Stamford Bridge defender one of six players in the frame to replace Carles Puyol in Catalonia.
Carles Puyol officially hung up his boots earlier this month, bringing to an end his illustrious playing career.
He only ever played for one club, FC Barcelona, winning six La Liga titles, two Copa del Reys, three Champions Leagues and two FIFA Club World Cups with the Catalan giants.
Puyol’s retirement will leave a huge hole at the Camp Nou. We look at the six players that could potentially replace him, according to Mundo Deportivo.
Vincent Kompany – Manchester City
Belgium captain Kompany certainly has the footballing and leadership skills required to replace Puyol. However, Barcelona have little to no chance of prizing away from the Etihad Stadium.
