With the summer additions of Frenkie de Jong, and Antoine Griezmann it is hard to see how Barcelona are going to be any weaker than last season even if some of the core squad are a year older. There is also the issue of a return to the Camp Nou for Neymar after his world record transfer to PSG two years ago.
