Valencia stands firm and blocks the transfer of Jordi Alba

Jordi Alba is preferred to occupy the left azulgrana next season.

When Barça, Jordi Alba and his advisers closed for months the return of club Blaugrana player nobody could imagine that Valencia would put as many hurdles for the deal. It has. The setting of the player was convinced that President Levantine, Manuel Llorente, accede to requests from the international transfer would set a reasonable price.

Jordi Alba, their allies and the sports area culé were not that naive, but were convinced that Valencia listen to reason when you consider that the versatile player contract ends in 2013 and this summer was the last great option to negotiate a agreed and collect the corresponding transfer.

At present, the operation is in neutral. Barça covenanted Alba's arrival a transfer subject to 'reasonable' and, of course, is far from the 12 million euros that have been planted Valencia. Can Barça calls pass over a page and study the formula to redirect the operation and address other market alternatives. Alba and its agents must make a move. (via SPORT)
