Barcelona are targeting Borussia Dortmund's Erling Haaland, RB Leipzig standout Dani Olmo and Manchester United's Paul Pogba next summer after significantly reducing their wage bill - according to Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo.
The Catalan club have eased their financial woes somewhat after the exits of superstar names like Lionel Messi and Antoine Greizmann.
La Liga's strict wage cap meant that high-earers were unceremoniously forced out of the club, in order to comply with league rules.
With the wage bill reduced by 20 percent this summer, Mundo Deportivo are now speculating that a big transfer window is on the horizon.
Transfers will be key to any kind of revival, with the all-conquering Barcelona side of yesteryear having been firmly dismantled in recent times.
The addition of the three aftermentioned star players would come at a big price, however. Erling Haaland is expected to be the most expensive next summer, with his release clause set at £90m.
Reports also indicate that Haaland's agent, the notorious Mino Raiola, will demand wages in excess of £825,000 for the prolific forward, as well as a possible agent fee of £34m.
The 21-year-old striker is one of the most sought-after players in world football right now, meaning that even if Dortmund accept Barcelona's bid, the player could still opt to join a different superclub.
Signing Pogba and Olmo could prove to be a lot more simple, as the latter graduated from Barca's famous La Masia academy before signing for Dinamo Zagreb back in 2014.
The transfer of Pogba could also be simplified by the Frenchman's contract expiring next summer, which would allow him to join Barcelona for next to nothing - as long as he refuses a new deal from Manchester United.
