Montolivo dismisses Barcelona rumours

Italian sports paper Tuttosport claims that Barcelona is strongly interested in Fiorentina midfielder Riccardo Montolivo (24).

Barcelona would already have contacted Fiorentina to ask for the Italian player.

Asked about the rumours, Montolivo said at a press conference that a transfer seems very unlikely to him: "I want to stay at Fiorentina. I want to keep on playing with this shirt. I've heard the talk about Barcelona but I saw them play in the final of the Champions league and it didn't look as if they need another midfielder... They have the strongest midfield in Europe."

I really like this guy... Wouldn't mind seeing him in a Barça-shirt, although it probably won't happen.

He's a great player, too bad he doesn't want to join us, he would be a great addition to the midfield.

Oh and abit off-topic, just have to brag about it.. Got tickets to see Barcelona play while i'm in London! ;)

Haha so true, he sounds like he is so down to earth.

But if talented players around the world got the same impression on our midfield players, who would join us?

I think I'm gonna buy a ticket to see the Real Madrid - Toronto FC game. I might end up on T.V. because i'll be wearing my Barca shirt.

Stigsby said...

Sounds like a great plan Iason, make sure to coordinate with Omar, he's going to that match aswell.

Be sure to take pictures and send them to Pep! ;)

Stigsby said...

Perfect Pep, just send you a mail about it.

Anyone following Ibrahimovic's performace in the Sweden vs Denmark WC qualification match ?

Stigsby said...

Hehe yep, watching the El Classico of Scandinavia as we speak, Denmark ahead 1-0!

Lame... we probably just ended any hope of renewing Eto'o's contract. What a slap in the face to Eto'o... Eto'o + 25m? Please...

Nice,Sweden lost...this Montolivo guy,I think it would be hard to get any playing time in Barca...I prefer buying Hernanes or promoting Thiago or Xavi Torres
