Set to now become a free agent and available to negotiate a move to another club, Alba, 34, could find himself at the centre of a transfer tug-of-war.
Although no clubs have yet to be mentioned as having an interest in the experience Spaniard, given his vast experience of playing top European football, suitors are unlikely to be few and far between. Whether or not the 34-year-old could have a market in the Premier League, for example, remains unknown.
During his 11-year-long stay at the Nou Camp, Alba, who joined from Valencia in 2012 in a deal worth just £12m (TM), has gone on to lift 18 major trophies, including six La Liga titles and the 2015 Champions League.
