Messi demands Barcelona buy world class midfielder: Get Coutinho or Verratti!

Barcelona ace Lionel Messi is demanding they shake up their midfield next season.

The Argentine is convinced the current options are simply not good enough and has made it clear to directors that Barca must find top drawer midfielders this summer.

Don Balon says Messi is adamant a world class midfielder must be added in the guise of PSG ace Marco Verratti or Liverpool's Philippe Coutinho.

Andre Gomes continues to struggle to convince that he can succeed Andres Iniesta, while Denis Suárez, Arda Turan and Rafinha have all faded away.

So the message from Messi is clear: Barca must rebuild their midfield this summer.
