How do you improve the finest team in world football? How do you enhance a squad as decorated as Barcelona’s?

You target a specific need and address it.

Last summer Barcelona signed just two players. Versatile Cameroon international Alex Song was acquired from Arsenal to boost depth in both midfield and defense; Spain’s Jordi Alba was purchased from Valencia to fill a very obvious hole at left-back.

Song has been used exactly as intended—sparingly, when a spot opens up in the starting 11—while Jordi Alba has entrenched his reputation as one of the best full-backs in the world.

Barcelona rarely spend foolishly in the transfer market, and they’ll likely use whatever funds are made available on just a few players again this July and August.

But which players will they be? Which players could actually be meaningful additions to a team that will win La Liga in two months’ time and may also lift another European Cup as well?

The following slides reveal five players who could make a difference for Barcelona, whether coming right into the lineup or serving some time in the rotation before replacing an aging defender, midfielder or forward.

Let’s get to it.
