Hleb could be included in Ashley Young bid

British tabloid The Daily Star claims that Barcelona is ready to make a 30 million euro° bid for Aston Villa winger Ashley Young (23) (read more here).

Barcelona's technical has reportedly been following the English player during the past season and would now prepare a concrete offer. Barcelona might try to include Barcelona attacker and Belarusian international Alexander Hleb (28) in the deal.

A Spanish source is quoted by the tabloid as saying: "Young has been impressive all last year with Villa and at times with England. He finished the season well and he is a player that Guardiola likes.

He has been following him for a while and we hope that he will want to come to a club as big as Barca and move to Spain. There has been no contact yet but the club are firming up their plans at the moment."

forget it. no way. but i really hope they'll sell hleb to be able to pay more than just 35 mio euro.

how will they buy 3-4 "good" players for just 35 mio? they have to sell someone. mascherano or A. Young or D.Villa and the transfer period is over for us.

I love how the article says "Barca Might try to include hleb in the deal" Like we trying to pull a fast one or something...LOL

Fuckin hleb and gudy are useless

Charles said...

this is proof that Barca is turning into Real of Flo Perez. Hleb is a million times better than Ashley Young damn it....

Fabiano said...

No, Charles, this is not a proof, it's a report by a British tabloid.

Some of you guys seem to have no idea of what's going on in the sports media. Don't be naive - rumours only become facts when the contract is signed.

he's 1 of the underrated guys in UK.he is way better than hleb just for all of you to know.ive been following him since 2 years and he is highly rated for me.just like messi.dribbles long distance,shooting talent,stepovers n more

i dont feel like signing in

Anonymous said...

Please not this guy he looks like he has osteoporosis when he is dribbling and never lifts his head up. He's also very highly rated in UK so I don't know where Amir is coming from.

Lol at when has Messi ever done stepovers? He'd probably trip over the ball if he tried.

Messi108 said...

Even Hleb is better quality than this guy.
Also.....very little chance of him fitting in well with La Liga and the Barca style of short passing football.

Waste !!

he is one of those classic wingers were they are the fast players who run down the field and cross the ball into the centre of the box for the striker. just like what dan r said, barca needs more of a winger who can score goals.
young is great for formations like 4-4-1 but im not too sure if he would be that good in barca.

JR said...

Young is not a pure winger at all, he has great technical skills and scores goals, opposed to what most of you here are saying (which makes me think most of you have never seen him play either). And he's a far better player than Hleb, and a far better goalscorer as well. Don't forget Young is playing for Aston VIlla and not for one of the top teams that score 2 goals per game.

I wouldn't mind him on the team t all, although for the moment I think there are other options we should look at first.

Kxevin said...

Theo Walcott with ball skills? I'll take it. I can't see Villa being crazy enough to do the deal, though. If they want to reach that next level, you need a winger like that. When you talk about a left wing who can outrun everyone down the pitch and lay in a cross for a striker, that's the kind of bus-breaking tactic that would work with Henry as the central striker, someone with sufficient pace to get on the end of said cross.

Marws said...

Barca keep Hleb. We just bought him last season. He has just had some truble adjusting to Barca, but I'm confident that he will be better this year. Just like Henry. Henry was better this year than last year. Give hleb some time.

SJP said...

everyon saying we need more depth in midfield then saying we should sell hleb and guddy? guddy, although i really like him as a professional has probably had his time at barca, hopefully he'll go to EPL and do well. hleb? needs more time but if e can be used for transfer then maybe. as for young, i don't reckon alt of you have seen him play too much, for the past two season he has been one of te EPL most consistent players, for 15mil be would be very good buy, he's quicker than messi, has good technique and give him a striker like llorente and it will rain goals at the nou camp! only issue is price and better options.

LeónDragón said...

know ash young a time now and think he's the bomb.
when he fits in well you don't need a defending leftwinger, because he keeps the opponents busy

OLALEKAN said...

hleb is better than this guy. i follow the EPL a lot, he is not a barca material, pls this is just a joke.

"Can't Judge ashley young until he actually plays with us, it's very stupid to say he's not barca material when the man has never even played with us, only judging from where he plays somewhere else?? Look at guardiola. im going to admit even i thot we weren't going nowhere with him, many people did, and now look at us. Just like what people say about robinho. it's better to think before you speak sometimes.
