Barca Identify Midfield Star As No. 1 Target?

FC Barcelona Identify Midfield Star As No. 1 Target?

By Kurt Buckerfield - Mar 20, 2017 08:00 PM @KurtLaduma

FC Barcelona have reportedly identified the superstar they will attempt to sign to solve their current midfield problems.

Yaya's Agent Talks Up Man Utd Move

Liverpool playmaker Philippe Coutinho has been heavily linked with Barca in recent seasons, but it has now been reported that the Catalans see him as the solution to their problems in the middle of the park.

According to the Daily Mirror, the Spanish club are concerned with the deterioration of their midfield, with Andres Iniesta ageing, and the likes of Ivan Rakitic and Sergio Busquets unable to find their best form.

Although Coutinho is a not an out-and-out central midfielder, Barca reportedly believe he could play down the middle in the hopes of strengthening the trio that plays behind the Catalan club's attack force of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar.

Barca are reportedly also eyeing Paris Saint-Germain star Marco Verratti as they search for a long-term replacement for Iniesta.

@Golden Boots- RaFinha n Sergi Roberto are good squad player's that's it or bits n pieces of u like , but when you lose Xavi n Iniesta whose not gettin any younger, so u must plan ahead, when Xavi left barca was left with a huge whole which hasn't been filled to date, so when you lose, A wow player you need to replace him with a wow player. So that barca can mantain that high level. Coutinho n veratti are wow player's..with barca DNA.

Sergi Roberto and Rafinha Alcantara can play the midfield perfectly, why are we chasing after midfielders when we can produce the best in business?

If Liverpool let coutinho go I'll see them as a team that lack ambition to succeed in Euro pe, how can you let your so called best players go as they did it to Suarez, with the kind of manager they have klopp it's just matter of time before they conquer Europe. It's up to them to continue to be an average team
