Eric Abidal, Angel Di Maria, Isco, Koke, Adriano | Barca Top 5


Joan Laporta launches Barcelona campaign with Eric Abidal as assistant

Abidal, 35, played for Barça between 2007 and 2013 and made a successful return after undergoing a liver transplant in 2012. “Barça is more than a club and I wanted to carry on working and maintain a link to that,” Abidal, who would help oversee their transfer market dealings, said. Another of his tasks would be to ensure Barça’s La Masia academy, which produced Lionel Messi, Andres Iniesta and Xavi, remained the centre of excellence.


Has Josep Maria Bartomeu agreed a deal to bring Isco to Barcelona?

Josep Maria Bartomeu insinuated that one of his trump cards in the election campaign was a top level Spanish midfielder, a player who is currently at a Spanish club in a transfer which would be announced in the run up to the Barcelona elections in July. Names quicky came out, with Koke, Vicente Iborra and Dani Parejo put on the table... but reports indicate Bartomeu is talking about none other than a player who plays for Barça's eternal rival: Real Madrid's Isco.


Barcelona could offer Manchester United's Angel Di Maria a return to La Liga

Angel Di Maria still doesn't know which shirt he will be wearing next season. Currently playing in the Copa America, the Argentine only knows two things. The first, is that he still has a contract with Manchester United. The second, is that he would like to leave Old Trafford as soon as possible. And in this scenario, both the player and his agent have spent weeks looking for clubs at the top level prepared to pay what it would cost to do a deal with United. Barça are one of the clubs interested in a possible deal, with the response from Di Maria and his agent positive.

Koke to stay at Atletico Madrid despite Barcelona link - agent

"We are not surprised but flattered," Koke's agent Inaki Espizua said. "It's great to hear these kinds of things, especially from a club like Barca, but right now the player's position is very clear. He feels he is a key part of Atletico de Madrid's plans for the future and I therefore have very little else to add."

Adriano could leave Barcelona, admits agent

Paulo Afonso, the Brazilian's representative, explained: "Adriano is very happy at Barcelona, he gets along well with everyone and has written true history there. But he wants to play, he wants more minutes, and that's the only thing that could see him leave Barca. We are listening to offers and, when we meet with the player, we will get together with the club and find the best solution for both parties. He wants to have more minutes and to play for a Champions League team."

It's your turn

BARCELONA PODCAST: El Clasico, Champions League elimination, La Liga

The latest Barca Podcast is now live! George Bennet from GB Articles interviewed Francesc Tomas and questioned him on Barca's recent El Clasico victory, the disastrous Champions League elimination and the decisive final matches in La Liga. You don't want to miss this!

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 -- …
