1X2 predictions Barcelona is looking to the Premier League to strengthen the defense
Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman is determined to strengthen the team at all costs with a new central defender in January, writes `Mundo Deportivo`. It`s no secret that the main goal of the coach is to take Eric Garcia from Manchester City, but for now the `Citizens` refuse to let him go, despite the player`s contract expires in the summer, when he can leave as a free agent. The Camp Nou will make a new attempt to get their teenager back, but the club also has back-up options if their attempts are unsuccessful. These are two other defenders from the Premier League - Shkodran Mustafi from Arsenal and Antonio Rudiger from Chelsea. Both Germans currently have reserve status in their teams. Mustafi mainly gets chances in the Europa League, while Rudiger has been anchored on the bench since the beginning of the season and has recorded only one match so far. This means that Barca should not have a problem in the negotiations for attracting either of them at a rather low price. Kuman believes they can be useful with their experience and give him more options for rotating the lineup. According to other information, at the `Camp Nou` they are considering the option to return Jean-Claire Todibo from Benfica. The French defender is currently on loan to Lush, but has not yet recorded a single match adviced by 1x2footballtips for Lisbon. It seems that the Portuguese will not interfere if the Catalans want to terminate the lease early.
