Gerard Pique: These Two Stars Want To Join FC Barcelona
Gerard Pique has insisted there are two stars who want to join FC Barcelona, and that their actions prove they are doing everything they can to make the move happen.
The Catalan giants are currently strongly linked with Liverpool's Philippe Coutinho and Borussia Dortmund's Ousmane Dembele, and the Blaugrana stalwart thinks both players are desperate to play at the Camp Nou.
"I think players still want to join Barcelona, and they are showing that, as is the case with Coutinho and Ousmane Dembele," Pique told the Daily Mail.
"One by putting in a transfer request and the other with his actions at Dortmund. It suggests that they are both delighted with the idea of coming; they want to come."
The outspoken Spaniard also believes his club has struggled to sign players in this window because, after Neymar's exit, other teams are overcharging for their players knowing Barca have a lot of money now.
"The problem is, we sold Neymar, and the clubs know we have the money from that, and the market is the way it is," he added.
"I don't think it's because the players don't want to come, they are keen to come to Barca, but right now sign whatever player the club wants, it seems to cost more."
The 30-year-old defender has made 399 appearances for Barcelona, scoring 34 goals.
