Barcelona midfielder Andres Iniesta discussed Barcelona’s potential January signings this week. When asked about Philippe Coutinho and Yerry Mina, Iniesta made it clear that they would be great reinforcements for Barcelona.

"I think they would be two important reinforcements to the squad," he told reporters.

"If the club wants to strengthen those positions, it should be with players that can be prepared to withstand the pressure of a club like this, and they would be two big signings.

"But nothing has happened, so it's difficult."

The quotes are interesting and not that interesting at the same time. They provide interesting context to life at Barcelona, when he discusses withstanding the “pressure of a club like this”.

There’s been much discussion about Coutinho and whether he’s the right man for Barcelona, particularly due to the fact that if he does arrive, he will not come cheap.

However, Iniesta, at least seems to think the Brazilian would be a good fit for the club.
