Forlan candidate to replace Eto'o

Madrid sports tabloid Marca claims that Barcelona is interested in Atlético Madrid forward and Uruguayan international Diego Forlán (29).

Barcelona manager Josep Guardiola would want to sign Forlán, whose contract with Atlético expires in 2011, if Barcelona forward Eto'o leaves at the end of this season.

With the permission of Barcelona sports director Txiki Begiristain, Barcelona would already be putting funds aside to make a bid for Forlán in the summer. The Uruguayan striker is said to have a buyout clause of 36 million euro°.

would be very dumb.. isn't a bad player but hasn't got what it takes to lead the barça attack. If eto'o should leave and ribery comes why don't we place henry as center forward.. Although I prefer that eto'o and henry stay!

Buyout clause of 36M and they'll start negotiating if Barca offer 18M. As Jordy just said not a bad player, but he can't replace Eto'o. Henry is 31 yo but he's in a good shape at this moment, next season...who knows. It would be unfair to sell him especially if Barca win treble. At least, he deserves to play another year at Barca. I'd prefer to see him playing Larsson's role. And most important, he's much better than Larsson.
I'd sell Henry only if the offer is right.
Eto'o will renew and Laporta is keen to see him next season at Barca. In the end, don't forget Bojan!

Good player, but come one now. He is 29 years old, would probably be 30 by the time he wears a barca shirt. Complete waste of money. Maybe if he was a free transfer.

I really think Kun is too small to play the striker role.
