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.

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.

With Barca capturing Philippe Coutinho at a record £142 Million Pounds, the future of many promising Barca youngsters and fringe players are at stake. There could be an exodus of players come this summer inorder to balance the book at FC Barcelona.


5 Barca Youngster who could push for a transfer next summer - AllAboutFCbarcelona.com

With the conclusion of Coutinho deal there is expected to be a substantial number of clear-out at Barca come this summer. There are some senior players along with young players who will be either forced or will prefer to mve out of Camp Nou. Of the senior players Mascherano is expected to move to China as he is very much near the end of his career (then looking at Paulinho situation it may be too early to say), Aleix Vidal is another player who is expected to move out even though I wouldn't be very much surprised if the club decides to retain. He could be still a good squad player, one who could play in multiple role. That may be sometimes under-appreciated, but still would have an heavy impact in keeping the squad fresh for bigger matches.


Here in this article we take a look at the five youngsters of Barca who could be making a move away from Camp Nou as Coutinho arroval seriously threatens their chances:

Amidst all the noises surrounding Coutinho transfer saga, Umtiti rumours should worry Barca most!


Samuel Umtiti has been linked with a host of European Clubs this Winter Transfer window. Barca seems to be preparing a new deal to tie down the Frenchman at Camp Nou

Since the opening of the Winter transfer window, there is only one name in the Barca circles - Philippe Coutinho. All the news in one way or other is linked to the Brazilian and daily there are tons of rumours related to it. Some claim that their news are authentic; but then we saw how trustful they were in the Summer transfer window. Amidst all these noises, some other rumours related to Umtiti is worrying everyone. At first it looked like someone's imaginative thinking but lately it appear to be taking a life on it's own. It actually doesn't make sense, but Barca fans and supporters are like the "A cat bitten once by a snake dreads even rope"; especially after seeing how the Neymar saga evolved rapidly.

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.

Barcelona may have lost Neymar in the summer transfer window, but the Blaugrana are showing no signs of missing the Brazil international forward at the moment. Barca are four points clear at the top of La Liga after 11 rounds of matches and eight ahead of bitter rivals Real Madrid. Ernesto Valverde’s side are at the top of Champions League Group D and are playing pretty decent football. Neymar who?

When you make the right decision, it doesn't really matter what anyone else thinks. Caroline Kennedy

Barca completed the biggest sale in footballing universe when PSG decided to spend 220 million of their Oil money to purchase Neymar's release clause. I still can't get over that amount! 220 Million! Can you believe that? Three seasons back we were rigorously arguing why 100 Million for a footballer in pure nonsense. If that was nonsense, then what is this! God Knows! Only thing I know is we live in a completely screwed up World. Funny part is, now I wonder how much will be Messi be worth if we put him in the market. We better not give any ideas. The management urgently needs to re-look at Messi's release clause of 300 Million. Some idiot may come up with a bid! Now looking at the middle east rivalry between UAE and Qatar, will Manchester City take a shot at 300 Million? Who knows!

Barca looking to Bid for Oriol Romeu

- Oriol Romeu Playing in Barca Jersey -

It is far better to foresee even without certainty than not to foresee at allHenri Poincare

So much have changed for Barca this season, especially at the midfield. The midfield which was once the source of everything good at Barca have suddenly turned into a quagmire. With Iniesta's absence it has practically become non-existent; prompting questions whether it was wise to let Xavi leave rather than keeping him still the midfield transition was on-going. It wasn't anything like this last season; the trio of Rakitic, Iniesta and Busquets was solid behind the fearsome front trio. Then what changed this season - the answer is pretty simple and clear for everyone - Sergio Busquets. The Spanish midfielder, whose place in starting eleven was never a point of discussion suddenly has become the weak-link (Sergio Busquets form is Worrying Everone at Barca). Add to that the fact that Rakitic is a completely different kind of midfielder compared to Xavi; we have a practically non-existent midfield in the absence of Iniesta.

  • 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.
