Barcelona hope to find English buyers for three midfielders

Barcelona are hoping to find English buyers for three of their midfielders this week.

Mundo Deportivo says Barca are anxiously seeking to offload players from their overloaded midfield, with England the best route.

Ivan Rakitic, Arturo Vidal and Rafinha are all up for sale, as is Philippe Coutinho, though his agent Kia Joorabchian said a Premier League return was unlikely given his loyalty to former club Liverpool.

Rakitic is interesting Everton and Manchester United, with the Croatia international the most likely to leave.

The Premier League's transfer deadline falls on August 8 at 5pm.
