$21bn!

Bloomberg News reports that's the additional market value analysts who track the bank's shares expect him to create over the next 12 months.

At 55%, the gap between the lender's current share price and the level most analysts expect to hit in a year's time is the biggest of all European banks, according to Bloomberg Intelligence. Goldman Sachs goes even further: analysts there think Barclays's stock may almost double in the next year.
