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.

Why Sergio Busquets' criticism of the Barcelona board is fully justified

Sergio Busquets is a player who prefers to stay away from the spotlight and do his talking on the pitch, ensuring Barca's engine continues to tick with his vision, positioning and charisma. However, in the rare occasions in which he decides to speak to the world's media, his words are loud and clear.

Following Barca's frustrating home defeat (1-3) against Real Madrid in the first leg of the SuperCopa, Busquets did not hesitate to demand much-needed new signings in order to reinforce the Blaugrana squad after the unexpected departure of Neymar:

"We try to improve the team regardless of the result of the Super Cup match. Those who come will be welcome. After Neymar's departure, we know that we need mostly offensive players, but we need to improve in all positions and aspects. With Neymar's departure evidently the team lost an attacking level, because you realise the footballer that is Neymar, there everyone will agree. About that we have Messi-dependence, in the…

Why the Barcelona board should be concerned about the #BartomeuOut Twitter campaign

Josep Maria Bartomeu is under huge scrutiny in recent times, and deservedly so. The humiliating 5-1 aggregate defeat against Real Madrid in the Spanish Supercopa was a terrible blow for Barca's morale but to think the club's problems are all a direct result of a poor result during preseason is far too simplistic.

Bartomeu, together with his predecessor and close friend Sandro Rosell, has brought Barcelona into a disheartening situation which not even the most pessimistic fans could have possibly predicted five years ago. Years of neglecting La Masia, countless signings that have struggled to make the starting lineup and the inability to connect with club members are only some of the reasons why the social media campaigns #BartomeuOut and #BartomeuDimiteYa have become a worldwide trend that show how concerning the current situation is.

We talked about the Bartomeu situation in much more depth, as well as El Clasico, Luis Suarez, Paulinho, Samper and Betis in our Episode 25 of …

Signing Paulinho for €40M is utter madness from Barcelona

Barcelona have signed Paulinho from Guangzhou Evergrande after paying €40 million for his transfer, as speculated in his release clause, according to multiple sources.

The Brazilian international midfielder, who would sign a four-year deal worth a reported €5M per season, would have completed a very unusual career path after being rejected by Tottenham Hotspurs in the English Premier League, then coming back to form in the Chinese Super League before landing at the Camp Nou at 29 years of age.

To say the signing of Paulinho is puzzling is a huge understatement. While it is disappointing to see the current Barcelona board struggling to bring world-class talent such as Philippe Coutinho or Ousmane Dembele to the Camp Nou, it is in fact much worse to see them having to pay the release clause of a player that has not been linked with any other major club in recent times.

Sure, it is clear that Paulinho has been a major contributor to the current leaders of the Chinese Super League but, h…

Philippe Coutinho's transfer request brings him closer to Barcelona

Philippe Coutinho has reportedly issued Liverpool with a transfer request, a move that can only be understood as the next step in his ongoing battle to join FC Barcelona during the current transfer window.

The Catalans are believed to have offered up to €100M for Coutinho but, given his importance within the Reds' squad, his current club has refused to allow his to leave for the current La Liga runners-up.

Both Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp and club owners Fenway Sports Group have publicly explained that Coutinho will be part of the Liverpool squad for the upcoming season regardless of how much money Barcelona decide to offer to secure the Brazilian's services.

Coutinho, clearly unhappy about the latest developments, has decided to take matters a step further in a desperate attempt to agitate the current situation and force a transfer to the Camp Nou.

Personally, I believe that Coutinho would be a great addition to Barcelona given his undeniable quality, experience in a huge…
