Alexis: "I dream of winning titles at Barça"

Alexis Sanchez confirmed the English press their will only go to Camp Nou and Mancini announced that the City withdraws from the bidding.


Alexis Sanchez's signing for the club is taking steps to materialize. Time plays heavily in favor of FC Barcelona in this negotiation. Especially since the main key to the operation, the player is literally engaged in play only at the club and his club, Udinese, known to have this summer to pass it or risk to their best product to lower its rating. Had special significance that the British press yesterday, following the multimillion offers Manchester City and Chelsea by the Chilean striker, picked up some words from the 'Wonder Boy' leaving very clear their desire to sign for Barça. "I dream of playing for Barcelona because there have a chance to win many titles," Alexis said firmly, as published in the 'Daily Mail'.

His desire is no doubt because Alexis may have been elegantly ambiguous when dealing with British media, who want to know if the petrodollars Manchester or rubles Roman Abramovich will be more powerful than the expectation of the player. Apparently, passing the ball along with Leo Messi, Xavi Hernandez and company can handle it all. "I'm still young, but I have the ambition to become the best player in the world," he said Alexis. Also demonstrated a sense of self when he warned that for the future, "I have to be more decisive in front of goal." Another thing sounds like a club. "Perhaps my biggest secret is humility," said the star of the Chilean team about to play the Copa America.

The pull of this boat

If only for money, Alexis Sanchez did not come into the club. The financial offers of Chelsea and, above all, Manchester City have exceeded the 40 long-million to tocateja, and in that competition the club has no chance to get away with it. The great strength of the Catalan club is called football and inigualablegancho today has among the players who want to be something in this racket. Alexis Sanchez is one of them.

The best evidence of that last night gave Roberto Mancini, coach of Manchester City. In the words told Sky Sports Italia admitted to "talk to Alexis, but he wants to go to Barca." Mancini announced that the City withdrew from the bidding.

It is Chelsea, but Barca know they have the winning card to the player. Seen in the Chilean end specific soccer virtues which give that of which does not go left on staff, but also values ​​greatly look forward to coming to shows Alexis.

Logically, the club will make a great effort to achieve the signing treasury, but was never in the numbers who could pay the English, the message pure responsibility for controlling spending advocated by this policy. The operation is acceptable for the Catalan club from a very concrete roof: it offers 28 million euros in fixed, however, has gone up varying amounts. Some sources are already talking about +11 for this item. Udinese began to resign

Italy echoes information MD

"Barca or nothing." Alexis Sanchez's ultimatum to the owners of his club Udinese, was front-page story in yesterday's edition of paper Mundo Deportivo. Throughout the day, many Italian websites and spread the information collected by this newspaper forward. Logically, the most likely exit the player who was declared at the end of the last Italian league is the best player every day then, but the feeling that a great country like Inter Milan and has withdrawn from the bidding live ruefully.

Jeffren and Soriano, key to the deal

The negotiation, if all goes well, should lead to Nou Camp Alexis Sanchez is extremely complex in design, since it depends only on a pure question of money. If the economic formula that is concocting the club and is "imaginative", to compensate for variables which can not be reached with the fixed, there is a human factor that is part of the deal and not easy to fit into the puzzle. Udinese agreed to allow Jeffren Suarez, the brand new European Champion U-21 was part of the payment by Alexis. The problem is that Barca end did not sit very well to negotiate his departure with him in Denmark concentrate with the selection and not from the outset was amused that the possible destination outside Udinese.
However, the club friuliano, qualified to play prior to the Champions League has not lost hope of convincing Jeffren.

Another possibility that is gaining momentum in the late Jonathan Soriano is also part of the deal. Subsidiary striker, top scorer in the Second Division A with 32 points and still with a one year contract as FC Barcelona, ​​of interest to Granada. It's another new twist in this complex history. The Andalusian club, newly promoted to First Division, chaired by Quique Pina, strong man in the Spanish market Pozzo family, owner of Udinese. (via MD)

Homage to the King Messi

The other cracks in the Copa America, Messi rendered.


The day after tomorrow will start the Copa América,, in which Leo Messi wants to endorse his unquestioned status as King of Soccer also Argentina. Since the albiceleste focused the past day 8, their fellow strikers have heaped praise on him, starting with Aguero, Lavezzi and Pastore through and ending with Higuain and Tevez, two of the biggest victims of the bet Sergio Batista crack for Barca as '9 '.

Also the great figures of the other teams in the tournament have paid homage to Messi, who was described as "the best" even though they themselves also try to trace as destabilizing and deadly attackers to goal.

The 'canarinho' Neymar, with whom Leo could see their faces at the end of next July 24, notes that "Messi is above all", while Chile's Alexis Sanchez, intended for the club, insists: "I like love to see Leo play "and Falcao said it was" an honor to call me the 'Messi Colombian' "by the unparalleled quality and class of '10 'of Barcelona.

Uruguay's Luis Suarez, once on the agenda Blaugrana, the Costa Rican or Mexican Bryan Ruiz and 'ex' Giovani dos Santos Barca also have called Leo "out of range" or "special". (via MD)

The club FC Barcelona raises its offer to 35 million more variable and fixed a solution will soon
The player waits for the OK before the weekend and has agreed not to speak today on campus


Gradually, the pieces of 'puzzle Cesc' fit together. No word yet if the puzzle will be completed in a few days or if you have to wait until next week, but what is clear is that all parts are emitting signals in the same direction: that the agreement seems near. In fact, both the player and the FC Barcelona and Arsenal believe that the transfer is almost digested and its realization is a matter of days.

The sources most optimistic Barca even think that the signing could be closed soon, between tomorrow and Friday.

Things seem to roll in the right direction and is not about making noise, now that the agreement seems to be about to materialize.

Arsenal rejected an offer from Barcelona for 30 million but admitted a couple of days at the BBC, through an authorized source, if the Catalan club would end up selling their offer his captain. Barca got the message quickly and went to work on a new offering in the fixed increases substantially (going from 30 to 35 million) and also variable, but never without exceeding the 40 million made ​​it a top Sandro Rosell to spend on Fabregas. The Catalan club hopes to close the operation without touching the fixed 35 million (an amount that is considered more appropriate given that no possible Cesc auction), but as a last resort even then could one ultimate sacrifice of the directive Barca.

Yesterday in London, there was speculation a new journey of Vice President Josep Maria Bartomeu last weekend to present a new proposal to Arsenal, something which is not confirmed. In any case, what is clear is that both the club and Cesc Fabregas deseancerrar recruiting before next July 5, when they officially join the Catalan player should discipline 'gunner'.

As advanced MD, Cesc was seriously pondering a measure of strength and not presented to the first day of work if Arsène Wenger's Arsenal did not fulfill his promise to pierce the club. The English club already know that Cesc is serious and will not result in a sorry spectacle with the footballer in default and accusing Wenger of having deceived him.

All in all, the club has completely closed the deal with Cesc Fabregas . The player has agreed to collect six million euros per season, which would have to add the same variables for individual performance and have set titles the rest of the template.

Cesc looking home in Barcelona

The player will come to your campus today Tordera, but has no intention of making public statements.


The signing of Cesc Fabregas by FC Barcelona has entered the final straight and the outcome is on track to reach throughout the week. Yesterday took place the contacts between the player's representative, Darren Dein, and leaders Barcelona to smooth the fringe earrings. Details, especially related to the final price of the transaction and payment formulas for the Arsenal Barca accepts the final proposal to be located in the 35 million, plus incentives. A figure that seems to meet the objectives Gunners' ¿.

Cesc is very excited about its more than possible return to Barcelona, ​​where she plans to live soon. Therefore, the player has begun the search for a house in the upper area of ​​the Catalan capital. His hope is that the signing will close in the coming days, but in any case is clear that its roots are in Barcelona, ​​close to family and friends, is where you want to settle.

The differences are shrinking day by day and the priority for both Barca and the player's manager is it that no last-minute hitch to complicate the operation. Therefore, the club has recommended Cesc continue acting with the utmost discretion. The player will go today to his traditional appointment with the kids on campus Tordera, but will focus on holiday with small and will not make public statements that could hinder the signing. The priority is not to give any false step, leading Arsenal to return to camp on anger and bargaining. The outlook is for success and, therefore, Cesc does not want a misinterpretation of his statements mean a setback in England and, in principle, opt today for not speaking to the media.

This will be his last public act of the week. The player wants to rest for a week, could travel to Ibiza, awaiting the final outcome of the operation, which could take place from Friday to coincide with the formal start of the year 2011-12. His signing, to be announced in July, and would account in the budget for next season.

Arsenal, meanwhile, has taken on the sale of Fabregas is inevitable. Pending the transaction can be closed soon, the player should travel to London on Monday to start on Tuesday July 5 training under the command of Arsène Wenger. But in England there was speculation yesterday with the possibility that the French gave him permission to incorporating them later closed pending the final details of technical trapaso.El wants to avoid tensions, above all, the discomfort to himself would cause for breaking his word. Wenger promised the Arenys he would sign for the club and although it has given its approval to the transfer, it is not working according to the fidelity that the player has always demonstrated. The Frenchman has preferred to look away and leave it to the clubs who reach an agreement when other signings usually act as lead actor.

Wenger knows that if he comes face to face with Cesc may not require anything. We will have failed and can not give any argument to justify continuing the discipline `GUNN. `Give more vacation would it be a way forward in order to consummate the trapaso. The coach would win long before the team leaves on tour on July 9th to play two friendlies in Malaysia and China.

The technician is planning for the future without the presence of their captain and already thinking about rebuilding the team with 35 million arriving from Barcelona. The agreement should be a reality because it is the option that suits all parties. Be relieved Wenger, Arsenal would get a substantial compensation for a player who joined the club almost zero cost and Pep Guardiola would be his key to a leap in quality. Not to say that Fabregas would realize his childhood dream.

The pieces should fit naturally and it looks like it will soon join with a sense that Cesc is the first signing for next season. (via SPORT)

"The desire to retire in Independiente are, of course. I'd go back in two years, but that is still missing and before I assess if I'm in good shape. It would not if I were in full physical and football. Before giving a bad image I stay home or switch back to the audience as a fan, "he told Ole` ¿.

The club called for flexibility on time and included a number of variables which included the possible inclusion of a player, Alexis sports performance and equipment and other details such dispute Joan Gamper trophy or a friendly. In between formula reached the magic figure of 40 million euros. In sum, 27 million fixed and 13 more subject to incentives.

Udinese partially accepted the proposal by Vice President Josep Maria Bartomeu after incorporating a fundamental clause in the whole network. The Italian club was how good the method of payment dilated Barca but demanded a compensation required to pay the difference up to 40 million euros in a final maturity. That is, yes or yes Udinese charge of EUR 40 million. The only difference is that in terms of the quantities sensed variables before or after. One way of sharing the sacrifice, as the Italians have understood the stresses of treasury Barca remembering that they have given up more juicy financial offers from England.

Bartomeu increased consultations with the president Sandro Rosell and the arrival of Alexis Sanchez suffered a slowdown compulsive disorder. From the outset, the club does not accept the amendment suggested by Udinese. Barca just want to reach 40 million euros to ensure Champions League title do or what League player's optimum performance based on their ownership. Two small demands that the Italian club unwilling to take considering the varying amounts to almost 40% of the volume of the operation.

The rest of the fringes themselves have been resolved gradually. There is no problem splitting up late payments in three years and include comfortable option Jeffren in the transaction. If the striker accepts, Udinese will open the door and the club will lower the operation of three million euros. Otherwise, there is no major drawback, the Catalan club should put more cash on the table. Everything is covered.

Unable to close the large transfer, Barca and Udinese scored a truce. Taking advantage of the family's own efforts Pozzo, Barca executives agreed to seek a third way able to satisfy the Italian club. It now remains to translate it into an imminent summit. Bartomeu must make a move and schedule a new session key is presumed. Just need one last fringe, but still there pending. Udinese are not the work of selling their star for less than 40 million euros and the club just wants to access them through the triumph of the Chilean gem. (via SPORT)

You have to leave and try to form a team based on it, that understand the game you like. Messi does not want privileges.

Is the key is to have guys who understand Messi?
