Gerard Pique: These Two Stars Want To Join FC Barcelona

By Keegan Kruger - Aug 25, 2017 04:23 PM @KeeganKruger

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.

Reports: Barca Agree R2.2bn Deal For Neymar Replacement

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."

Ex-Blaugrana Star: Barca Board Is Useless

The 30-year-old defender has made 399 appearances for Barcelona, scoring 34 goals.

Pique, there is a gang up against Barcelona. Your opponents want to make sure that Neymar is not replaced. Our Club, Barcelona, must know this and do some thing within the remaining few days of transfer window. If you delay, without spending the Neymar money, Barcelona is dead. The enemy even want to LURE Lionel Messi away to kill the moral of the player. Plead with Messi's father. Your team is still strong but the morale is low. Remember Barcelona beat Real Madrid when Neymar had four(4) match-bans in the la liga Classico. If there is determination, though, Neymar was a force to reckon with, nobody is indispensable.The team should play to show Neymar that you can do without him. You must not allow Neymar to laugh at you from PSG. If Messi had not hit the post three times would he not have scored a hat trick in match day One of the season? Barcelona is still strong. Let nobody lose hope. Was Atletico Madrid not nearly defeated by a newly promoted club? So, cheer up.
