Nobody Can Believe Barcelona Want to Sign Stoke’s Glen Johnson

Barcelona are apparently interested in signing Stoke City right-back Glen Johnson, and just about everyone on social media is scratching their head in disbelief.

The 32-year-old was once one of British football’s hottest properties, and was one of the first big-money signings at Chelsea during the Roman Abramovich era.

But after spells at Stamford Bridge, Portsmouth and Liverpool, Johnson would probably be expecting to see out his playing days at the Britannia Stadium – not the Nou Camp.

However, it is being reported by Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo that Barca boss Luis Enrique is eyeing a low-cost right-back, and Johnson’s experience of playing in the Premier League and Champions League makes him ideal.

The defender was recently called-up to the England squad for the 2018 World Cup qualifiers against Malta and Slovenia – but surely there’s no way he’ll end up in the same team as Messi and Neymar?!
