It appears Barcelona will be finally making Rodrigo their priority signing in the winter market. His signing in all probability will be announced by the end of the day.




FC Barcelona quest for a replacement striker for the injured Luis Saurez appears to have found his logical conclusion with Rodrigo Moreno Machado. He was heavily involved with Barcelona since the opening of the winter transfer window. Once Quique Setién confirmed that he would sign a striker, his name was the most linked one.


In the match between Valencia and Barcelona at the weekend, all the attention was focussed on one person and that's Rodrigo himself. He definitely impressed Barcelona that day.

Barcelona is expected to make a signing which could surprise many! The unexpected star has come into prominence due to his familiarity with the league and other factors.




Barcelona has been searching for a replacement (better put backup) signing for the injured Luis Saurez for some time. From the time the window opened, everyone was speculating whether Barcelona will sign a striker in January. Even Barcelona's current coach, Setien is convinced of the need for signing a striker in January.


The moment the manager confirmed that he is looking for signing a striker, the rumor mills have been working a double shift. I guess we have been linked to everyone and anyone available in the market. The two major prospects that were sounded out were Rodrigo of Valencia and Lautaro of Inter Milan. These were non-starters from the beginning, but people believed in them for some reason. Now there is a new name emerging which could happen.



Arthur's future at Barcelona is under a serious cloud after he was part of two disappointing results under Quique Setién. The latest news coming out of various Barcelona outlets suggests that the coach doesn't see him as an essential part of his plans.



3 Reasons Why Arthur will be Sold by Barcelona in the Summer? #Barca #FCBarcelona #Arthur

Quique Setién, the Barcelona Coach is planning for major haul in the summer. He has been very vocal about his displeasure about the way Barcelona played in the last two matches. Unlike Valverde, he is not someone who makes the usual statement - 'Everything is Good'. He calls it the way he sees.


The displeasure was quite evident with every word he spoke after the match. He indirectly pointed fingers at certain players, even though the media got it wrong by pointing to De Jong. It was quite evident from the first substitution he made, Vidal for Arthur. The Brazilian midfielder was touted as the great successor to both Xavi and Iniesta. Unfortunately have failed to live up to any of those expectations.

Xavi Hernandez rumored decision to not accept the Barcelona Managerial Job at the moment has Slipped the Club to a Crisis. This is why Xavi may never land the Job at least in the next two year period.



Xavi Says Not to Barca Job? May be Forever! #Barca #Xavi

The recent happenings at Football Club Barcelona really showcase the kind of crisis that has engulfed the club as a whole. Within hours from reportedly confirming Xavi as the manager of Barcelona, it now appears that the Legendary Spanish midfielder has decided to pass on the opportunity at least for now. It is reported that he is right now reluctant to take the job, but is all ready to take up the reins in the Summer.


Now Barcelona is stuck in a quagmire, where there is a Coach who no one wants but will never leave, and a Managerial job which no one will take. One of the options in front of Barcelona is the signing of Pochettino but the Club and everyone associated with the club is in favor of handing control to García Pimienta, the current Barca B Team Coach.

It might be happening, Barcelona is all set to announce Xavi Hernandez as the Coach of Barcelona tomorrow. This is to be to the delight of millions of Barcelona fans who were getting fed up with Valverde in charge.




Barcelona is all set to announce Xavi Hernandez as the manager of the first team tomorrow after the Board meeting. Xavi who is currently managing the Qatari club Al Saad is reported to have met with Barcelona Sporting Director and his former teammate Eric Abidal, who expressed the club's desire to have him at the helm. Matters moved fast once the Qatari club gave a statement which indicated that they will not stand in the way.


Even though no club source has confirmed the expected appointment, the Qatari Sports Channel Bein Sports have confirmed the deal. They already have reported about the farewell meeting which he will have with his players and club management. Xavi has been at Al Saad since 2015, first as a player and then as a coach.

Ernesto Valverde terrible rein at Barcelona could be coming to end by the January 13th of 2020; that would be a huge New Year present for Barcelona fans across the world.

Barcelona is struggling to raise fund for the acquisition of Neymar. Selling of star players is an option, but then the targetted players themselves are not in line!



Barcelona Looking to Sell Star Players to Fund 150 Million Bid for Neymar

Barcelona transfer pursuit of Neymar has taken strange twits - not sure for Better or Worse. It is being reported from France that PSG has lowered its expectation from 300 Million to 180 Million. Now in the normal sense that would be a good price target for Barcelona. That target falls in Barcelona's initial assessment of 100 Million plus a couple of players.


Hold On! Don't jump the gun. While reducing the target, PSG management has made clear that they want a cash-only deal and no players included. And to make matters worse, they want the entire cash up front and not in installments. Now with all these, Will Neymar make it back to Barcelona?

Barcelona will be looking to shrug off the choker tag in Champions League this season. Will Neymar's arrival do the Trick?



Will Neymar's Arrival makes Barcelona the Favourite for Champions League?

Neymar's arrival is more or less certain, it's just a matter of 'When' now! All the news surrounding him suggest that all stakeholders have agreed in principle for his return and it's just the finer details that need to be settled. Neymar's parent's are rumoured to have already started house hunting in Barcelona.


That news more or less confirms the certainty of the deal. The club management and players have earlier itself stated that they will welcome him back with open arms. The sanction of the deal happened the moment Messi made it known to the public that he, Neymar and Saurez have a private WhatsApp group and all keep in touch on a regular basis.

Massimiliano Allegri, the Juventus coach is rumoured to be shortlisted as the next Barcelona coach. But it seems there are reservations among major players.




Valverde's future at Barcelona has been one of the hottest topics around Barcelona. After disappointing exits from Champions League and Copa del Rey, there is a huge cry for Valverde's sacking. The fans need him to be removed as early as possible, but the players and management have so far backed him.


But after the Copa del Rey final defeat against Valencia, it has become very difficult for the Board to defend his performance. Still, they are backing him and may go down together with him.

Is the deal for Matthijs de Ligt is one the verge of Collapse. Insider reports suggest the chances of not happening is more as of now!




A couple of days before we were more or less certain about Matthijs de Ligt's arrival to Barcelona. Now if we are going by the latest news emerging, the entire move could be on the verge of collapse following unreasonable demands from the player and agent.

There were reports earlier on how Barcelona and Messi are very much interested in bringing the Frenchman to the Club. Is the recent statement from MBappe, a sign of the coming move?




With the season coming to an end we will be soon officially into the transfer season. And as expected a lot of news will trickle out as genuine transfer moves. To weed out the genuine news among these would be a herculean task in itself.


When I heard this for the first time, this rumour felt too good to be true. But when I looked deep in, then it felt a genuine move. Will this happen this summer?

Barcelona may have got the prized catch which they were after for some time. Atletico Madrid striker, Antone Griezman is all set to sign for Barcelona soon at a staggering price of 125 Million Euros. Last Summer, Griezmann signed a five year deal with Atletico Madrid with a release clause of 125 Million Euros.


There were speculations then only, why he could join Barcelona next season and the contract extension was done to make sure that Atletico Madrid receives a fair price for the faith they had in him. Barcelona is expected to trigger the release clause.

Following the humiliating defeat at Anfield, there have to be some serious changes coming at Barcelona. The most important has to be the signing of players who could actually make a difference and provide Messi some respite at Barcelona. When Coutinho was signed it was done with that intention. But it never materialized!


There is a number of changes coming to Barcelona after this defeat. The future of Valverde is in serious question and now it needs to be seen who takes the reins. He cannot simply continue at the top now after spectacularly managing to destroy Barca's two title chances.

FC Barcelona will approach Liverpool with another attempt to sign Coutinho in the Winter Transfer window

The ongoing saga surrounding Barcelona's pursuit of Philippe Coutinho looks set to rumble on, with the latest developments taking a rather odd turn. New Year's Eve sent Liverpool fans into meltdown as sportswear giants Nike, who manufacture Barca's kits, advertised club shirts with Coutinho's name on the back, despite the fact that no deal has been agreed.


Coutinho was the subject of numerous bids by Barcelona last summer and he has been strongly linked with a move to Nou Camp in January.

  • Rumours have become strong about the impending transfer of Luis Saurez to FC Barcelona.
  • FC Barcelona is rumoured to have come to an agreement with the Striker for signing a 5 year Deal.

Finally Luis Suárez issued the much awaited apology for the disgraceful biting incident; it came after a lot of denial, strange excuses and may be even fooling the entire nation to stand behind him. For those who watched the incident (even in real time) there was no doubt about what happened on the night when Uruguay dumped Italy out of the World Cup; unless you were an Uruguayan! It was quite a disgraceful incident and the history of the player suggests that he is a walking danger to fellow players on the pitch. One could argue that his early struggles in his life are the reason for such a volatile character; but for the assaulted player that is not any reason for comfort. The inside story about the sudden U-Turn by the player may have a FC Barcelona dimension to it. Considering just days ago even the President of his country openly supported him, the apology came a bit too early. Am not sure how his supporters should feel about this? After all they were the only one who believed his story of "Losing balance and accidently clashing his face on to Chiellini".

Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth. Marcus Aurelius

The rumours are buzzing around about a deal between Sevilla and Barca for the potential signing of Ivan Rakitic. Catalan radio station, RAC1 has broke this story and what we are made to belive is that only few details are left to close this deal. Ivan Rakitic, who have a 40 Million buyout clause would join Barca for 15 Million + another 5 Million in bonus deal. This is made possible due to a clause in Rakitic current deal with Sevilla, which lowers his buyout clause if FC Barcelona or Real Madrid comes caling for his service. Both of them had arrived, and it is reported that the midfielder chose the Catalan giants ahead of the current UEFA Champions League winner. If the reported price is correct, then it's one hell of a grab for FC Barcelona and a huge loss for Sevilla.

A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on. Winston Churchill

Again those damn lies! It's just don't stop wouldn't it? Then this is transfer window is all about, at least for Sport and MundoDeportivo. Yesterday they were at it again; the front page was full of stories about Marco Reus arrival to Barca. This was supposed to complete in a matter of days, or so did they say. The way it was put forward, especially the ferocity made it a believable one to many. But all those dreams have just thrashed by a clear cut statement from Borussia Dortmund. One has to question whether the way the Spanish media was building up this story forced the German club to make an official statement. Dortmund's Sporting Director Michael Zorc made it crystal clear what he thought about these rumours when popped the question :

Firstly, Marco Reus has himself said he will play next season at Dortmund. And secondly, it would be of no use to make an offer because we have no intention of letting Marco go.Michael Zorc, Borussia Dortmund Director

I'm not upset that you lied to me, I'm upset that from now on I can't believe you. Friedrich Nietzsche

Now they say he is not going to join us! For weeks we have been bombarded with stories of how Barca have identified Aymeric Laporte as one of teh defensive reinforcements. Stories were broken about how the player and the FC Barcelona Futball club has reached personal agreement; how it's just a matter of time before we see the player wearing the renowned Barca jersey. Now they have a different take on all this. Why? Because Aymeric Laporte have renewed his contract with Atletic Bilbao, so did the club announced. Now the media pundits are saying that his arrival to Barca is not going to happen. one could ask why i never reported anything about this story. That's precisely because I never thought this will happen.

I hate to spread rumours, but what else can one do with them? Amanda Lear

That's the fun in all this! It doesn't have to make any sense, just being there will do. With the current state of affairs at Barca, anyone can create one, spread it like wild fire and almost make us believe that it's the truth. One have to admit the Catalonia based mediahouse, Sport is doing a good job at it. Let's admit it, we love them too. It's all fun to get up every morning with your club getting linked with a new star, the hope of endless possibility driving you crazy. The only problem is the usual disappointments that is associated with all this at the end of the transfer window. Barca fans have been subjected to that in the last two seasons. So it's better to take every rumour with a pinch of salt.

It’s déjà vu all over again.

With strong reports of David Luiz's impending transfer to PSG (this time from a much trustworthy news source) , Barca fans cannot help having that worse Déjà Vu feeling yet again. We have seen this earlier, isn't it! It happened last season, the season and will continue again this season, many a times. It's not a surprise any more, we have been trained to expect this and this alone for sometime. A week ago we were told that David Luiz transfer is all done and dusted. Of course the story was broken by Sport and some could argue I am a bit crazy to have believed this in first place. But once again, they were good at selling the dream and normally we couldn't stop ourselves from believing.
