The current financial situation of FC Barcelona

The current financial situation of FC Barcelona

The change of club presidency and the success of the Spanish national team recently in the World Cup 2010 have put FC Barcelona on the front page of newspapers all over the world.

SENNA: “IT’S A HONOUR

The midfielder, who is in Ireland with his Villarreal teammates, dreams with Barça.

They hadn’t told me anything at the moment, but the fact that they’re thinking about signing me is very flattering

Cesc will wear Guardiola’s #4.

From a surplus of 11,1 million euros to a deficit of 77.1 million euros.

Maradona leaves Argentina’s national team.

Florentino will pay 28 million euros + variables for Maicon.

The Front: Sport (28.07.2010)

The directive works with two transfer options:

1 – CESC + CANTERA

Guardiola accepts Cesc as the only signing of this summer and would complete the squad with canteranos.

2 – SIGNING A MIDFIELDER + A FORWARD

Özil or Mata and Capoue are in the top of the targets list.

Faus presented the results of the audit: 77 million euros deficit. The club’s debt exceed 442 million euros.

That audit could end in the court.

Happy Birthday, Pedro!

Happy Birthday, Pedro!

Senna will be the defensive cover

Senna will be the defensive cover

According to a report in Catalan sports daily El Mundo Deportivo, Villareal’s pivot and former Spanish international Marcos Senna (34) is the elected and preferred player for the defensive midfielder void left by the departure of Yaya Toure to Manchester City. Senna fits Barca’s profile as he is experienced and cheaper, and also allows Barca to allocate more money to the signing of Cesc.

Senna’s arrival will depend on whether Fabregas signs for the club. Although without having a direct link, the arrival of the Hispano-Brasileño would be linked to the arrival of the Catalan, mainly for economic reasons.

The Highlights: Spain 3-1 England, UEFA U-19 European Championship

Bojan: “I can play on the wing”

Bojan: “I can play on the wing”

In an interview with Catalan RAC1, FC Barcelona striker Bojan Kirkic stated that he is a ‘multipurpose’ forward—meaning he can play in every position involving the attack. Barca coach Pep Guardiola is known for his value of versatility—a characteristic Bojan possesses. Pep asked Bojan last season to work on the wing in addition to being a traditional number  ’9′ and clearly the ‘cantero’ was ready for it.

“I think that I demonstrated it at the end of last season.” “The míster [Guardiola] used me on the wing, not as a winger, but with mobility on the sides,” Bojan stated yesterday live on the program ‘TU Diràs’ of RAC1, aware that his options are extended now by exchanging with David Villa to the centre.
