Barça B: Deal with Longas (Zaragoza)

Aragón regional sports paper Equipo claims that Barcelona has found an agreement with Zaragoza midfielder Antonio Longás (23), who would join Barcelona B for the next two years.

Barcelona would now be negotiating with second division team Zaragoza and it is expected the deal could be closed and announced in the coming days.

Longás played the 2006-2007 season with Zaragoza in the Primera División and was last season loaned out to second division team Tenerife. Despite offers from several second division teams, the Spanish midfielder has chosen to accept the offer from third division team Barcelona B after good talks with the Barcelona technical staff, who left the possibility open for the player to be promoted to the first team.

After being told that his current club doesn't really count on him for next season, Longás asked to be able to leave on a free transfer, which was rejected by Zaragoza. Longás' contract with Zaragoza expires next year and the club wants to receive a transfer fee. Besides that, Zaragoza would want to have the right to buy the player back or to receive a percentage of the transfer fee if the player leaves Barcelona.

If you look at the names of their squad, something went terribly wrong. They had a team to play for position 6 to 8 or something.
