Barcelona Want Kompany To Replace Puyol

Manchester City's defensive line is set to be divided in the summer.
Vincent Kompany is reportedly on Barcelona's radar, according to the Mirror.
Although the Belgian signed a new six-year deal with City last summer, it is believed Barca would be prepared to pay as much as £20 million for the defender as they look to replace 34-year-old Carles Puyol.
Puyol is believed to be nearing the twilight of his career and Kompany, along with Borussia Dortmund's Mats Hummels and Chelsea's David Luiz, has been touted as a long-term successor.
