Barcelona have been, among others, heavily linked with two of their stars, centre-back Matthijs de Ligt and midfielder Frenkie de Jong, for a long time.
Numerous outlets have reported that the Catalans are attempting to rebuild their midfield following the departures of Andres Iniesta and Paulinho while Ivan Rakitić and Sergio Busquets slowly approach their declining years.
