Luis Diaz to Barcelona: What would happen if the transfer becomes a reality?
Barcelona are currently sitting in the 3rd position in the Spanish league. Xavi’s team has got all what it takes to win the league. However, if Diaz arrives at the Camp Nou, it would be a value addition to the club. The Colombian is fast, can take on multiple defenders at a time and creates runs out of nowhere. Moreover, with Robert Lewandowski as the main striker, Diaz would be able to create more goal scoring chances from the wings for the Catalans. However, it’s just a mere possibility at the moment. Both Liverpool and Luis Diaz are happy being associated with each other and there are no signs of detachment between the club and the player.
