Philippe Coutinho is also believed to have no future at Barca under Xavi after disappointing training ground form, while La Masia graduate, Oscar Mingueza is another to be transfer-listed.

Sergino Dest will be encouraged to move on next month, as veteran fullback Daniel Alves is registered by Barca for the second half of the season.
