Maxwell one of two candidates for left back spot

Catalan sports paper Sport claims that Barcelona is interested Inter Milan left back defender Maxwell (27).

Barcelona wants to replace Sylvinho, whose contract expires at the end of the season, and Maxwell would be one of the two names on the target list.

Barcelona sports director Txiki Begiristain could already have sounded on the Brazilian player’s agent, Mino Raiola, to hear more about the plans of Maxwell, whose contract with Inter expires in 2010, for next season (read more

Sign him. He's not yet very old and he would make a great substitute for Eric Abidal.

who's the other candidate?
I've read something about a young talent of Gijon? wouldn't mind that neither. We can even buy the young one now and loan him out for another year to gijon. Meanwhile keep sylvinho for another year, he isn't doing bad at all.

maxwell is a good player, we may not pay above 7m. he came for free to inter and his contract expires in one year.

All talks about Philipp Lahm can be forgotten.We don't need another attacking defender.Besides,Lahm really sucks at defending...

good choice.
get him cheaper.

IIRC, Maxwell is also known for his attacking prowess right? Just watch his youtube video that Pep posted sometimes ago. All of the highlights show his attacking ability.

Its good thing if Barca decided to keep Abidal. Maxwell and Abidal will be rotated, depending on the oppositions and tactics.

yeah he's a bit slow but delivers great crosses. technically he's very good, as passing player.

but i dont think he'll join us coz he wont be happy being just a substitue and not a 1st choice LB.

He can also play left midfield. He has some versatility. The season is very long and Barca will be involved in all competitions again. He will get his chance. He won't be sub all the time. Lahm will be too expensive and it looks like we have cooled on Zhrikov. Maxwell seems a logical and cost effective option.

i like him alot,and i think we can get him if we want cos mourinho dosnt like him at all,.but dont u think this guy from gijon would be the perfect buy,concerning his age and fee?

SJP said...

i would prefer coto because of his age, i guess he is second option? buy him, let him learn of abidal, use him as sub and then after next season,if all goes well, he could be first choice and abidal on the bench. maxwell would be good addition if we cant get coto though.

maxwell will fit in Barca system very easly, but i still think that SILVINHO is doing a great job and it's stupid to let him go, if i was Txiki i'll give him another year coz he deserve credit for what he's doing and for his experience + if you want to win the triple you need a large squad and silvinho will be happy with a new deal that makes his salary less than what he have now..
