FC Barcelona 2014/15 Depth Chart

FC Barcelona's squad is finally shaping up. Unless the Blaugrana signs Juan Cuadrado, which now looks a bit unlikely, the team's transfer efforts have finished, and seven new additions to the squad have been made.

Here's a quick look at Barça's depth chart for next season.

Goalkeepers: Marc-Andre Ter Stegen, Claudio Bravo, Jordi Masip

Defenders: Dani Alves, Martín Montoya, Gerard Piqué, Marc Bartra, Jeremy Mathieu, Jordí Alba, Adriano Correia

Midfielders: Javier Mascherano, Sergio Busquets, Alexandre Song, Xavi Hernández, Ivan Rakitic, Sergi Roberto, Andrés Iniesta, Rafinha Alcântara

Forwards: Lionel Messi, Luis Suárez, Neymar Jr., Pedro Rodríguez, Gerard Deulofeu, Ibrahim Afellay

That's a 24-men roster. It's worh noting that Barça B players like Halilovic, Adama Traoré and Dongou might get some playing time, since new club manager Luis Enrique said that developing youngsters is a priority for his coaching tenure at Barça.

Possible Starting XI (4-3-3): Ter Stegen; Alves, Piqué, Mathieu, Alba; Busquets, Rakitic, Iniesta; Suárez, Messi, Neymar

Possible XI (Reserves): Bravo; Montoya, Bartra, Mascherano, Adriano; Song, Xavi, Rafinha; Afellay, Pedro, Deulofeu

Until mid-September, when Neymar comes back, and November, when Suárez will join the trio and the whole Holy Trinity will be cleared to compete, Deulofeu and Pedro will probably play alongside Messi.

What do you think, Blaugranes? Is this a deep enough squad to compete for championships or does it need more improvement?
