Josep Maria Bartomeu will continue until March, when the elections will take place. Setien and Abidal have been sacked. He spoke on Barca TV to the directors of Sport, Mundo Deportivo and L'Esportiu.
"Leo Messi, Ter Stegen, Lenglet, Semedo, De Jong and Griezmann," said Bartomeu, of the players whom he will not let leave Camp Nou this summer.
Semedo is the surprising name there, considering his exit links and City's interest - while Barca might move for City's Eric Garcia.
It is important that he didn't include Busquets, Sergi Roberto, Luis Suarez or Jordi Alba in that group.
