Barcelona wants a creative midfielder that can replace the ageing Iniesta and underwhelming Arda Turan.

And Diario Gol says Sanches, driven by super-agent Jorge Mendes, is hoping to secure a move to the Nou Camp for the underperforming Bayern Munich star.

Sanches will be a cheaper buy for Barcelona when compare to the price they will cough out for the likes of Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho and Paris St-Germain’s Marco Verratti considering the low funds at the club available for spending.

Marco Verratti has reportedly said he will prefer a move to the Bernabeu as he likes the project of Zinedine Zidane to that of Barcelona.

Barcelona is also set to sign Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin who went through the youth ranks at the Nou Camp.
