Goal.com reported a story which featured in Daily Mirror about a possible exchange deal involving Kompany and Robinho for Yaya Toure and Puyol. This definitely has to be a joke or an imagination of some disturbed mind. Howelse you can explain the exchange of one of the best defensive midfielder and defender for two players who are struggling to find a regular place in the Manchester City side. But there could be some deal involving Yaya or Puyol in next summer. For some insane reason I have always felt that Guardiola rarely appreciate the value of Yaya Toure. Maybe he does not think him to be a good player, but for me he is the best defensive midfielder along with Essien in the business. o I won't be too much surprised to see him leave in the summer, even though I will be really shattered. He is the best assurance our attack needs in the midfield. In the case of Puyol, Barca management has given him an ultimatum to complete the contract negotiation as soon as possible. Puyol's agent alleges that Puyol is not happy with his role in the side but I don't think Barca will let him go. Especially a new president will have a tough time expaining the departure of a player who has become the symbol of Barca around the world. On top of it, Puyol is a wonderful defender. He may not be the most tecnically brilliant defender in the world, but he one of the most effective. And the spirit he brings to this side cannot be replicated by anyone else.

Robinho is a player whom barcelona were interested in. He is seen as a good cover for our attacking talent. But again I doubt heavily; he has a history of under achieving and I doubt his tenure at Barca will be any less. But there is a high chance of we going for him, especially with Assistant Coach Tito Vilanova empahsising on the possibility of a January signing. Meanwhile there are reports emerging from team doctors that Gabi Milito is closing on fitness and he is expected to join his team mates in practice within weeks.

Agreed. The spirit that Puyol brings to the squad cannot be replicated by anyone else nor could he replicate it anywhere else. FCB's slogan is "Mes que un Club" and it is. It's a Catalan institution, very few Catalan players have played outside of Catalunya especially those who worked their way through the Barca system. I can't imagine Puyol ever being willing to not only leave Barca, but Catalunya as well. His intensity and spirit as a player reflects his love and devotion for Catalunya. (Need I remind you the famous foto of him kissing his Catalan flag captains arm band) Som un!
