Cesc and Alexis, falling

Sandro Rosell and delegation in Buenos Aires Barca can land next Tuesday with the first signings in the pocket.


The time of the meetings is drained, chats, telephone calls and even and-mails and messages for SMS. The concentrations of the official competition season and knocking on doors. A serious warning to warn of multiple risks wherefore when traded by amounts ranging between 30 and 40 million euros. All parties know this and seem to have been committed to finding a solution that goes beyond the next three days. This is not a whim. Arsenal's preseason will be a reality next week, a few hours before Chile made its official debut at the Copa America.

Sandro Rosell is more aware than ever of his phone. Not least when you consider that since yesterday are awaiting a call from his vice president, Josep Maria Bartomeu, which tells you the first crack of the season is now officially a new player of Barça. This should be Cesc Fabregas. Barca sources say that everything is OK in the hands of English final. Offers are closed on the table and only a matter of final approval.

In the case of Alexis Sanchez, the club maintains the same position. The club maintains that its proposal is already a reality and Udinese has set a few days for further study. A period of reflection that should expire before the Chilean debut against Venezuela. In the most optimistic scenario could be the case that Sandro Rosell and the top club landed in Barcelona from Buenos Aires just in time to announce two signings next most anticipated sports project.

In the offices of Barça were no developments yesterday. The talks marked with Arsenal Cesc suggest that you should not enter the game of the preseason. That is, on Monday should have resolved his future. Wenger will then recover the reins and start working on the 2011-12 season. Indeed, it was revealed another detail that is significant. Cesc, a few weeks ago Arsenal's watchword, not listed in any of the official posters that promote the team's tour of Asian lands. A symptom obvious that no one trusts its continuity. Only a matter of time and the classic tug of war last minute. Three days until the start of the work of Arsenal and Cesc hurry your vacation waiting to see the light end to a negotiating process that lasts for several years.

The picture Alexis Sanchez is not so clear, although the time frame desired also be adjusted to just under 72 hours. Pozzo family, owner of Udinese, knows better than to negotiate a transfer dispute millionaire in a full championship is a real risk that few are willing to assume. Appeal is not the weather, but the options of an injury or an unexpected event invite the negotiating process to resolve soon.

Barca play with that term. The club said the 27 million fixed plus variable wait 13 Italian club's final answer. A statement that does not correspond to the environment of Udinese, where it is recalled that the contacts remain from both entities who have yet to resolve the fringes. Willingness, yes, definitive agreement, no.

The Chilean press hinted at a possible meeting between the delegation moved to Barca and the Copa America football player, a fact that has been excluded from the selection environment. Not very prudent estimates Rosell force agreement on a face to face with Alexis Sanchez. The picture seems reserved for official confirmation of the signing as Barca.

Operations are sung from the perspective of the club. Managers and executives say they have done hard work and has time to reap the rewards. It's time for the truth. Wenger must return to work and open the door to Cesc as a priority challenge. A similar gesture to that expected Pozzo family with its star Alexis Sanchez. (via SPORT)

Offers to the overdraft

FC Barcelona has already presented its proposals and it is only awaiting that Arsenal and Udinese respond.


FC Barcelona is waiting for Arsenal and give Udinese a response that may be imminent on the respective bids submitted by the Catalan club by Cesc Fabregas and Alexis Sanchez. Some bids that the board and the technical secretariat Barca have already submitted a few days ago and they are pellucid, and according to slides from the environment of Andoni Zubizarreta, immovable. In the case of Cesc , the bet the boat is strong and very much in line austerity marked by Sandro Rosell. And the offer is 29 million euros in fixed and a variable that has a crumb 6 million in which the club has priced the cadets Bellerín Jon Toral and Hector , who was Arsene Wenger after a change of residence are not yet taking advantage of seniors. No joke, notes from the club, but goes very seriously. This is what Arsenal have on the table. Take it or leave it. Barca ended very 'burnt' with Wenger and new intrusions into the quarry and want to make clear that these 'thefts' of promises have to pay. Without going any further, Wenger and Cesc Fabregas was the same tactic has been used now and Bellerín Toral.

Force posture

In this sense, Zubi and Bartholomew have an ace up its sleeve: Arsenal have to return to training next July 5 and Fabregas has made a firm decision not to visit if Wenger does not sell before serving his promise to leave to return, finally, home.

Should Cesc be declared in default, knowing that only want to go to Barcelona, ​​its price would fall. The same could happen if you decide to benefit from the 'transfer request', ie its transfer to formally request a letter, as in his day made Xabi Alonso out of Liverpool.

Meanwhile, the club also awaits a response from Udinese, although if the Italian club seems that negotiation is more on track. 's offer for the Chilean club Barca is more than generous for a 22-year-old is not yet lists of the best in the world: 26 million euros plus another 11 in fixed variables. Some variables that a priori are generous but, analyzed, only if you get the Udinese Alexis became a successful signing. And they are conditioned on the one hand, the Chilean league win for Barça and Champions, and another, who owns more than fifty percent of the games. Something that the level of Barca is not easy.


This weekend could be decisive

When the fans are still digesting the change of Angel Di Maria Cambiasso error Banega after a corner kick allowed Edivaldo Rojas, high heels, and stop subjecting frozen Romero stadium.

With more arrogance that good game, Argentina attempted to be ahead of Gustavo Quinteros, who could have sentenced the encounter with a huge backlash 'Chiquito' Romero Moreno Martins aborted when the tip long sought Dodge.

Revenue Di Maria and Aguero brings freshness and clarity just over the Argentine team, and was just the 'Kun' who scored the equalizer after a precise and precious chest pass with a defender Nicolas Burdisso 76 minutes.

Argentina could win with individual shots Aguero and Di Maria, and Bolivia with one notable stacked Rojas was not a miracle goal. It was a tie, a fair draw. (via SPORT)
