Barcelona planning to add Valencia’s Mathieu and Ashley Cole to defensive options [Mundo Deportivo]
- June 19, 2014
New Barcelona manager Luis Enrique knows that he has to reinforce the defence of the Catalan giants but the two names rumoured to be close to making a move to the club aren’t obvious ones.
Valencia centre-half Mathieu has apparently got a fan in Enrique, according to Mundo Deportivo. The big defender is to be chatted about in a meeting between Valencia and Barcelona officials.
One where the name Cristian Tello could also come up, with Valencia looking to acquire the forward on loan.
Another name linked with Barca is Ashley Cole, the English left-back who has just been released by Chelsea. Cole apparently has a queue of clubs lining up to sign him and old manager Ancelotti may get the nod if he comes to try to persuade his old charge to play for Real Madrid.
