Andres Iniesta has revealed Barca is finding it very difficult at signing a forward who would serve as a replacement for the MSN trio–Messi, Suarez and Neymar, adding that “it’s not an easy situation” because whoever is coming, surely knows he’ll have very little playing time.

Barcelona’s quality ‘MSN’ frontline, remains the best in the world, and can only be second to Real Madrid’s ‘BCB’–Bale, Cristiano and Benzema.
Reports confirm Barca have searched and are yet to find a forward who’ll accept to sub for Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar next season.
Luciano Vietto is the latest player who reportedly rejected a mouth-watering offer from La Blaugranas. However, Iniesta understands that no player would love to sell his future for such a role.
Iniesta, 32, spoke with Marca about Barca’s current difficulties, Football Espana reports. The player adjudged by many to be the world’s best midfielder said: “[Andre Gomes and Denis Suarez] have quality. They have a common denominator: they’re young lads with the enthusiasm of making the leap for a team like Barca. They’re at the ideal club to grow.
“Given the forwards we have, [signing one] isn’t an easy situation, but I also think it’s a desirable one.
“The player who comes in will be one more and can contribute to the team with their work.
“I understand it’s not easy [to find a deputy to ‘MSN’], but I insist it’s also desirable [for the player].
“Whoever comes in has no reason to think he’ll play more or less, but that they will add their quality and talent [to the squad].”
