Lazio defender interesting Barcelona

According to Romanian publication Libertatea, Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola is showing an interest in Lazio defender Stefan Radu, who has also been linked with moves to Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain.

The 24-year-old Romanian international is a central defender who can also operate at left-back and is already being mentioned in the same breath as compatriot Cristian Chivu, who has played in Italy since 2003 with Roma and Inter Milan.

Radu has made 73 appearances for the Biancazzurri since his €3.5m signing from Dinamo Bucharest in June, 2008 after initially impressing on a loan deal. His form since then has been such that he has attracted the attention of several of the big European clubs including Barcelona, who would see him as a natural replacement for 32-year-old Eric Abidal, with the Frenchman yet to put his name to a new contract.
