Sky Sports Spanish football experts Guillem Balague and Terry Gibson feel the Barcelona squad needs freshening up sooner rather than later. Charles Barkley Jersey . The Catalan side scraped past Real Betis over the weekend to remain top of La Liga with two games to play but are level on points with Atletico Madrid with Real one point adrift.Manager Luis Enrique has come under a lot of criticism for his teams poor form that saw them blow a 10 point lead in the league and crash out of the Champions League. Speaking on the La Liga Weekly Podcast, Balague feels the squad is in need of freshening up if they are to maintain their dominance of Spain and Europe over the next few years. Its been a while since Barcelona produced their own players such as Andres Iniesta, Xavi and Carles Puyol. Terry Gibson The problems of Barcelona seem to be physical first of all but it goes beyond the physical, Balague said.Why doesnt he trust the people on the bench? Who bought those players? Are Arda Turan and Aleix Vidal his choices? Its something that could carry on to next season. Barcelona just feel its a team in need of fresh blood. Watch how Lionel Messi helped Barcelona beat Real Betis on Saturday Gibson is also concerned about how the famous La Masia academy has dried up producing players that are good enough to play in the Nou Camp.The production line of the young players developing and given their chance in the first team isnt there as much, Gibson insists. Sergi Roberto and Rafinha are probably the only two. Luis Enrique could see his job in question if Barcelona do not win La Liga Its been a while since Barcelona produced their own players such as Andres Iniesta, Xavi and Carles Puyol. There are lots of Barcelona youngsters dotted around the place performing well at other clubs. Its still questionable whether they would be good enough for Barcelona but it is an issue they are going to have to address.This group of players can go again next season - they are not past it yet - but it does need to keep an eye on in the long term. Could their be a summer clear out at the Nou Camp? However, Gibson insists Enrique may not even be around in the summer to undertake the revamp, especially if Barcelona bottle the chance to win La Liga and the Copa del Rey final against Sevilla.A month ago they were in the running for everything, Gibson said. They were big favourites to win the league, they were big favourites to win the Champions League and the Copa del Rey final is still to come.It will be interesting to see how he is judged. They could still win the Copa del Rey and will finish in the top three in La Liga and if they throw it away in those circumstances - but that is the pressure of being the Barcelona manager.

MIAMI -- LeBron James delivered his message loud and clear, without actually saying a word. Hes willing to leave Miami, if thats what it will take to win more championships. And what happens next will likely be up to not just the Heat, but Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh as well. Through his agent, James informed the Heat on Tuesday that he has decided to opt out of the final two years of his contract, a move that means he becomes a free agent on July 1. He will be able to sign with any team, including Miami, and Heat President Pat Riley said he "fully expected" James to take advantage of his early termination option. "We look forward to sitting down with LeBron and his representatives and talking about our future together," Riley said. The Heat have been preparing for this for some time. James, Wade and Bosh all got six-year contracts when they teamed up in Miami in July 2010, the last time free agency was accompanied by the sort of frenzy that will envelop the league over the next few weeks. But each of those deals came with options to leave either this summer or in 2015, in part to allow both the players and the team to have financial flexibility. James -- who averaged 27.1 points this past season -- was owed $42.7 million for the next two seasons, though that seems irrelevant in the sense that hell be getting plenty of money from the Heat or someone else for years to come. If he stays with Miami, he could sign a deal that would give the team room to manoeuvr within the structures of the salary cap and luxury-tax threshold. So could Wade and Bosh, if they choose to opt out as well -- and if both do, Miami would potentially have plenty of cash to spend on roster upgrades. Neither has announced their plans, though both have previously said they want to remain in Miami. "No news here yet," Wade said Tuesday. James stayed silent as well, with agent Rich Paul being the one who informed the Heat of the four-time NBA MVPs plan. But last week, while still dealing with the sting of losing the NBA Finals to San Antonio, James expressed how enticing the idea of flexibility is to him. "Being able to have flexibility as a professional, anyone, thats what we all would like," James said last week. Wilt Chamberlain Jersey. "Thats in any sport, for a football player, a baseball player, a basketball player, to have flexibility and be able to control your future or your present. I have a position to be able to do that. ... Theres a lot of times that youre not in control of your future as a professional." Hes in control now. He turns 30 next season. He might just be entering his prime. James said last week that he, Wade and Bosh owed it to one another to have a conversation before deciding where to play going forward. It is unclear if those discussions have taken place. And while James opting out was largely expected, the ripple effect of the move was seen all over the sports world. The NFL, on its Twitter account, posted a photo of James dunking a football over the crossbar at the stadium his beloved Dallas Cowboys call home, light-heartedly asking him if he wanted to pass some time in a training camp while making his decision. And U.S. Soccer, also in a tweet, said it has a new team for him -- then attached a photo of mens national team jersey bearing James name and No. 6. Even hockey got into the act. "You know, youd be 6-10 on skates," someone posted to the Carolina Hurricanes Twitter account, in a message to James. For now, all that seems certain is James sticking to basketball. What team, thats now up for debate. Hes been with the Heat four seasons, been to the NBA Finals in each of those years, winning two championships and winning more games than any other team over that span. He seems to have largely recovered from the hit his image took when he left Cleveland for Miami in 2010, often saying hes much happier now as a person than he was then. Plus, his life has changed. He married longtime girlfriend Savannah Brinson last year, and the couple is expecting their third child. "Players have a right to free agency and when they have these opportunities, the right to explore their options," Riley said. "The last four seasons have been historic and LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and Erik Spoelstra have led the Miami Heat to one of the most unprecedented runs in the history of the NBA."
