The Dutch pundit is a big fan of the Belgian.
"If Barcelona needed a defender, Kompany certainly comes into the picture," he told Voetbalkrant.com. "He would not look out of place at Camp Nou and it would also be formidable for the Belgian fans, hey?
"He belongs in the top three of the best defenders in the world. So of course you can use him at Barça."
But Boskamp adds: "I honestly do not think he will ever leave Manchester City. His wife is from there, he has the run of a lot of things, and besides, he could not get any better financially than where he is now.
"They make their toilet rolls from money at clubs like that!"
