Barcelona get themselves flush with 222 million euros, yet confronted with supplanting one of the world's best players after Neymar's turn to Paris Saint-Germain crushed the world exchange record.
The Catalans' under weight load up don't have much time to respond with the exchange window set to close on 31 August. Be that as it may, they can in any case rely on a standout amongst the most gifted squads on the planet drove by any semblance of Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez.
Here, we take a gander at what Barca must do to attempt and make strides on biting adversaries and Spanish and European champions Real Madrid.
Dodge Figo-esque emergency
Barca will languish on the field over Neymar's nonappearance, however observing one of their prized resources grabbed away to a mediocre alliance is likewise a gigantic hit to Barca's eminence and an indication of days they thought were a distant memory.
The Catalans used to battle to clutch star names, especially when Madrid's wealth came calling. Luis Milla, Michael Laudrup and most broadly Luis Figo crossed Spanish football's incredible partition.
At the point when Figo left in comparative conditions to Neymar as Madrid paid his buyout provision for a world record charge in 2000, it amazed Barca on the contribute and the meeting room. The cash was squandered and they didn't win a noteworthy trophy for five seasons.
At that point came Messi and a large group of world class home-developed abilities to drive Barca to their best ever period, winning eight La Liga titles and four Champions Leagues titles in the previous 12 years.
In the a long time since Figo left Barca have turned into a brand and one of the wealthiest clubs on the planet, in addition to regardless they have Messi. All of which ought to guarantee the decrepit period that took after Figo's takeoff isn't rehashed.
The greatest test for Barca president Josep Maria Bartomeu is presently how much trade to sprinkle out the following a month, particularly following two years in which they have to a great extent overpaid for little return in the exchange advertise on any semblance of Andre Gomes, Paco Alcacer and Arda Turan.
There will be weight for the Catalans to reassert themselves via finding a marquee marking with Phillippe Coutinho, Ousmane Dembele, Paulo Dybala and Kylian Mbappe all connected.
Be that as it may, finding a like for like trade for Neymar will be incomprehensible –that is the reason he got a charge more than twofold the past exchange record.
In light of that Barca might be better put over the long haul to spare some cash for future windows on the off chance that they are not to wind up poorer on the field and no happier fiscally from Neymar's turn.
Give youth a possibility
Most worryingly for Barca's future is that Neymar has gone in his prime at 25, deserting a maturing squad.
Messi and Suarez are both 30, as is protective pioneer Gerard Pique, while commander Andres Iniesta is 34 and out of agreement toward the finish of the season.
One of the reactions of Barca's advancement in late seasons since Pep Guardiola's takeoff as mentor in 2012 has been that alumni from the club's once celebrated around the world La Masia foundation have not been given a possibility as the club swung to star signings, for example, Suarez and Neymar.
"Barcelona have been dozing," Barca legend Xavi told the Tactical Room a month ago. "They need to reinforce the adolescent institute."
Needing new blood, Barca could do with the institute that created Messi, Xavi and Iniesta coming great yet again.
In Neymar's withdrawing words: "I made a trio with Messi and Suarez that impacted the world forever. Vanquished everything a competitor can prevail."
For a long time the "MSN" shaped an exciting bleeding edge ostensibly unrivaled in football history. In 110 matches together, they scored a joined 228 objectives.
However, by building the group around three advances, different parts of the group battled, most prominently midfield which had been their quality in the grand Guardiola years.
The "MSN" is no more, however in the event that Barca utilize the Neymar assets to strengthen their midfield to move down the capability still gave by Messi and Suarez, they will remain a drive to fear in La Liga and the Champions League
