Frenkie de Jong will land shortly and he was supposed to be followed by Matthijs de Ligt and Atletico Madrid's Antoine Griezmann.

Philippe Coutinho, Ivan Rakitic and Samuel Umtiti were rumoured to be high-profile players that would be sold to finance the deals.

But, it seems Barca are looking elsewhere now after trying to get the two transfers over the line.

According to a tweet by journalist Gerard Romero last night, Barca are considering Plan Bs for both Griezmann and De Ligt.

The Catalan side feel the demands for De Ligt from his agent Mino Raiola are simply too much.

They've also been put off by bids from both Bayern Munich and Manchester United.

As for Griezmann, the club appears to have lost interest in the French superstar and are now in advanced talks to sign a new, versatile attacker.

Who it could be is another mystery entirely, with so many forwards currently on the market.

Valencia forward Rodrigo Moreno seemed to hint on Instagram that he will be departing Los Che in the summer.

He would surely be a far cheaper option than Griezmann.

Other more young options on the market are Joao Felix, Luka Jovic and Nicolas Pepe.
