Spanish news publication Marca reports that Barcelona will put defender Marc Bartra on the transfer list this summer, with Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool and Manchester United all reportedly interested in the Spanish international centre-back.
Bartra has made just 13 appearances for the Catalans this term, and Marca claim that he will be allowed to leave. The newspaper also reports that Barca will, however, extend the 25-year-old's contract, but keep the £12 million release clause that he currently has inserted in his deal.
All three English clubs linked to the Spaniard would seem like ideal fits, although it would be a hard task for Bartra to dislodge Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld from the starting line-up at White Hart Lane.
Manchester United have the second best defensive record in the Premier eague behind Spurs, and seem to have a settled centre-back partnership now, with Daley Blind and Chris Smalling teaming up to great effect.
Perhaps the best suited destination for Bartra would be Anfield. Out of the three interested parties, Liverpool seem to be the club with the most need for the Spaniard.
The central defensive position is an area that manager Jürgen Klopp will have to address over the summer. Kolo Touré and Martin Škrtel are both the wrong side of 30, while Mamadou Sakho has had his much publicised off-field troubles to deal with, and who knows how long he will be out for.
Bartra, at 25, would represent fantastic business, if the reported release clause is correct. He is calm in possession and has a great range of passing for a defender, which suits the Liverpool style of play, and he would certainly be a fantastic addition should any kind of move come to fruition.
At a relatively young age, the Spaniard has already won four La Liga titles, two Copa del Reys, two Champions Leagues, a Uefa Super Cup, and a FIFA Club World Cup.
