FC Barcelona is in a process of rebuilding the team. Changes are expected and there are lots of improvements to be made. Before embarking on the US trip with the Spanish national team, Gerard Piqué reflected on the recent season in an interview with El Mundo Deportivo.
The coming summer was always going to be an exciting one for FC Barcelona and many other top clubs, but last week, Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund made it much more so. On the field, the German clubs provoked panic in Spain by dismantling Barcelona and Real Madrid with four goals apiece, leading many journalists to declare that the center of footballing power in Europe had moved at last. But off the field the German clubs were reshaping the transfer market as well. Bayern Munich acquired 20-year-old playmaker Mario Götze, Dortmund’s homegrown maestro and one of the world’s best young talents, as well as being strongly linked to Dortmund’s striker and four-goal hero against Madrid, Robert Lewandowski (24).
Barca enters the crucial stage of the season as the race for La Liga and the UEFA Champions League heats up. But no time is a bad time for transfer rumours, we have learned. This time around, Arsenal striker Robin Van Persie finds his name being linked to the club. And if you were to believe Daily Star, Barca’s trump card to seal the deal is not a briefcase with bundle of cash but the Dutch player’s former teammate, Cesc Fabregas. We can already see Fabregas sitting at the negotiation table with Rosell and co. trying to convince Van Persie to leave London and move into his apartment… sorry, to Barcelona. The club’s locker room , like the airport, has both arrivals and departures, and so there are two players who according to El Mundo Deportivo may be headed to Milan (Inter). Read a brief summary of all the transfer rumours after the jump.
