Market times for Barça

Alba, Van Persie and Vertonghen can get cheaper at the end of their contracts in 2013.
Kuyt and Berbatov also negotiated his way now and if Alves leaves, Srna's free.


The technical secretariat of FC Barcelona takes many months working to reach the moment of truth with as much information as possible. The club treasury is not anything to write home (100 million to sign, nothing), so market research is vital to achieve more affordable prices. This applies to Jordi Alba, one of the jewels in the list of players who are free in 2013 and, that after difficulties to make a greater investment by Gareth Bale is closer every day to play at the Camp Nou.

Also on the left back 'che', the contractual status of many players makes them market opportunities. Other cracks priced calls to negotiate a renewal or transfer this summer are Van Persie, whose desire to leave Arsenal and dressing azulgrana and was advanced by MD on January 31. Although a bet would be expensive and contrary to the model FC Barcelona, ​​Fernando Llorente also have the uncertain future. Huntelaar, top scorer (29) of the Bundesliga with Schalke, would not less but more than the '9' Athletic.

Moreover, the alternate front profile would not require an alternative title and would offensive fit with Berbatov and Kuyt. The Manchester United in March ran a clause to extend the contract one year of the first (1.88 h) for the sole purpose of making cash now. The Bulgarian has already been in orbit before joining azulgrana Ibrahimovic and Dutch in the case of Liverpool's very smart to play with his back door open even a little to the band, Luis Suárez and Carroll have seen limelight and output welcomed Anfield.

From midfield upwards, are attractive playmaker Kagawa (Dortmund), tempted by the ManU, the ends Walcott (Arsenal), Susaeta (Athletic), Malouda and Sturridge (Chelsea), the pivot Sissoko (Toulouse), the tip Michu (four 'kilos' clause with the Lightning) and even the experience of Di Natale (Udinese), natural goalscorer. On defense, the Belgian Vertonghen stands, center left Ajax for powerful high (1.89) and bright on the ball out. You can spare 'girlfriends' but his agent knows nothing of Barcelona for two months, as revealed Ona FM. His teammate Van der Wiel, right side, is claimed by Real Madrid and Roma.

Among those who would go free in July, Drogba (Chelsea) and Pogrebnyak (Fulham) comply profile '9 'tank. Kalou (Chelsea) would be a wildcard in attack, while the great occasion would Srna, Shakhtar right winger, Alves option if you leave. The Croatian, 30, is not Brazilian but his background and depth would be a guarantee. Chivu (Inter), full-back and left lecenter-back but his injury is free detract many options. Finally, would he even would sign Del Piero. Juve will not renew at 37, despite help conquer the scudetto, but that is science fiction. (via MD)
