Cristian Tello has advised Marc Bartra to leave Barcelona and would welcome him at his new club Fiorentina.
Tello has signed for the Italians on loan for the rest of the season after his time at Porto was cut short, and was asked at his presentation about Bartra, also linked with La Viola.
“I often speak with him, he’s a friend of mine but he hasn’t spoken about the idea of Fiorentina,” Tello revealed, Football Italia reports.
“He complimented me for arriving at Fiorentina, I think he’s a top player who would be helpful to Fiorentina.
“I think Barta is someone who needs to play and feel important to the team. I think it’s a step he should take for his career.”
