Marc Bartra set to stay at Barcelona

Barcelona defender Marc Bartra has sent a cryptic tweet as rumours regarding his long term future in the game continue to rumble on.

As reported by Sport, the 24-year-old, who has failed to hold down a regular role at the Nou Camp over the last few years, is wanted by numerous clubs, with as many as three clubs ready to pay his €12 million release clause. 

There has certainly been interest from England in recent time, with the Daily Mail having recently revealed that the duo of Liverpool and Tottenham, as well as Portuguese outfit Porto, are ready to make a move for the player's services in the near future. 

It's uncertain, however, as to whether he will look to move on in the upcoming window, with the same report from Sport suggesting that his agent will meet with the Catalan club today. 

His recent tweet, though, may well be interpreted in a number of different ways...


"No force will knock down your dreams, because they feed on your own light, your own passion..."

There's no doubt about it, Bartra has clearly been desperate to force himself into Luis Enrique's plans, but it certainly hasn't been easy for him over the course of the last 12-months or so. 

In truth, as he approaches the prime of his career, there's no point in sitting on the bench for Barcelona, when he could be starring week in, week out for another top side. Ultimately, it may well be time for Bartra to make a sacrifice and depart the club, as he goes about getting his career back on track. 

Liverpool in need

Perhaps, then, Bartra should consider a move to Anfield - if Brendan Rodgers and Co. are ready to press ahead with a move. 

At the end of the day, Liverpool are in need of improvement in their back-line despite some improvements last term. A 6-1 hammering at the hands of Stoke City certainly gave the Reds hierarchy something to think about it, so perhaps this would be a sensible move. 

They'd be signing a player who has trained alongside the likes of Lionel Messi and Neymar over the last couple of years, and he will have something to prove. At 24 and available for just €12m, it seems a risk worth taking for Liverpool.

If the Reds are serious about returning to Europe's elite competition sooner rather than later, then they must improve their back-line immediately. It could be a good move all round, so don't rule it out just yet.
