Arda Turan's agent in talks Barcelona, amongst others

Paul Pogba may not be Barcelona's only midfield target. Arda Turan has confirmed that he is on his way out of Atletico, telling followers on his official Twitter page: “The transfer rumors are not entirely correct. My agent is currently in touch with 3-4 clubs. I will update you all if a deal is made.”

Previously his agent Bulut told: “His intention is to leave Spain this summer. His will is to leave and to play in the Premier League, that is the path he would like to take to continue his career. We are currently in talks with three teams but I cannot reveal the names of the clubs. However, I can tell you that they are the best in England and in European football."

Marc Bartra posts enigmatic Twitter message ahead of talks over his future

Marc Bartra's professional future has still not been clarified, although recent developments indicate he is very likely to still be wearing the Blaugrana next season. The FC Barcelona defender, though, has taken to Twitter to post an enigmatic message. "No force will knock down your dreams, because they feed on your own light, your own passion...," he wrote. 

Despite having three teams ready and waiting to pay his release clause -- which is currently at 12 million euros until July -- and the fact he would get more minutes at those clubs to develop, his feelings are blaugrana. 


Barcelona's Martin Montoya in talks with Inter Milan - agent

A two-year loan deal -- after which they will have an option to buy him for €8 million -- is reportedly being discussed and Juan De Dios Carrasco has explained he is optimistic about an agreement being reached. 

"We're talking to Inter about Montoya," Carrasco said. "Let's hope there could be a good conclusion to these negotiations. We're working on it. Montoya feels that Inter are a great club and this would represent a great opportunity."



Manchester United and Arsenal join race for Pedro Rodriguez

Barcelona winger Pedro Rodriguez recently signed a new four-year contract extension but is still open to leaving should a inticing offer come along with Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool joining Inter Milan as clubs expressing interest in the treble-winner. 

Pedro signed his contract extension with the club and player fully aware that if his situation doesn’t change and a lucrative offer for both parties comes along, with a team meeting his €30 million release clause, he could leave the club this summer.

Louis van Gaal's Manchester United eye an unlikely move for Barcelona's Alba

Manchester United are keen on Barcelona left-back Jordi Alba. Louis van Gaal's side want to sign Alba this summer, according to reports in England, even though it is highly unlikely, even impossible, that the player from L'Hospitalet de Llobregat will leave the Catalan club. 

Jordi Alba, an undisputed starter on the left in Luis Enrique's treble winning team, is not thinking about leaving the club after an impressive season. He has only recently signed a new contract which keeps him at Barça until 2020.

It's your turn


What do you think? Would Arda Turan improve the current squad at Barcelona? Should Pedro leave to get more playing time elsewhere? I'd love to hear your views. Share your thoughts with our fellow Blaugranas in the comment box below.

    He said he'll hung his boots at FC Barcelona, no chance for any until he decides to leave, forget him!!!

    1. Exactly. Jordi Alba is a key player in Luis Enrique's scheme and, with that in mind, even considering his departure is pointless.

    The transfer ban and, to a lesser extent, the upcoming election have really made things difficult. Speculation as to who we might or should sign is almost irrelevant. One thing is certain. We can't afford to lose any important players.

    One of those is Pedro. He is an important backup to The Trident. It is understandable that he may want more playing time but he should remember that he is at the best club in the world.

    Fortunately, Marc Bartra, a player who will be a Barcelona starter for many years to come, has realised that. Anywhere he goes, where he is certain to start, is very much a step backwards.

    1. While Pedro has given Barcelona a lot over the years, I can't help but thinking he should be looking for regular football at 28 years of age. Given the quality of Messi, Suarez and Neymar, that won't happen at the Camp Nou.

    Barca should sign one defender and one midfielder. Hummels or Mustafi for the defence and Pogba in thhe midfield

    1. If, as it seems, Bartra stays, there is no need to sign any more defenders in my opinion. And yes, agreed on Pogba: A superb signing that, if completed, won't come cheap, unfortunately.

    Sign Matt Hummels or Skrodan Mustafi to strengthened d defence. Then Ilkay Gundogan and/or Pogba will be a great addition

Barcelona rewriting history after 1,500 matches at glorious Camp Nou

Barcelona have now played a staggering 1,500 games of football at the Camp Nou. The stadium, which was built back in 1957 to replace the legendary Les Corts Stadium due to the demand for tickets exceeding the ground’s capacity, has witnessed 1,119 Barca wins, 238 draws and only 143 defeats over the years.

Barca are clearly not invincible at the Camp Nou but their winning records of 75% and being unbeaten in 90% of home games speaks for themselves.

Barcelona have now become a global phenomenon thanks to not only their dominance, but also the many world-class stars that have been part of their squad over the years. Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar take the vast majority of the spotlight these days, but their success can only be understood as a continuation of the work of legends such as Johan Cruyff, Ronaldinho, Rivaldo, Hristo Stoichkov or Lazlo Kubala over the years.


Camp Nou is a synonym of sporting excellence these days. The recent successes under the leadership of Luis Enrique…

Neymar must stay to secure Barcelona long-term success

Neymar has been excellent for Barcelona since he joined the Catalan giants back in the summer of 2013. Despite the many question marks over whether he would accept to share the spotlight with Lionel Messi, his professionalism off the pitch and even the legality of his transfer, the Brazilian youngster has made a remarkable impact and deservedly become a Camp Nou favourite.

As our partners as Sbobet Mobile know, Barcelona are not currently leading the La Liga table but nobody in their right mind would rule them out of retaining the title. If the Blaugranas are to leapfrog Real Madrid before the end of the season and win the league for the third consecutive season, Neymar has a huge role to play in the nine games remaining.

Fortunately for Cules, Neymar is currently playing the best football of his whole career. Fully established at both club and international level, the No.11's confidence and excellent form makes him a constant danger that rivals constantly struggle to contain -- …
