With the new season fast approaching, here are four players who might not belong to Barcelona by next week.

Click through the gallery above to see four players Barca could sell next, according to reports.

The Catalan club has managed to raise money with a few player sales in this transfer window, but the coming few days and weeks could see several more stars of higher profiles leaving the Blaugrana.

According to The Athletic, French defender Samuel Umtiti might make way before the 2021/22 season, with the centre-back not playing a single minute of Barca's most recently friendly despite being available.

Martin Braithwaite is in the same boat as the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner after also not getting on the pitch for that match. The Denmark international is believed to be of interest to a number of teams in Europe, including clubs in the Premier League.

Bosnian midfielder Miralem Pjanic could also depart the Spanish giants after his playing time last season was limited under Ronald Koeman, with the cash to be made from his and more sales set to help alleviate Barca's financial struggles.

Here are some images of Lionel Messi enjoying his holiday in recent weeks: 

Another player who could soon leave Barca is Ousmane Dembele, whom the club reportedly wanted to sell before he suffered a long-term injury while on duty with France at the 2020 UEFA European Championship.

New signing Memphis Depay is currently wearing the Frenchman's No. 11 jersey in pre-season, with the former Olympique Lyon winger understood to yet to be handed his own shirt number.  

Despite these players' futures under Koeman and president Joan Laporta being heavily uncertain, Sport has reported that LaLiga is set to receive a major cash injection from an investment firm named CVC (Capital Partners), which could pump €2.7 billion (R45 billion) into the league.

This reportedly means that €270 million (R4.5 billion) will be paid to Barcelona in exchange for a 10% share "of the commercial business and a participating account of the future profits obtained from this activity".

Laporta might, therefore, not be under as much pressure to sell the aforementioned players, although they are likely to still be let go as part of a trimming of the squad.
