FC Barcelona have many names to look at next season, and they have to understand their individual values. Not every player will be as important as the other to the club, and parting ways with them could be key. However, it is equally important that Barcelona evaluates and makes those decisions wisely.

That is why the return of several loanees to Barcelona will be carefully studied by the club. Names like those of Alex Valle and Julian Araujo are seen as important because of the positions they would help with once they are integrated back into the team. Another name, for his inability to do the same thing, may just have to find a new club.

According to SPORT, Barcelona director Deco and the club have reportedly already conveyed to 21-year-old returning Barça forward Ansu Fati that he has no place in the squad for next season. They believe Hansi Flick already has the profiles he needs and will not necessarily need Fati to help him next season.

While previous reports suggested that Ansu Fati may still have a place at the club, it seems that the possibility of that happening may have dampened in recent days. For now, new Barcelona coach Hansi Flick already has close to six names that he considers to be guaranteed for him as attacking options heading into next season.

This includes Robert Lewandowski and Vitor Roque as his two options for the striker position. Over on the left wing, Joao Felix and Ferran Torres are seen as the two available options, and the right wing sees Raphinha and Lamine Yamal staying there as guarantees unless a big offer arrives for the Brazilian winger at Barcelona.

Moreover, Barcelona are still looking into signing other forwards such as Dani Olmo, Nico Williams, or even Luis Diaz from Liverpool. Eventually, if Ansu Fati does end up getting pushed away from the club, that may even leave his number ‘10’ vacant, and there is still a debate to be had if it should go directly to a certain homegrown 16-year-old prodigy at the club.
