OFFICIAL: Oleguer to Ajax

Barcelona has today officially announced the transfer of Barcelona right back and centre back defender Oleguer Presas (28) to Dutch club Ajax Amsterdam, subject to an agreement between the player and Ajax and to the medical tests.

Barcelona and Ajax have reached a pre-agreement which included the payment of a fixed transfer fee of 3 million euro° plus another possible 2,25 million euro° depending on the qualification of Ajax for the Champions League over the next three seasons.

pep's opinion:
good fee. we can discuss a lot about his football qualities but it's a simple fact that from january 2004 to june 2006, when barcelona was the best playing club team the world has so far known this century, oleguer was a regular in the team, playing the most games (together with valdes and puyol) and having therefore an important contribution in the club winning two spanish leagues, two spanish super cups and one champions league. a good player and a good catalan leaves us. thanks and good luck to him. visca el barça.

Super. Great news. Now buy Silva and Drogba and the squad is ready. :)

He was okey during the shiny years of barca playing as regular and he is not that bad as people think. He deserves all the honour from the fans. And maybe a little higher fee would be appropriate. Viscal el barca.

Great news that we sold him. Although I like him personally, his form has been very inconsistent in the past two seasons.

The whole team has been very inconsistent over the last two seasons, so then you have to sell everyone. He just didn't get a chance anymore, a game here and a game there, then you can't expect him to be on top.

Hope he has some more good years with Ajax!
