Barcelona Linked with World-Class Centre-Back

Barcelona Linked with World-Class Centre-Back

Although Barcelona are adequately covered in the centre of the defence, it hasn`t stopped media speculation implying that the club could be looking to add to their central defender contingent.

Lurking in the pages of the English tabloid publication, The Sun, is the inference that Barcelona are amongst a host of top European clubs looking at possibly acquiring the services of Jerome Boateng.

Boateng, 29-years-of-age, is currently on the books of Bayern Munich and is rated in the £50 million bracket.

But, if Boateng truly is a target for Barcelona, the club will have to fight off some stiff opposition to acquire the player with our quoted source also stating that Manchester United, Real Madrid and Manchester City are also monitoring the situation.

Indeed, it is stated that it is the latter who would be the clear favourites to sign the player if Bayern Munich decide to do business.

Boateng was on the books of the EPL champions-elect seven years ago and our former boss, Pep Guardiola is well aware of the players attributes having managed him whilst he was in charge of Bayern Munich.

However, as is always the case, we`ll keep a watchful eye out for any developments and report back as deemed appropriate.
