Barcelona chief Carles Rexach is convinced they're onto a winner with new football director Ariedo Braida.
The former AC Milan transfer guru has hit the ground running since his appointment, traveling around Europe to check on long-term transfer targets.
"His function is to scout the players we follow, to watch possible signings, know the status of each and it must be recognized that Braida or I cover the decision making on this," said Rexach.
"He has contacts everywhere and this is very important for us.
"You don't know where he's going to stop."
