Barça currently have 9 midfielders
The arrival of André Gomes at Barça could lead to some unexpected exit. At least this is what implied one of Ivan Rakitic's agents. Miquel Sors, who is working with the brother and agent of the Croatian player, sent a message through Twitter: "I think it is time to leave", he tweeted on Friday morning after he found out about Barça's new signing.
Creo que es hora de irse...— M.S (@MiquelSors) 22 de juliol de 2016
Sors, tried to explain himself later, replying to a journalist:
@Marsallorente en ningun momento me he referido a ninguno !!!!Simplemente x " overbooking " nada mas !!!! Encantados de estar aki !!!!— M.S (@MiquelSors) 22 de juliol de 2016
Given the number of retweets he's made, the intention of his message seems really clear.
Currently, Barça have 9 midfielders, two of which will play in defence (Sergi Roberto and Mascherano); therefore, the 7 that remain will fight for three positions: Rakitic, Busquets, Turan, Rafinha, Denis Suárez, Samper and André Gomes.
