9. Sergi Roberto

Sergi Roberto's 18-year association with FC Barcelona might end in the summer. The man who scored the winning goal in Barcelona's famous 6-1 comeback win against PSG has fallen down the pecking order in Xavi's plans. Despite providing four goal contributions in six league games, Roberto has found game-time hard to come by, playing less than 500 minutes across the league and Champions League this season.

The emergence of players like Jules Kounde and Joao Cancelo along with the strong midfield options of Frenkie de Jong, Gavi, Pedri and Ilkay Gundogan has reduced Roberto's opportunities to shine at the Catalan club.

Now 31, the Spaniard is fast running out of opportunities to show he is worth staying beyond the end of the season at Barcelona. With increased competition and Barcelona's poor financial situation, the Spaniard could be moved on. His free agent status, along with his versatility to play in multiple positions could make him a quality option for clubs in Spain and across Europe.
