Ex-Real star linked with Barca


A former Real Madrid defender has been linked with a surprise move to FC Barcelona, who have been hit heavy by injuries.

Clement Lenglet is Ronald Koeman's only fit senior central defender as Gerard Pique, Samuel Umtiti and Ronald Araujo are out with injury.

Oscar Mingueza was drafted in for his first-team debut as Barcelona defeated Dynamo Kiev 4-0 in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday night.

With the January transfer window approaching, Diario AS claim former Real defender Ezequiel Garay is one of the players Barcelona are looking.

Garay could join at anytime this season as is a free agent after parting ways with fellow LaLiga outfit Valencia at the end of last season.

Another reported target for the Catalan outfit remains Manchester City defender Eric Garcia, who the club tried to sign in the previous transfer window.
