Melo is still an option to strengthen midfield

Catalan sports paper El Mundo Deportivo claims that Barcelona is still monitoring the situation of Fiorentina defensive midfielder and Brazilian international Felipe Melo (25).

Barcelona wants to sign a midfielder this summer and Melo is, besides Liverpool player Javier Mascherano and AS Roma player Daniele De Rossi, the third name on the list (read more here).

Inter, Juventus, Arsenal, Manchester City and Real Madrid would also be interested in melo, whose contract with Fiorentina expires in 2012 and whose transfer fee would at least be 20 million euro°.

would he cost less than hernanes? he has had liga experience with almeria under emery...would most likely be used as a sub for, primarily, xavi but also toure/busquets i think. may want to start though.

I really like Melo. His passning should be good enough for Barcelonas midfield. I think he could be a good choice if the first alternatives are impossible.

Due to very good Confederations cup games, I think Melo would cost at least 30 mil €. Fiorentina won't let him go easily as they are on verge on building a great squad and in few years should give a gd challenge on Scudetto if they continue on this course.
