Whether they play or not, Saturday's Copa del Rey final against Valencia will be the final game in Barcelona colours for up to nine players. The list of possible exits features Cillessen, Murillo, Vermaelen, Umtiti, Rafinha, Rakitic, Malcom, Coutinho and Boateng, although some are more likely to leave than others.

CILLESSEN

The Dutch goalkeeper should start the final but he's told Barça of his plans to leave. He wants to play more regularly and that's not possible with Marc-Andre ter Stegen at the club. Benfica is his most likely destination and the Catalans want close to 25 million euros. He will bid farewell against Valencia after three years as a brilliant backup. 

MURILLO

It's almost impossible to imagine the Colombian saying goodbye on the pitch this weekend in the final against 'his' Valencia. He is on loan from Los Che but the only question Barça fans are asking is: why was he signed in January? 

VERMAELEN

Thomas is out of contract and won't renew. He played his last 90 minutes against Celta Vigo with the league won and will leave Camp Nou with the general sensation that injuries have not served him well. However, there have been good moments. Last season, for example, he had a good run of two months as a regular in the side and he played very well. 

UMTITI

The Frenchman has lost his place to Lenglet and the possible arrival of De Ligt opens the exit door. Even though he's warned he wants to stay, Barça will listen to offers after a season which has seen him struggle with a knee problem. 

RAFINHA

The midfielder has struggled with injuries again and could leave this summer: on loan or sold. After various years of uncertainty, it could be the summer that the Rafinha-Barça link finally breaks. 

RAKITIC

It doesn't look like the Croatian will leave Barça, especially with Valverde demanding he stays. However, it can also not be ruled out, given the club would listen to interesting offers. And there is no shortage of interest in the midfielder. 

MALCOM

His first season at Barça has had its moments of ostracism but it's also had its highs. The Brazilian has been a good back up player at times but has been under-used. The player wants to be a success at Camp Nou but is aware a lack of minutes is a problem. A transfer would allow him to play regularly again. 

COUTINHO

The most expensive signing in Barça's history has one foot out of the club. Performances have not been good enough and there's no feeling with the fans. His dip has been alarming after a bright start and the club are keen to sell if they can recover some of their investment. His sale seems inevitable. 

BOATENG

No one can understand his loan. Without any major role, Prince will leave Barça in the summer and return to Sassuolo. He has played 303 minutes of football. Just over three complete games.
