Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola has reportedly advised FC Barcelona president to recruit Brazilian right-winger Antony.
Since his arrival on the Catalan bench, Xavi is activating behind the scenes to attract reinforcements in the upcoming transfer market. In search of an offensive rookie to replace Sergio Aguero and breathe new life into the Barcelona team, the management has been multiplying the avenues for a few weeks. According to the information of El Nacional, the FC Barcelona could look at the profile of the Brazilian international of Ajax Amsterdam, Antony.
The name of the Sao Paulo-trained striker was reportedly whispered to Joan Laporta by his friend and former Barca coach Pep Guardiola. The latter would be convinced of the merits of such a recruitment. If the track looks attractive on paper, the task looks very complicated in reality. In the grip of great financial difficulties, the Spanish team will have to pay no less than 40 million euros to convince the Dutch club.
