Fresh from their teams 4-0 World Club Cup final victory over Brazilian side Santos, Barcelona fans' thoughts are slowly turning to the disappointment of learning that Spanish striker David Villa will miss between 4-6 months of football following his fractured tibia.
Reports in the press recently suggested that Villa was unhappy at the club, and he had been dropped to the bench by Barca manager Pep Guardiola.
Despite his seemingly disposable status to Barcelona, there's no doubt that losing a player of his quality is bad news for any team.
Barcelona are a financially well-off club in comparison to many others in world football, and their recent European successes have ensured they are a highly-desirable team to play for.
After all, they can boast multiple world-class players in almost every position.
With the January transfer window just around the corner, a host of clubs will be praying that the Catalan giants don't come calling for their star players.
Here we take a look at who has been linked to the club of late.
