Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu says there will be changes at the club over the summer after Saturday’s Copa del Rey defeat to Valencia.

The defeat means the club end their season with just the league title to show for their efforts, and Bartomeu has now spoken about the club’s plans for the future.

“The season ends with the La Liga title. It wasn’t to be in the Copa del Rey and we keep moving forward,” he said.

”Every year new players come in. So far we have confirmed De Jong’s signing and now we will work on bringing in others and moving players on, as is normal every summer.

”Now is not the moment to do anything. There are always new signings, but now is not the moment to talk about it.”
