Schar added to Barca shortlist

Barcelona have added Basel’s Fabian Schar to their list of defensive targets for the summer, according to reports.

Mundo Deportivo claim that the 22-year-old is the latest name to be added by sporting director Andoni Zubizarreta to bolster the backline.

The Blaugrana have been in the market for a centre-back for two years now, missing out on a number of targets, including Thiago Silva.

However, the paper claims that the Camp Nou outfit are determined to land a defender at the end of the season, with Schar added to a longlist.

Athletic Bilbao’s Aymeric Laporte, Inigo Martinez of Real Sociedad and Villarreal’s Mateo Musacchio have all also been linked.
