Reading between the lines on Setién's comment about Barcelona search for a striker, it is clear that the Manager have very little confidence on the club pulling this off.




Barcelona's pursuit for a striker is turning to be a big joke in footballing circles, as usual. Gone are those days, when Barcelona goes and gets things done. Now under this management, we make a huge amount of noise and get done absolutely nothing.


Under Laporta, we used to get to know of signings when the club is almost sure of on-boarding the player. Nowadays, I guess we don't do things like that. Even before our Sporting Director is thinking, the reports are leaked to the Catalan media, who plays it up, drives the cost up and technology makes it difficult to get stuff done.

True to the nature of every Transfer window, especially when it's coming to an end, too many things are happening at a frantic pace. The supposed Rodrigo deal may not happen, the youngster Carles Pérez may still continue and a number of players other than these could move out also.


There is no dearth of news surrounding Barcelona. Who all could be linked in for a move in next? Maybe a move-out!



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.

It's not a secret that Barcelona is facing a managerial crisis. Day by day, Valverde is proving a misfit and the active rumors are that the club is looking for his replacement.



Who could be the Next Manager of FC Barcelona?

Barcelona fans are getting fed up with Ernesto Valverde on a daily basis. The only reason why the clown even has the job is the little Argentinian wizard, Lionel Messi. If Messi keeps doing stuff like what he has done against Celta Vigo, we may never see an end to the torturous regime of Ernesto Valverde. That's a scary thought in itself!


There is news coming out about Barcelona actively looking for a person to replace Valverde. The board in itself is struggling to decide on the kind of personality. It appears certain Board members are keen on someone who has been with the Club whereas others believe we need someone with not connection to shake the team fully.

Neymar transfer Deal has his a huge roadblock and many wonders whether it's the end?



Neymar - Barcelona Transfer Saga hit Latest Road Block! Will this be Solved?

Barcelona's pursuit to bring back the Brazilian superstar Neymar back to the club has hit the biggest roadblock so far. This deal or expected deal was supposed to hit multiple roadblocks but this latest one looks have the capacity to kill the deal altogether.


Real Madrid's continued stealthy pursuit of Neymar is being said as one of the most important reasons related to the latest issue. It has to be seen whether Barcelona and especially Messi is able to get past this roadblock. Messi's role would be extremely important in solving this.

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.

The latest rumours suggest Barcelona going all out for bringing back Neymar, that means Griezmann could be headed to PSG.



Is Surprisingly Neymar Heading to Barcelona, and Griezmann to PSG? #Barca #FCBarcelona #Neymar

The 'Griezmann Transfer to Barcelona' saga is taking new twist every passing day. The latest news till now was the renewed interest of Manchester United to get Griezmann into their roles. Now that makes three big teams fighting for the Frenchman's signing.


Those major teams are FC Barcelona, Paris St.Germain and Manchester United. Out of this, it is very clear what is Griezmann's favorite destination. That has to be our own FC Barcelona.

Despite the not-so-great way of his tranfer from the club; the Club, Fans and the Player himself is keen on the transfer back to Barcelona.




It was billed as the great betrayal - Neymar's exit from Barcelona. It left the club completely in shatters. I still remember how we felt lifeless for the major part of the season in 2017-18. It was not the highest profile exit from the club, that title will go to Luis Figo. But this left a bit of bitter taste.


What made it so difficult to digest was the way it transpired. After many of teammates, especially Pique re-assuring fans that Neymar won't leave; out of the blue, it happened. The reasons were clear, but still, the way it happened, made it difficult for fans to digest those reasons.

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.


May 22, 2019


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?

May 21, 2019


The latest reportys emerging from England and Netherlands suggest, Barcelona is close to complete the signing of their high priority target Matthijs de Ligt very soon.




In my last article I wrote 'Why Barcelona should make De Ligt signing top Priority?', and within 24 hours of that going live, it appears things have turned decisively in favor of Barcelona. The latest reports emerging from England suggest that Liverpool may no longer be interested in securing the Dutch youngster's service.


That is good news for Barcelona as there is one less competition. Now Barcelona will try to lure him back as one of his suitors have dropped, but at the same time will use De Jong to bring the Dutch to Barcelona.

If Barcelona needs to strengthen their squad for Europe, they need to sign Matthijs de Ligt as early as possible. This is what he brings to a Club like Barcelona.




Matthijs de Ligt is one name which has been linked with Barcelona numerous time this season. Barcelona have very clearly made their intention of getting de Ligt in their books. The hestitation has been from the player's side. Many a ex-Barca, ex-Ajax players have sounded out Barcelona to go full throttle for the current Ajax Captain.


De Jong's signature was supposed to make it easier to sign him. Even though he and his agents have not ruled out the signing, we may see a bidding war which Barcelona, unfortunately, have to participate.



Even Though this appeared remote, now this could really happen. Barcelona has always made clear their ambition of luring their favorite son back to Barcelona. The Players, Fans and the Board are all waiting to see this happen.




When Guardiola arrived at Barcelona, he was a less know entity as a coach. But he was one player who could be talked as Mr.Barcelona. Laporta showcased his genius by bringing him up from the 'B' team. That too withstanding the pressure of one brigade which actually wanted Mourinho as the coach. just Imagine what would have Mourinho done to Messi, xavi and Iniesta? That was a close miss!


When he arrived for the first time, Barcelona was in kind of dire straits. We were trophyless in two seasons and had to suffer the humiliation of giving 'Pasillo' to their arch-rivals Real Madrid. Puyol later described that it wasn't something he liked but was a necessary gesture as a sportsman. That was our Captain, I still remember how he shouted at his players to the line-up and give Madrid that damn 'Guard of Honour'.

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.

I did warn you all that this would happen, Despite the repeat of last season's humiliating loss, Valverde has enough backing in the Board, Dressing Room, and Social Media




They all kept quiet for sometime, but then it was natural. If they had dared to even profess their love so soon for Valverde after the 4-0 defeat, they would have been obliterated in social media. So they all waited for that recovery victory against Getfe. And the moment, that is achieved, we now have a flurry of ValverdeStay cry.


I wrote about this two days back, detailing why those hoping for Valverde to leave is living in fool's paradise - Valverde to remain as Barcelona Coach. Sadly I am already being proven right.

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.


Jan 12, 2018



The recent signings of Philippe Coutinho and Yerra Mina have significantly strengthened Barcelona's squad, but there seems sure to be even more transfer activity at the Nou Camp over the coming months.


Gerard Deulofeu, Rafinha, Carles Alena, Dennis Saurez and Sergi Roberto are amongst the players linked with a move away from the club, opening the door for even more incomings during 2018.


We look at four players who manager Ernesto Valverde may add to his squad this year.
