Marc-Andre Ter Stegen
He is a German footballer who joined Barcelona in 2014 and made his debut in 2012 for his national side. He also won 3 trophies with Barcelona in his first season.
He was also the part of his national side when Germany reached the semi-finals of Euro 2016. He signed a five -year contract with Barcelona until 2019 and in 2017 he again signed a new contract with Barcelona until 2022.
Nelson Semedo, Gerard Pique, Samuel Umtiti and Jordi Alba
There should not be any concerns regarding the defence, it looks unbeatable with the two World Cup winners and a one time Euro Cup winner. Both Gerard Pique and Samuel Umtiti were the part of their national side Spain (2010) and France (2018) respectively.
Pique who also won the 2012 Euro Cup title for Spain along with Jordi Alba is the most experienced among the defenders in the club.
