Pjanic and Benatia to Barca?

Roma pair Miralem Pjanic and Mehdi Benatia have been mentioned as possible transfer targets for Barcelona this summer.

Mundo Deportivo has reported that midfielder Pjanic and centre-back Benatia feature prominently in the club’s thoughts for the next transfer window.

Pjanic has been linked with a move to Camp Nou before and has spoken publically of the interest, revealing that he is aware Barca are monitoring his performances.

A fee of €20m has been mooted for the 23-year-old Bosnia-Herzegovina international, although Roma are understood to be reluctant to part with the player.

Benatia is also said to be a long-term target of La Blaugrana, dating back to his days as an Udinese player.

The 26-year-old is valued a little lower than Pjanic, at €18m, and is also rumoured to be a target of Manchester United, who are in the market for a replacement for Inter-bound Nemanja Vidic.

Barca are first said to have approached Benatia in 2011.
