Xavi Hernández has quite time being this name that arises every time that they analyse the options to future, regarding the possible candidates to relieve to Ronald Koeman in the bench of the FC Barcelona. With a big go through the To the Sadd of Qatar and wide knowledges of the team regarding style of game, principles and, surely, needs, is not a secret that would be an alternative more than striking.

Regarding this last subject and, taking into account that the defence is one of the most problematic fronts in the current diagram of the Catalan team, would not be odd that Xavi already had some names under the lupa, in pro to concretise some signing if it finishes landing again in the Camp Nou. In this sense, one of the players that more call the attention of the exfutbolista is Pau Torres, central defender that does life in the Villarreal.

This information has been develada of indirect form by Santi Cazorla, the one who at present is a member of the To the Sadd of Xavi, in an interview that the exjugador of the Arsenal offered to RAC1 and whose content was rescued by the portal Culemanía. In said statements, the midfield player gave his opinion on Pau Torres and admitted that Xavi has interested in him.

"I think that Pau Torres is a brutal player, Xavi asks me constantly by him. It is a young player, but think that it is very good. Has a big personality. Has a style very Barça and has a big vision of game", went the words of Cazorla. Incidentally, the exfutbolista of the Málaga ensured that Xavi "is prepared to train to the Barça. It knows the club perfectly and knows how go the things"

Pau Torres, what needs the Barcelona?

With 24 years of age, 1,91 metres of height and qualities like good aerial game and good exit with the balloon, Pau Torres could be one of the signings that the Barcelona needs for apuntalar his defence definitively. The difficult would arrive when observing the price of his clause of rescission, which reaches the 50 million euros and could go up to the 65 depending on his performance, what could complicate the things for the group culé.

Incidentally, Pau Torres has the quality to have the left like his skillful leg, by what would fit even more in the needs of the Barcelona. Given the wander performance that Lenglet and Umtiti, left-handed Barcelona head offices of the team, are having, the ideal would be to do without any of the two to do box and generate space in the staff, of way that the arrival of the canterano of the Villarreal of produce comfortably.
