On Tuesday it could close the signing of Alexis Sánchez


The little saga comes to an end. Barcelona summit will attempt to close the first reinforcement of the 2011-12 sports project.

The transfer of Alexis Barca Sánchez has entered the critical line.

With the final numbers that the market throws at hand, the discrete representative has lovingly prepared the ground for the final assault between Gino Pozzo and culé delegation. The owner of Udinese left the city of Barcelona for 48 hours with the homework done. Barca in the offices know firsthand that the will of the Italians passed to respect the public desire Alexis Sanchez. That is, if the club is willing to make a significant financial effort, the Chilean striker could be the first reinforcement of Pep Guardiola thinking about the 2011-12 season.

The negotiating landscape has cleared almost all the questions before the summit announced. Inter Milan, Manchester United and Manchester City "the main economic rivals in the race for the player should they wait resigned Barca final movement, as agreed between the clubs for several weeks. The manager, Andoni Zubizarreta, he secured a first option in the entire litigation, and it will be respected at least until Tuesday. The executive shall exercise its right of first refusal, but must be more generous in its initial proposal. The 25 million euros filtered by the club are a good starting point, although not seem sufficient to swing the stubborn will of the Italians. This proposal must be completed with more money, options on players from the quarry Barca sports variables feasible to achieve in the short term ...

Tuesday and Wednesday is expected to be white smoke. Last night was expected to Udinese owner's son, Gino Pozzo, landed in Granada lands today live to witness the second leg of promotion to division between the Andalusian club is your business group is the majority shareholder "and the Celtic (0 -1 on the way). The weekend will be mere formality, with the occasional phone call and a little more on the table. This is a short break to detail with great detail the final offer.

Despite the smoke screen in the form of baseless statements that have been recited or president Giampaolo Pozzo of Udinese, Franco Soldati, the Alpine Club has sent in `Italian mercato" their willingness to start the bid with an estimated 35 million euros. Both sides know they are positions that will bring maximum and positions if they are to find imaginative solutions to realize the transfer of Alexis Sanchez.

The differences are still notable departure, but all parties agree that they are willing to make an effort to realize the wishes of the player, the preferences of Barca's technical services and the promise given at the time by the Pozzo family: when the time came and a big club called the gates of Alexis, Udinese would rise and allow the Chilean continued to grow away from its current crib.

From Barça environment and ensures that Udinese have not begun formal negotiations to date. By Fernando Felicevich is true that there has been a flow of information, but at no time entered in the chapter on economic bargaining or possible listings with Barca players may change the costumes of the Camp Nou by Udinese. The willingness of both clubs is not to delay the negotiating process over to avoid unnecessary wear. The summit next Tuesday should start with concrete proposals and formulas able to solve the obstacles identified so far. Udinese Barca and still disagree with the valuation of the transaction.

Cesc, closer than ever Barca


His agent, Darren Dein, has already contacted the club to announce that Arsenal are inclined to leave out midfielder.

The signing of Cesc Fabregas to Barca is getting closer to becoming a reality. Arsenal and Barça club already moving in the same direction and although there are ten million difference between the initial amounts (the English club claims 40 `kilos what the ship offers, for the moment, 30), predisposition both lead to the arrival of the template Fàbregas Blaugrana, which is waiting with open arms. Cesc himself and knows firsthand that negotiations are well under way and that finally, after several attempts, you can return to Barca, and is more optimistic than ever about the real possibilities of ending up in the club.

From a position always discreet, the representative of Cesc, Darren Dein, has been in the last few hours very encouraging contacts with the senior management of the club. The officer was scheduled to fly to Barcelona to meet with officials of Barca, but given the media frenzy that is awakening the `case" Cesc has preferred to continue the talks on the phone.

Dein, who has been at least two telephone conversations with officials of the club Catalans, Barcelona transmitted to the road to sign Cesc is more open than ever and that positions are approaching slowly. On the one hand, the club, ready to raise 30 million euros with which it has begun negotiations, implying that he is willing to fight hard for the player. Alternatively, Arsenal, fully aware that the desire of the player is already blaugrana dress and is willing to push to turn that dream into reality. Dein also promised that there will be no interference from other clubs and negotiations, sooner or later come to fruition.

The player's agent, which maintains a great relationship with Sandro Rosell has already forwarded the offer to Barcelona by Cesc has been well received in the offices of Arsenal and that the bargaining situation to be optimistic. The Barca president is scheduled to return this weekend of his business trip to Brazil, which can help substantially to advance the negotiations significantly.
Wenger knows that Cesc wants to play for Barca and only hoped that the proposal Blaugrana will compensate the loss of their captain, the player who has been supported in recent seasons.

The relationship between Cesc and Wenger will be a plus: French coach knows that the player wanted to leave the club since last year, after winning the World Cup and he resigned to avoid prejudicing the interests of Arsenal, Wenger fulfilling the request form a competitive team and hope to all.
But the picture has changed radically: Arsenal closed the season without a title, losing the final of the FA Cup against Birmingham, and the offer that the club has now is far more interesting than the one presented last year when neither Joan Laporta and Rosell managed to convince leaders Arsenal. The transition between the two presidents (Rosell won election June 13, 2010) also helped facilitate negotiations between Arsenal and Barca.

Although Arsenal have slipped some interest in having some players from Barca's youth system in operation (Thiago Alcantara and Martin Montoya could be in sports Wenger plans), the negotiation will focus on purely economic point between the two clubs, must agree on what the real price of Cesc.

Barça directive known Arenys midfielder Pep Guardiola is priority and therefore, make an effort for the negotiations with Arsenal leading to a happy ending. It is true that according to the club `s economic plan only are there 45 million euros to cover the additions required by the template, as confirmed by the financial vice-president, Javier Faus, but the fact remains that the Catalans club is willing to increase that amount (using the money for the signings of upcoming campaigns, when the economic situation of the institution is much better) to secure the signing of Cesc.

The payment will be one of the major items discussed at the trilateral negotiations between Arsenal and Barca brokered by Darren Dein. The London club need to charge the entire amount at once, without deadlines, go to market as soon as possible to sign players of sufficient quality to take on the role of Cesc. Brazilian Felipe Melo, former Almeria and Racing, now at Juventus, could be chosen by the coaching staff at club `GUNN. Gervinho, Ivory Lille, also comes into Wenger's plans to try to build a winning team to end the club's title drought in London.

Barca, however, try to defer payment for several months to alleviate the economic situation of the club and other resources available to sign other players, if Alexis Sanchez and Giuseppe Rossi, reinforcements also necessary for the team's offensive line Pep Guardiola. (via SPORT)

Bojan continuity is not ruled out


No one has spoken to the Linyola, neither the club nor the coaching staff, because its output will be treated with caution.

The last link to a club Bojan Krkic has been the agent Zoran Vekic, who spoke on behalf of the front, without being its representative, placing him in Rome. There are many clubs that, at the news that puts him away from Barca were interested in the player, but so far, nobody in the club has moved a finger to let you know the player I do not have it.

In fact, the only movement that has occurred was in December when the club was renewed until June 30, 2015, two years older than he had signed. Not Pep Guardiola and no authoritative voice has spoken to the player about his departure. Instead, the technician noted Santpedor other three players in red with no consideration for next season. Milito is, Maxwell and limbo. The three do not fall under the plans of the coaching staff and has asked the club they find a way out. Nor Thiago Alcantara is on the list. Anyway, they are not mentioned does not mean you have the opportunity to leave. Although only be so if the operation was satisfactory to all parties. The most likely option for Bojan Krkic, when the time came to make a decision, would be given leave and always choosing the destination. Not at his farewell is defined and is not excluded that the next season to continue wearing the Barça shirt to the orders of Pep Guardiola. While the striker is focused on under-21 European Championship in Denmark, where he hopes to enjoy, again, football. (via SPORT)

Therefore, the Catalan player wants to work personally for the transaction comes to fruition and today and tomorrow will telephone his coach, Arsène Wenger, to try to convince him that he is morally bound to accept the offer from FC Barcelona, ​​that of Mar Arenys considered sufficiently attractive to the entity `GUNN.

This conversation is crucial to seal his move to Barca. Backed by the strength of 30 million euros it has already put on the table the Catalans club and could increase, Cesc will talk to Wenger to fulfill its promise and let him, this time, fulfill his dream of returning to Camp Nou .

Unlike what happened last year when Barcelona's offer was not up to expectations Wenger, Cesc now have all the cards in your favor to win the game of poker with the Frenchman and permanently refloat the negotiations. What is clear is that the Catalan midfielder intends to go all out and come all the way to dress for Barca.

Cesc is scheduled to arrive in Barcelona on Monday to spend some time with his family. Wednesday will be a break to make a fragrance in Madrid, in what will be his first public appearance since the end of the season. The Spanish international could use its appearance to send a compelling message through the media.

Meanwhile, Cesc lives with optimism the days before it can be a major summer signings. He knows that Barca's offer is more than enough to present themselves and ask Wenger to keep his word and will open the door to the club. "If you leave the Arsenal, which is at Real Madrid or Barcelona, ​​but not a Premiership club," he had assured his coach. Well ... now it go through with the French. (via SPORT)
