Pjanic an option for Barcelona

Today’s rumors start with Mundo Deportivo who reckon Barcelona are seriously considering a move for Miralem Pjanic now that Antoine Griezmann is not coming.

Barcelona are going to really focus on strengthening their midfield and want Pjanic, and De Jong and Arthur, and the Juventus man is said to be keen on a move to Barca.

However, there is a bit of concern that Pjanic is wanted by other teams which could drive up his price.

Thiago will cost Barca €70m

Over at Marca they reckon that Barcelona will have to splash out a whopping €70 million if they are to bring Thiago back to the Camp Nou.

Lucas Digne could also be used as part of the deal, and the decision on whether to sign Thiago or not will be one of Eric Abidal’s first in his new job.

Barcelona’s players would be happy to have Thiago back, and he would also be happy to return but will certainly not come cheap.

Barcelona interested in Golovin

Heading over to Italy now where Tuttosport have got it into their heads that Barcelona are just one of several clubs interested in Russia’s Aleksandr Golovin.

Golovin starred in Russia’s World Cup win over Saudi Arabia, but Juventus are also pretty keen on the youngster.

He’s likely to cost around €20m but that price could well go up if he continues to shine at the World Cup.

Cillessen to Roma?

And finally today we end with news that Jasper Cillessen could be an option for Roma who may just need a replacement for Alisson.

According to Mundo Deportivo, Monchi reckons Cillessen would be a great replacement for the Brazilian who is expected to depart this summer.

Cillessen wants to stay at the Camp Nou, but there’s a feeling that he could be tempted away with a good enough offer.
