With Real Madrid officially sealing the league title, Barcelona are set to endure a trophyless 2023/24 campaign.

Barcelona’s poor season could only help double down their effort to undergo a major overhaul in the coming summer, with the future various star players likely to come under scrutiny.

Five untouchables at Barcelona

To that end, a recent report from Diario AS has pointed out how Barcelona could be set for a mass clearout this summer, especially if the club fail to finish second in the league.

In fact, Barça have identified only five players who are untouchables. That means the departure of these select individuals will not be considered as they are too important to the Barcelona project.

Unsurprisingly, the list is led by Pau Cubarsi – the young centre-back who has emerged as one of the best defensive prodigies in the world.

Barcelona will not consider the exit of Cubarsi, even as the club are open to listening to offers for defensive duo Jules Kounde and Ronald Araujo.

Another defensive player who is considered an untouchable is Marc-Andre ter Stegen. The German international has failed to replicate his performances from last season but remains a key individual in between the sticks. His exit, therefore, won’t be considered.

Moving into midfield, Barcelona are sure about continuing with Gavi, but Pedri surprisingly fails to make the list.

It appears Barça are increasingly worried over Pedri’s poor injury record and the youngster could be allowed to move on if he fails to move past his leg injuries.

Fermin Lopez, meanwhile, is also considered an untouchable, largely thanks to his breakthrough campaign this term and his ability to rise to the occasion when his team needs him the most.

Finally, the list concludes with none other than Lamine Yamal, who is undisputedly the most promising prospect at Barcelona right now.

Yamal is expected to become the face of the Barcelona frontline in the years to come, with many even considering him as a potential candidate for the iconic number ten jersey next season.
