An FC Barcelona transfer target, who is considered to be one of Europe's leading midfielders, has reportedly made bizarre demands to the Spanish giants.
The Catalan club has reportedly been interested in Paris Saint-Germain's Marco Verratti for a few seasons now, and new reports suggest that the player has told them what it will take for them to lure him away from France.
According to Diario Gol, the midfielder has decided he will only join Barca if he becomes the leader of the dressing room, despite the likes of Lionel Messi, Andres Iniesta, Gerard Pique and Sergio Busquets still being at the Camp Nou.
The Italian has also reportedly insisted that he would need to become one of the team's highest earners, and be a regular in the Blaugrana's starting XI.
It is believed that if these conditions are not agreed, he will instead consider a move to Real Madrid, who have reportedly also shown interest in the player.
Barca are reportedly looking to revamp their midfield, with former Ballon d'Or runner-up Iniesta getting on in age.
Players at the Spanish club are said to be admirers of the Italian, although it will reportedly take a massive transfer fee for Barca to lure the player to Spain.
