Thiago: "The absolute means that now we require more"


"We need to look like the absolute title and gameplay, but there is a good basis and the results will come alone," says the SER from the merger of Denmark.

"Now we are demanded more because we have to resemble the absolute selection in holding and it forms of game, but there is a good base and the results will come alone", he said in being the player from Barcelona Thiago Alcántara, concentrated with those Sub-21 that the European from Denmark that begins on Saturday, prepare and that it is the key to reach the Olympic Games of London.

The Challenge of the rivals of Spain, England, Czech Republic and Ukraine, said: "Three games than any player wants to play. And we are talking about Spain, not a computer through Europe."

I'm flattered you ask me, but I want to stay and the club has told me to tell me. " (via AS)

Piqué: “We have a lot of challenges ahead”


Gerard Piqué believes the team is as ambitious as ever about next season. Although Barça have won everything, they still have challenges ahead, such as “winning the fourth Liga and retaining the Champions League”.


The Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper was the venue chosen for Nike to present the new boots that Gerard Piqué will be wearing from now on. After winning the double and then travelling with the Spanish national team for two friendlies, the defender has spoken to the press.


His main topic of conversation was next season. “There are a lot of challenges ahead. Winning the fourth Liga, retaining the Champions League and the European Championship with Spain”, said Piqué. He knows that a fourth league in a row would equal the achievement of the Dream Team, and also they could become the first team to win back-to-back Champions League titles since the new format was introduced.


Piqué has been at the club for the same length of time as Guardiola as manager, and so has also won ten titles in three years. He believes it is getting harder and harder to continue being successful and “not because we are less ambitious, but because the other teams are spending more to win titles … but we are as keen as ever, and that’s how we can achieve the targets next year”.


In his speech after winning the Champions League at the Camp Nou, Piqué insisted that “we don’t take drugs, we don’t dive, we don’t bribe referees, we just play football”. In saying so, he explained today that “I wanted to make it clear that we haven’t done any of the things they have accused us of”. Piqué knows that such attacks are likely to continue next season, but “we have to put up with them if we want to win titles. The team is prepared for that”.


As ever, the close season rumours are attaching many names to the Barça shirt for next season, and one of those is Cesc Fàbregas. Piqué describes his fellow Catalan as “a great player and the kind of player that would fit in at Barça, he knows the language we speak on the pitch”. But although he would be delighted for Cesc to come to Barcelona “anything can happen in the world of football”.

Piqué also spoke about Rossi, who he played alongside at Manchester United. “He has an exquisite left foot, he scores and he’s quick. He is a player that would work at Barça and gets 10 out of 10 as a person”. Alexis Sánchez, another name that has been mentioned, “is great in one on ones”.


One of the images of the Wembley final that was seen around the world was that of captain Carles Puyol insisting that Éric Abidal should be the man to receive the Champions League trophy. Piqué feels that was “a unique gesture. We are so lucky to have a captain like Puyol, who has such a big heart. It shows what our squad is like, we are like brothers, and that struck the heart of the Barça fans and anyone who likes football". (via FCBarcelona.cat)

[Ex player&coach] Rexach: "Barça should not sign to sign"


Carles Rexach was in favor of strengthening the team with 2 or 3 signings, but with players of a special profile. The DNA program Barça 'Barça TV, former Barca coach has also highlighted the good season for Villa.

"The Barça has to sign special players, but find it hard to adapt to team play. " These words of Carles Rexach in the program Barça TV 'DNA Barça. " The former Barca player and former coach and current adviser to the club recognizes that the team needs reinforcements to next season with high ambition. Just do not at any price: "We can not sign for sign. For that we already have good players in the Barça B . I think Pep players want different, special and if not do exactly what he wants, then solved differently in the field. Although initially cost them fit the style of Barcelona, ​​and certainly after they will. "

Carles Rexach argues the need to strengthen the staff to compensate for any injury casualties likely to have the equipment and that may affect their competitiveness, "This year we have been lucky with injuries but in the final stretch where we have injured men Puyol , Maxwell, Adriano and Abidal disease. Luckily, Mascherano has adapted well to the central position. But if next year the team are injured longer than two or three months, the club is a fair bit of effective, especially in attack. The logic tells us that with enough two or three signings , "said Rexach.

Rexach said in the 'DNA Barça' on Wednesday the good season that has made ​​striker David Villa . A Charly likes regular strikers who score goals in big games and much of the game involving the team. David Villa is one of them: "Except in the final stretch of the season, Villa striker has been a very regular basis. A good striker should score at every game. I am not used to score 3 or 4 goals in one game and then spend five matches without door. Villa is one of those forwards that guarantee regularity. His numbers are good but beyond that I think in general, the signing of Villa has been a success. " (via FCBarcelona.cat)

Eight million separate Alexis Sanchez of Barca

Barcelona continues its path to sign Alexis Sanchez, who is one of the goals set by Guardiola. Barca made a first offer of 22 million euros. An amount that is far from the aspirations of Udinese, which calls for 30 by the Chilean striker.

The Italian club is not going to make it easy. In fact, now have 25 million bid for Manchester City so in any case sell for less. And that is precisely the quantity limit is set for Barcelona to take on this move.

At this time followed by phone or email conversations. The positions are very distant and does not look that can produce an agreement soon.
In fact, Gino Pozzo made a statement yesterday in which Chile did not rule out that a year stay at Udinese. The Italian club will play after the Champions League and if they qualify for the group stage are aware that their value will decline. Quite the contrary.

For this reason, Udinese think not lower their financial claims. He has been priced at 30 million and will not yield much. "Only go if we get an irresistible offer for the striker," Pozzo said.

Barcelona does not intend to reach this figure because that would mean giving up other signings. Xavier Faus, Barcelona economic vice president, made clear that the Catalan club has 45 million more than what you enter to sign sales. And in these sales do not count those of Cáceres, Hleb, Henry Keirrison or because they have outstanding amounts to be amortized.

Pending sales
Sales would have to come from players such as Bojan, Thiago or limbo. It is clear that at least two of these players will have to leave Barcelona because if they do, may not assume the signings of Cesc, Sanchez and Rossi.

Nevertheless, Faus left the door open so that this amount be expanded. If Bartomeu Zubizarreta and ask for more money the Board would review the matter and make a decision. However, it is unlikely to happen something. Firstly because Zubizarreta is clear what are the limitations of the club and hardly ask for more money.

And secondly, because if so, the directive is very clear that is not the time to do extras. (via Marca.com)

In a cordial chat between Wenger and Cesc, the last, the technician opened the door of the Emirates with the condition that no other English team strengthened. "I let go to Barcelona or Madrid, the Premier, no," were the words addressed to Catalan Alsatian fulfilling the promise he made last August.

The negotiations between clubs will not be easy but the green light from French and Cesc will remarán favor. (via MD)

Hey, what do you give people to love him so, at Barcelona, ​​in Ukraine?

First of all I must thank the love of people, seemed to my fans, who were in the club. I have seen up to a second Ukrainian to the Blaugrana jersey when heated. But really, I sincerely believe that applause was also for my teammates, to Barcelona for the show we did in the Champions League final at Wembley. It was great and the good fans appreciate it.

You said the other day to make up weight ...

And there we are, it is not easy to recover the four pounds I lost. You should go slowly and work hard.

But it's amazing how you are physically.

I can not complain about how everything went. It was two months and peak of my operation and I am very happy to have helped my team at Wembley, not to miss the final part in the great cavalcade of both the Champions League and, seeing people happy , from all social classes, children and adults. It was a contagious joy that suits you, which compensates for my work, but also the doctors, 'physios' around the world who have supported me. I also play his credit. Without them there could have been.

And has earned you a vacation ...

No way, I do not vacation.

Are you sure?

Sure, I have to catch up, get fit to be on top at the start of the season to be beastly with a inwhichthe August we have to play the two Super Cups, including two legs against Real Madrid. I can not afford the holidays and I do it for the club, its people.

Eric, do not pass you.

No, I'm still a work plan. I also with France playing minutes. Laurent Blanc does the same as Pep Guardiola. Give me the opportunity to save time, but without risks.

Speaking of Laurent Blanc, the former Blaugrana Barcelona is mental note ...

Yes, France is also based his play on the ball. Blanc to remember their way through the club (laughs), something must have hit him. What happens is that the difference between the players is great.

But so are you a draft Iniesta with Marvin Martin, the guy from Sochaux.

He likes to play in the Spanish style, as in the club. It is of Spanish origin, his family is Spanish. Lucky for us because he preferred to play with the 'bleus' with France. And, yes, you remember things Iniesta, but still falls short of my partner is very young. But he has technique, character and ambition. Come, for sure.

Laurent Blanc is doing as Pep Guardiola, giving opportunities to young people.

Yes, the coach takes into account the quality of their players, not age. It does not matter if they are young or old. Want to play a certain way, treat the ball well, we do not lose, to maintain the position, pressure and look for the goal. Yes, in short, is the same philosophy of Barça, but still far in the game's quality and effectiveness despite the final 1-4 against Ukraine.

With France central defense is you.

I play where the coach tells me and where better my team will go to either the club or the 'bleus'. Laurent told me to play there and have had no problem. It came with the bonus of having played central defense handed the captain Carles Puyol ausenciadel when he was injured. I have not come back. I am comfortable, as if I play side. I attached to the two positions. (via MD)

José Enrique, 8 times 'Man of the Match'




The left sideback has followed the club has been 'out' this season.

It is unusual that a defense is the best team in a match. But if that defense is the best in the game, ie the two teams playing, the thing is beginning to have merit. But then, when that defender gets to be the most outstanding man in eight matches in the Premier, that means that the type in question has quality and, moreover, is that 'out'. Everything that applies to José Enrique, one of the left side that is following the FC Barcelona, ​​who just ended season was 'Man of the Macht' in eight of the 36 Premiership matches he has played defending Newcastle shirt.

This amazing state of shape, physical strength, quality, and the fact that it is ending a year of the contract have reasoned that the club will have done a comprehensive monitoring throughout the season and reported that MD and the final conclusions have been very positive. In short, a player who could fit in the current Barca, something that could qualify as big words as the excellent level of the team that Pep Guardiola.

In the Premiership there is a tradition that each party chooses the best player of the match. José Enrique, without looking, it has taken eight times smaller home a trophy in global terms but very symptomatic of the quality and time so that is going through a player. It also has great merit because it has highlighted the Valencian more than anyone before several large equipment front against the highest level in the Premiership.

Against Aston Villa, on the second day of the Premiership, was decisive with his passes in two of the six goals that the 'Magpies' you got to Villa. Also annulled the skillful Ashley Young.

Reforzadísimo Manchester City before the team lost, but he said due to its offensive vocation led him to crash a ball at elpalo. In the day 22 in the derby against Sunderland was the best, as in the next day to the very rapid Lennon Tottenham ahead. And in the days 33 and 37 also was 'Man of the Match', in games against United (well before Nani and Valencia) and Chelsea (sung saved two goals). For this reason, Joseph Henry is coming out. Who signed him is another story.

Valencia Vacation
Jose Enrique is currently at his home in Valencia resting after the intense season that has lived in Newcastle. A team that has had several familiar faces (Jonas Gutierrez, Fabricio Coloccini, Andy Carroll) but has had to sweat hard not to feel the pinch in the final stretch of the campaign. He is represented by his brother Salvatore, who lives pending the phone in case the interest shown by several clubs is specified or if since you report that Newcastle have bid on the side. José Enrique out of contract in 2012 and, therefore, is one of the most desirable parts of Newcastle. Given their good performances, even been rumored that Vicente del Bosque could call the selection. (via MD)

"There is a coach who commands and decides that between Ibi. Of course I was angry but as the other players who did not enter. I have only 20 years and hope to regain the opportunity to play a final. "

To Bojan his first choice remains the Barcelona, ​​but he does not dare to predict that the club will continue safely. "I have 20 years and maybe it's time to get more minutes, play more ... but you never know. In the world of football future is uncertain. Last season at this point was said to have been decisive in the final. Everything changes in a moment. Perhaps that option to have more minutes I have in Barcelona. "

Ferguson improving supply of Barca by Alexis Sanchez


The British press warns that United will not stand idly by watching the Chilean close to Camp Nou.

In yesterday's edition, SPORT warned that Manchester United has not said its last word on the future of Alexis Sanchez. The British are aware of the agreement between the player and the club, but they know that the fight between clubs can raise battle. They are aware of their economic power and are willing to run. Several media outlets say that Sir Alex Ferguson has given orders to break the box and complete a financial offer of about 35 million euros. Input equals the proposal of City and is well above that of other clubs who have shown interest in the Chilean striker.

Udinese, the player's agent and even the club expected this movement and are not taken by surprise. All parties knew that Ferguson was not bluffing when it aired a few months ago his desire to sign Alexis Sanchez and become one of the cornerstones of the English attack. The technician said that United would be positioned in the market, and so it proved.

Since the family owns the Italian club, Gino Pozzo, has reiterated that it would open negotiations between clubs to have all the deals in the market. Logical and expected normal if an offer of 35 million euros which obviously increases the cost of product. The auction has gone through the roof and rubs his hands Udinese. The consultant international striker, Fernando Felicevich, is responsible for channeling these last-minute proposals. A requirement considered essential before breaking the deck with the initiation of contacts between entities. When Felicevich close the filter screen offers and forward end, the club must come to terms with Udinese. To date, since all parties have refused and negotiations have been limited to small contacts accept as a token of goodwill.

Until 48 hours, the club slipped a starting point that should move about 25 million euros in cash plus some for another player to complete the Italian club's wishes. It was a movement beginning to see the arsenal of its opponents. Following Ferguson spread up the bid to 35 million euros, the picture has changed. Yesterday, more than one was put her hands to her head and while Vice President Javier Faus practiced an uncompromising defense of cost containment, club sources hinted that the club might be able to upload a maximum of up to 32 million euros. In this case, the club would try to avoid the inclusion of a player who would look to be included in another operation that would enter something in cash.

The newspaper The Sun claims that, in addition to the economic weight of 35 million euros, the offer from Manchester United would be accompanied by a tempting offer sports. Ferguson would have been transmitted to the player he wishes to turn a crack world-class media guaranteeing ownership in a team that practices a perfect game for him.

Already negotiate for Cesc


FC Barcelona will meet today officially claims Arsenal. The agreement is emerging for an amount close to 40 'kilos'.

The negotiations between Barca and Arsenal by signing Cesc Fabregas can make significant progress during the day today with the visit of representative of the player, Darren Dein, to Barcelona. The player's manager will move to the Gunners' requirements "under his arm and will seek a first official approach between the two parties to seek a consensus figure for the transfer.

Arsenal have assumed that the player's progress is inevitable. Arsène Wenger is thinking of making the next payroll without the presence of the captain. Of course, the club has entered a very large number of Barcelona from the sale of the midfielder. The amount set by the Arsenal game could be closer to 50 million euros. A number thinking it must be lowered dramatically and that the perpetrators of the London club facing reduced to 40 million. Barca, meanwhile, will begin talks from 30 million euros. To these amounts must be added the players who could interest Wenger. Jeffren names, Bojan, Thiago dos Santos or Jonathan will be on the table.

Darren Dein is the intermediary between the two parties. The manager has had talks regularly with the Barcelona president, Sandro Rosell, the telephone. Today you can do it face to face with the heads of the sports area, such as Josep Maria Bartomeu, Andoni Zubizarreta and Raul Sanllehí. Rosell arrive on Saturday of his trip in Brazil. Dein officially present the claims of Arsenal and also outlined the strategy to follow now that is best for the player and the club.

Cesc is fully convinced that next season will play at Barca. Pep Guardiola has confirmed that it would be a key part in sports gear. The relationship between and Guardiola Cesc Fabregas is fluid and will not hesitate to put everything in their power to join the next project Santpedor coach.

For now, the player will closely follow the talks with Dein hold those responsible for the sport and, from next week, will move from London to Barcelona with the hope that the bargaining has been unlocked and their arrival at Camp Nou slowly becoming reality.

The workhorse is the agreement between the clubs since Cesc has agreed to their contract with the club from the stage as Joan Laporta Barcelona president of the organization. Money is a secondary issue for Arenys as their only priority is to play for Barça in a locker room where you have no problem of integration with international friendship and Leo Messi Barca, who concurred in football base before emigrating to London.

Tito Vilanova was his coach during the formation stage in the grassroots and has been a figure from within the dressing room has also placed great emphasis on the desirability of its incorporation.

Guardiola and Tito agree that Cesc has the advantage over the rest of signings that should not go through a process of adaptation.
