Big eight set for Barcelona clearout

Barcelona are set to perform a major clearout at the end of this season.

Even if they pip Real Madrid for the title this weekend, Barca management are agreed that a major overhaul of coach Frank Rijkaard's squad is required this summer.

DiarioSport says those set to be offered around Europe include Santi Ezquerro, Eidur Gudjohnsen, Thiago Motta, Gio van Bronckhorst, Rafael Marquez, Sylvinho, Edmilson and Lilian Thuram.
