Barcelona need players who know how to move in small spaces
Many players have been linked with Barcelona in recent weeks but the club's former captain, Xavi Hernandez, who is now coaching in Qatar, has warned against signing two of them.
Xavi says neither Liverpool's Sadio Mane nor Arsenal's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang would be the right type of player to make the move to Camp Nou.
"Mane and Aubemayang can kill you in open space," Xavi said in quotes ran by The Metro. "But Barcelona need players who know how to move in small spaces.
"I am thinking about players who would adapt to Barcelona and it’s not easy to find one. Samuel Eto’o was perfect as is Luis Suarez right now."
However, the former Spain midfielder is in favour of Barça trying to bring Paris Saint-Germain's Neymar back to the club.
"Football-wise, he is among the three or five best in the world," he added. "I hope that he returns to Barcelona. I was his teammate. He would add a lot.
"He is a positive character. It would be an extraordinary signing and he could become a difference-maker."
Neymar and Inter Milan's Lautaro Martinez are the attackers Barça are most interested in signing this summer when the transfer window opens, coronavirus pending.
