Barcelona watch Wilson Palacios

As Yaya Toure is almost certain to leave Barcelona, it’s logical that the club will look to find a replacement in the same position, according to Catalan Sports paper El Mundo Deportivo.

Compatability Issues

Compatability Issues

Come the start of next season, it appears Barca will have a brand new forward line, with Leo Messi set to be the only survivor from our current set of strikers to hold onto his starting place. What with the arrival of David Villa and the club’s obvious intent to swap Zlatan Ibrahimovic for Fernando Torres, it seems it will be all change when it comes to our attacking options next term. But do we really need to ship out the Swede in favour of the Spaniard?

32 MILLION EUROS FOR TOURÉ

City closes the deal and they will sign him after the medical revision, which will be made this weekend.

He has won seven titles in three years and his transfer will bring a 20 million euros profit.
