maybe it would be wise to wait until the EC is finished?

Or until we have a deal with Sevilla on Alves...

Barca is losing Alves by ManUtd so I'm scared it's forgotten story. It was stupid chasing Keita before Alves because Yaya plays on the same position and he's better player. Let's just hope that Barca earns money by selling Zambrotta to buy Dani Alves. BTW blog is great and I really enjoy to share my opinion with the other fans of Barca. Greetings from Croatia!

According to Gazzetta dello Sport and Sky Sports Tv the fee for this transfer would be €9m + €2m if Milan finish top 3 in Serie A next season.

Not that bad after all if this is true.

Thanks, greetings back to Croatia!

When I heard it was like Barcelona asking 10 and Milan offering 8, that was exactly what I thought: they should go for "9 + an easy 2" (and Milan top-three is normally an easy 2). And if Milan would want to close the deal before the Euro, I would have add another 1 million for in case Italy would win the Euro.

The Catalan papers will probably have the right fee if Barcelona confirms the deal. They have a really good network, better than the Italian papers have in the Italian clubs.
