Chelsea in 2022 as cover at full-back, Alonso has made 29 appearances for Barcelona, mostly coming last season.
