Minguella: Pjanic too old for Barcelona

Former Barcelona transfers chief Josep Maria Minguella has questioned their move for Miralem Pjanic.

Minguella believes the Juventus midfielder is too old for Barca.

He told Tuttosport: "Pjanic's an excellent player with only one flaw: age.

"Barcelona already have six players over 30 and they can't add another because competitions are long and tiring.

“Therefore, the physical factor becomes increasingly important."
