Pep Guardiola wants Barça's Adama Traore to join him at Bayern Munich


Pep Guardiola has already spoken to the winger to convince Adama Traore to move to the German club. Adama has not started pre-season with the first team and is training with Barça B, who are now in the third tier of Spanish football. It doesn't look like there will be space in the first team squad, with even one of Sandro or Munir tipped to go on loan. The player's clause is €15 million, which could prove a bargain for Pep's Bayern.

Barcelona consider loaning Alen Halilovic with West Ham and Everton on high alert over the 'new Luka Modric'


Barcelona are ready to signal a scramble for starlet Alen Halilovic as they ponder letting him out on loan. The 19-year-old Croatia playmaker has been likened in style to Luka Modric. He hopes to impress coach Luis Enrique on Barcelona’s tour of the United States and may be kept in the squad until January as their transfer embargo prevents Arda Turan from playing. However, Halilovic is conscious of not playing regularly and is keen for the club to explore all options. Sevilla have been touted as his main suitors but West Ham manager Slaven Bilic is monitoring events as are Everton.


Manchester United renew Barcelona rivalry with another U.S. meeting


Eric Steele: "The full 11 need to be committed, but certain players got into pockets and you could see others getting disillusioned. You need to deny Barcelona the ball. If you have the ball, you can use it. When Barcelona get on top, you spend a lot of time chasing. Then it starts to affect you mentally. Did we have anyone who could lift us in the 2009 Champions League final? No. Everyone was devastated. The last 20 minutes were a blur. There was no way back. We couldn't get the ball. You can't get back into a game if you can't get the ball."

Barcelona are in talks with Monaco defender Aymen Abdennour


According to French newspaper L'Equipe, Aymen Abdennour's agent has been in Barcelona to speak with FC Barcelona about a possible deal for the Monaco defender. Sources close to Barça, though, have denied any meeting took place. However, Jilan says contact was initially made in June and that there are several other clubs interested in the Tunisian. L'Equipe report that Atletico Madrid, Juventus, Inter Milan and Liverpool are all keen on the 25-year-old, who is rated at 10 million euros. 

Luis Suárez breaks down team, preseason on US tour


Luis Suarez: "Arda Turan doesn't speak much Spanish but we're able to speak a little bit in English. Things are also going well with Aleix Vidal. Both of them are very talented, which they've already show with their previous their clubs. They come to help contribute in any way they can. It's a shame we have to wait until January to see them in an official match. They're in a strange situation, different. They train every day but can't play in games. They know what's going on, which is similar to what happened to me."

Would you allow Adama and Halilovic to leave?


Would Barcelona need Abdennour if Adriano left? I'd love to hear your views. Share your comments with our community in the box below.

Can Riyad Mahrez improve Barcelona's attack?

Riyad Mahrez has been linked to Barcelona for a couple of seasons now. His superb performances for Leicester City, which helped The Foxes conquer the Premier League only last season, made him an attractive addition for major European clubs in need of talent.

Mahrez extended his contract for a further four years with Leicester only last summer, shortly after finishing 7th in the run-up for the Ballon d'Or. While The Foxes have been far less consistent this season, the 26-year-old Algerian international was contributed with four goals and two assists in their Champions League campaign.

Undoubtedly, Mahrez would be a great signing for any club. However, would Barcelona be the best fit for his future? Can he bring what the Catalan giants are currently lacking? Listen to Episode 9 of 'The Barcelona Podcast' to find out:

Why Barcelona should sign Yerry Mina in 2018

Yerry Mina has been heavily linked with Barcelona in recent times. The 22-year-old centre-back, who has excelled for both Palmeiras and Colombia in recent times, is rumoured to be joining Barca in the summer -- the summer of 2018, that is.

Given the huge role Mina is bound to play for Colombia in the biggest international tournament in football, the Barca board believe it is best for the young defender to stay in his current club until then. As per sport.netbet.co.uk, Los Cafeteros are currently 28/1 favourites to win the World Cup in 2018 and their limited chances of success would only increase if Mina's form and confidence is exceptional when it truly matters.

Barcelona reportedly agreed an option to bring Mina from Palmeiras to the Camp Nou for a €9 million back in October 2016. However, the Barca board believe that the 195cm Colombian should remain in his current club until the end of the 2018 World Cup, to be played in Russian next summer.

Lucas Lima is not the midfielder Barcelona need despite Neymar recommendation

Lucas Lima is close to finalising his transfer to Barcelona in January 2018, according to reports in the Brazilian media. The 26 year-old midfielder, who currently plays for Santos and the Brazilian national team, is rumoured to be joining Barca on a free transfer once his current deal expires on 31st December 2017.

Lima has reportedly received offers from Real Madrid, PSG and Bayern Munich in recent times. However, the gifted Santos playmaker is set to sign a four-year deal with Barcelona as soon as July 1st, exactly six months before his contract with Santos expires.

While I don't doubt that the Brazilian international is a quality player, it seems obvious that the fact that his agent is in fact Neymar's dad has helped his potential move to Barcelona. Having dated Neymar's sister and his close friendship with Barca's No.11 would not have done much harm to his chances of securing a move either.

If rumours were to become a reality and Lima joined the Catalan giants du…

Dani Alves to Manchester City: Another example of terrible business by Barcelona

Dani Alves has been linked with a move to Manchester City and is expected to join the Sky Blues in the coming days. Astute as ever, former Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola has not wasted a second to approach his former star in order to strengthen his squad this summer.

Dani Alves was allowed to leave Barcelona on a free transfer only last season. Considering his continued excellent performances for Juventus, it is obvious why Guardiola is prepared to pay a fee of €5.7 million to reunite with the veteran Brazilian full-back.

Alves' departure can only be considered as terrible business for Barcelona -- and this is certainly not the first time.

It really is baffling that, while Alves is being offered a further two years to move to the English Premier League, Barcelona are still struggling to find a worthy replacement: With stories linking the Blaugranas to Hector Bellerin or Nelson Semedo splashed all over the Catalan media on a daily basis.

We discussed why Bellerin should be the Bl…

Barcelona future star Eric Garcia snatched by Manchester City

Eric Garcia, one of the most promising youngsters in Barcelona's La Masia academy, has surprised his coaches by announcing his decision to not renew his current contract.

Garcia is, undoubtedly, one of the most promising defenders in Barca's youth system. The 16-year-old center-back, who is already a Spain U-17 international, has continuously been compared to Gerard Pique during his career at the club -- which started at the tender age of just six years old.

Manchester City are reportedly offering the player €1million over the next three years and, unsurprisingly, are therefore the favourites to land Garcia on a free transfer -- given the fact that Garcia does not have a formal contract with Barcelona given his age.

Cesc Fabregas or Hector Bellerin are only a couple of the players that Barca has lost in this controversial manner over the years. This is unacceptable. La Masia has to be the basis for Barcelona's future, as we discussed in much more depth in Episode 7 of …
