Deportivo asking too much for left back Filipe

Asked about the rumours linking Deportivo La Coruña left back defender Filipe Luis (23) with Barcelona, the player's agent Jose Carlos Lages has said in an interview with Galicia regional newspaper El Ideal Gallego that Deportivo is at this moment asking too much for the Brazilian:

"Our wish is that the player can leave if Barcelona offers 10 million euro°, because I think that's a good fee for the transfer. The club already informed us that they want to sell him, but for a price that is not in accordance with the current market. They are asking too much."

Catalan sports paper El Mundo Deportivo claims that Deportivo president Augusto César Lendoiro will return from Mexico later today and that the negotiations could be picked up tomorrow (read more
here). Deportivo is at this moment asking 15 million euro°, while Barcelona is offering 8 million euro°. Also because they have the support of the player, Barcelona is confident to close a deal. A Barcelona youth player, possibly Barcelona wing attacker Pedro (21), could be included in the final agreement.

Real Madrid making all clubs hesitant to sell for market value.

Well in italy reports say torino would sell Alessandro Rosina for aprox 5 mil euro... this is a crazy price, but he'll probably be bought by one of the top4 italians...
He could be a great signing though... he can play allover the midfield especially left wing...

yeah.. thats right James..
but im relaxed..
this deal is just a matter of time, i think we have no contenders for this deal.
i think filipe will be the first player we sign this season.
then after that, if the reports from insider guy is real, it should be zhirkov.
the forward (star player) will have to wait a little longer.. will it be villa, ribery, or ibra it depends on which club wants to lower their price first.
and the mascherano deal, maybe it will be quicker than we thought..
i think the last deal will be the striker.

Blame Madrid Blame Madrid....these Madrezzzzzz just poison the transfer market this summer..every club is asking big money for their players. And who will suffer in the end big clubs like barca.

Buy Zhirkov for that position. CSKA will accept 17-20M.

I think that barca won't buy zhirkov after he buys filipe and its soooo sad because zhirkov is like another daniel alves with great crosses and shots... After I watched brazil in the recent days, I prefer barca signs robihno and I think he is much better than ribery... so I think Barca's transfer will be Filipe, Robinho, Bruno Alves but I still don't know who's gonna be our new striker!!! If he's not Villa, Ibra, Forlan or benzema then who's our CF?!!!
