"Pjanic"? It would be interesting, but Barça must focus on the present"

The former Barcelona player Rivaldo referred to the exchange between Arthur and Pjanic as an "interesting operation", although he recommended Barça to forget about the transfers and focus on the present. In addition, he offered a solution to Coutinho.

Rivaldo, in his habitual commentaries as an ambassador of 'Betfair', recommended Barça not to focus on reinforcements and to pay more attention in the resumption of the different championships. "I read rumours that Barcelona could be interested in Pjanic. And yes, I think he's a great player, but I think the club should focus more on the present and what's left of playing in the league," he said.

"There will be time to talk about transfers. Especially when you have to let go before bringing in new faces so as not to create too big a squad that would leave some players without space, he insisted.

In any case, Rivaldo admitted that the exchange Pjanic-Arthur would be "interesting". "Arthur would be a great addition to Juventus because he's a world-class player who can play all over the world. I insist, I think he should stay at Barcelona, because he's young and has just arrived," reaffirmed the former Barça player. 

 

What about Coutinho?
Speaking of the imminent return from the Bundesliga, Rivaldo also assessed the situation of Coutinho, his compatriot on loan from FC Barcelona to Bayern Munich. The playmaker will not be able to return due to a new injury. "Sometimes when things go wrong for you, everything keeps going wrong."

"It must be very frustrating for him to get injured just when he could return and all eyes were going to be on him and his competition. It would have been an ideal time to shine and even convince Barcelona not to sell him out," continued the 1999 Ballon d'Or winner.

"Teams who are interested in Coutinho, such as Chelsea, should not give up on him because of this injury. But if it happened, maybe he could stay at Barcelona," added Rivaldo, who suggested to his compatriot some formula to change the Blaugrana management's mind.

"Now many clubs are being forced to cut back because of the current crisis. If it's the player who takes the first step it will be seen as the attitude of someone interested in staying, and that could convince the management to reconsider," he continued.
