Barca target Chelsea’s Matic?

Barcelona could make a move for Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic this summer in a move to bolster their squad, say reports.

The Catalans fear they will miss out on PSG maestro Marco Verratti while they are keen on adding to their midfield due to Andres Iniesta’s age and fitness problems alongside concerns over the form of Sergio Busquets.

The Daily Express report the Blaugrana are now targeting the Serbian, who has enjoyed a resurgence in form this season under Antonio Conte and has forged a strong midfield partnership with N’Golo Kante.

Barca technical director Robert Fernandez is a big fan of Matic’s, says the report, while French-based trio Maxime Lopez (Marseille), Bernardo Silva (Monaco) and Corentin Tolisso (Lyon) are other potential targets for the position.
