Reports: FC Barcelona Identify Andres Iniesta Replacement

Spanish giants FC Barcelona have reportedly identified the man they want to bring in replace the legendary Andres Iniesta, who will leave the Catalans at the end of the season.

According to Sky Sports, Napoli midfielder Jorginho is the player the Blaugrana are consider bringing in following Iniesta's imminent exit.

The player has impressed in Serie A this season, and has also been watched by Manchester City and Manchester United.

The Blaugrana are believed to see the player as someone who could strengthen the team's midfield, and being an Italy international, Jorginho would not take up a non-European place in the squad.

Napoli reportedly value the player at €40 million (R586 million), but if more than one club comes in for him, it could go down to who bids highest for the player.

Jorginho would undoubtedly bring stability to Barca's midfield post-Iniesta, with players like Andre Gomes and Denis Suarez not yet doing enough to secure a spot in the starting XI.

I know a lot of Barcelona fans admired Jorginho last czen and he was the favorite after Veratti, have not seen much of him but he seems like a good player who can fit easily at Barca, the only question is where would he play?
