Neymar, Rosell goal for Barcelon striker

Laporta would be negotiating the arrival of the new pearl of Brazilian football. Guardiola, however, has doubts about the complicated nature of the player, aged 19.

Economic reports indicate that the Barcelona have just over 40 million euros to strengthen the team next summer, that number seems insufficient even for signing with the dreamer all Barça: Cesc Fabregas . However, Barca keeps moving in the market and as reported by ' The Confidential ', the president Sandro Rosell could be negotiating the signing of Neymar , the new wave of Brazilian football, ahead of next season 2011/12.

The striker, 19 years , is a weakness of Rosell and, when the military said, and would have laid the groundwork for the operation on a visit to Barcelona André Curi, director of Traffic and personal friend of President Barca on the time when he was the head of Nike in South America.

Neymar himself and would have their 'OK' to the Barca dressing option while Pep Guardiola would have reservations given the peculiar character of the player. Now Curí itself should initiate discussions with the Saints for the exit of a pearl that has already debuted with the senior Brazil. In principle, the agreement is difficult because the Saints could come to ask for 30 million euros. Barcelona try to include in the transaction to players like Henry Keirrison or who are having a good lineup in Brazil.

Interestingly, Neymar was in Madrid with thirteen years and there was speculation his move to Real Madrid. Florentino rejected the transaction because he had to pay one million euros, an amount considered excessive by a player still in his teens. (via AS)

[Barça B] Options to supply Montoya and Ilie

Casualties due to suspension of Montoya and Luis Enrique Ilie require to make changes in the defense and midfield to the Cartagena. The versatility of some players from the template will be very useful to resolve this situation.

The only position that until now had not changed so far this season was the right back. Luis Enrique has changed the goalkeeper, the central and other positions but for the post of '2 'was always a choice: Martin Montoya.

Xerez, Montoya was the fifth yellow card of the season and therefore can not extend his streak of 23 consecutive days in which he has added 90 minutes of play.

The central Bartra or Muniesa, who have played at some point right back with a good performance, are more natural alternatives of a subsidiary template without a pure right lateral margin of Montoya.

Another solution would be to go for a defense of Youth A. in this case Dalmau, Balliu or Campabadal might be useful to play in this demarcation.

One alternative to the right side, Ilie Sanchez can not play this Saturday (16h) in the Mini for receiving five yellow.

Since the injury Oriol Romeu, Ilie Sanchez had taken the place of '6 '. Without both players to fill the midfield solution would be relocated to central or interior Fontàs Jonathan Dos Santos. If the alternative was the Juvenil A would be the best positioned Rossell, Gustavo, Palau, or even inside Javier Espinosa.

Oriol Romeu, Sergi Roberto and Carlos Carmona continue working to speed your physical recovery. In the process of overcoming their injuries today Oriol Romeu has worked for the first time in the Ciudad Deportiva Joan Gamper. Romeu has been exercised in the gym locker room subsidiary.

Cesc more difficult for Barca

The investment limit for Barca market inflation generated by Torres and Chelsea's interest, obstacles to transfer.

Cesc Fabregas's signing for FC Barcelona next summer is a little more difficult. Barcelona economic vice president, Javier Faus, RAC-1 confirmed that the planned investment for next season is 45 million euros at most. The figure is decided from the board for the new business plan, and today, the entity can not afford a larger investment unless you transfer, which complicates a little the arrival of Arsenal captain after the latest developments.

The London club did not agree last summer to listen to Barca for those 45 million would have much things have changed now that Wenger would open the door to a possible move in similar conditions. Only if the Catalan midfielder had the commitment from Wenger of being more flexible thanks to having spent a year in the Emirates, the Barcelona club may rethink an operation around that value of 45 million chance of success especially since the last transfer of Torres to Chelsea and Abramovich interest club for Cesc.

Faus manifestations of the program 'You say,' RAC-1, two nights ago, left no room for doubt: "Our limit for investing in new signings, if no sales are between 40 and 45 million net. We said 40 million in campaign and in the summer. More can not spend this year, "he said. He also explained that "this keeps getting more complicated with signings like Torres, but left the door open for optimism:" We also weigh the desire of the player and the promises they may have "a reference to that commitment Wenger return the favor of not having left a year ago, something happened in his time with Titi Henry. In this sense, if Arsenal still win titles Wenger will run out of arguments.

Regardless of FC Barcelona player, its like going to the Nou Camp and the word of Wenger, the potential economic availability of Barca to sign could be increased by transfers. Otherwise, if in the end it comes down to money, tenders will be far ahead of Chelsea or Real Madrid, almost desperately needs you. (via MD)
