FC Barcelona have a Paris Saint-Germain midfielder as their #1 target yet again this summer, but it’s not Marco Verratti this time, according to rumor. Rather, says Albert Rogé, the player Barça is after is Adrien Rabiot.
Rogé, who writes for Diario SPORT, says Barcelona’s first two signings are planned to be Sevilla defender Clément Lenglet and Atlético Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann. Then, the team wants to confirm the signing of Arthur Melo from Grêmio. And once all that’s done, they’ll want one more midfielder.
Right now, Rabiot is the #1 choice for that role, says Rogé. Tottenham Hotspur’s Christian Eriksen has been a rumored option as well, but he is seen as an alternative only if Griezmann does not come.
