Former Barcelona midfielder Deco admits he would sign Luka Modric from rivals Real Madrid if he was in charge of the Camp Nou giants.
The two La Liga heavyweights will lock horns at the Camp Nou on Saturday and Deco, who spent four years at Barca during his playing career, has offered his thoughts on which Real Madrid player would fit in at the Camp Nou.
Speaking to Catalan newspaper Ara, he said: “I would sign [Luka] Modric for Barca because his way of playing fits with the style that exists at Barca. He is a footballer who looks like Iniesta and Xavi due to his way of playing, he has a similar style.
“The forwards (Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale) would not have a place at Barca.”
