With rumours surfacing surrounding the future of Javier Mascherano in recent weeks, Barcelona boss Luis Enrique is on the hunt for fresh defensive options this summer. Lyon’s Samuel Umtiti is the latest name to be linked with a move to the Camp Nou, and if may well not be too long until we see the Frenchman’s arrival in Spain. Despite apparent interest from Premier League duo Chelsea and Arsenal, a deal between the Spanish champions and the French side is said to be close to completion.

Tough times never last, but tough people do.Robert H. Schuller
Will this be Argentina's and Messi's Copa America? From the time the little magician appeared in football stage, A Nation has been waiting for him to take the Footballing Nation to the heights never seen since Diego Maradona has retired (Or shamefully thrown out). The Eternal hope has been the guiding light for Argentinian fans in every tournaments. They usually start each tournaments as firm favourites but never lived up to that billing. With Messi on helm they made substantial progress making into the finals of the last two competition - Copa America and World Cup. But in those two finals they somehow managed to make life tougher and eventually fail. In the World Cup they had enough chances to seal the cup long before Goetze made it fourth title for Germany. Same was the case in the last Copa final against Chile. So will they manage to succeed this time? Every football betting odds have placed them the favourite to lift Copa America 2016.

For FC Barcelona it's a familiar Spanish affair waiting for them in the Quarter Final stages of this season's UEFA Champions League. Without any doubt the clash between the current table topper and second placed side La Liga sides are the most eye-catching and toughest clash of this round of Knockout Stage. Barcelona without any doubt would be full of confidence having already beaten Atletico Madrid twice in their League encounters this season. Even though both of these matches were real tough, Barca will be once again hoping that Lionel Messi, the five time Balon d'Or Winner will continue his excellent form against the second team from Capital and pull them through.

It's a very sad day for FC Barcelona football club with the passing away of Barca Legend, Johan Cryuff. In February, he tweeted about his fight with Cancer and how he felt he would overcome it. It was not meant to be. For Barca, he has been undoubtedly the Greatest Player and Coach. A look into the Clubs Character and playing style you would see his influence everywhere - even in the majority of trophies we have won in recent times. As a Barca fan, I would like to thank him for all memories and entertainment. May his Soul Rest In peace.

It feels like a lifetime ago since Barcelona last tasted defeat in La Liga, with the 2-1 reverse at the Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium against Sevilla in October coming at a time when Luis Enrique’s side were experiencing a minor wobble. Lionel Messi was always likely to be a big miss for us when a knee injury ruled the 2015 Ballon d’Or winner out for two months, with Barcelona enduring a poor run of two defeats in three games; an unconvincing 2-1 victory at the Nou Camp against newly-promoted Las Palmas was sandwiched in between a heavy 4-1 loss at Celta Vigo and the defeat at Sevilla.
