Next season's team (3)

Catalan sports paper El Mundo Deportivo claims that Barcelona wants to sign five players this summer: a left back defender, a central defender, a defensive midfielder, a left winger and a centre forward.

They give an overview of how the "ideal" squad could look like next season.

Right wing: Messi
Back-up: Bojan, Pedro, Hleb

Nothing will change ont he right wing, although it's possible that Messi will move more to the centre during the coming season after the good results of this tactics last month.

Centre forward: Ibrahimovic
Back-up: Bojan, Eto'o

Guardiola prefers to sign Ibrahimovic (Inter) to replace Eto'o. In case a transfer of the Swede wouldn't be possible, Villa (Valencia) and Forlán (Atlético) are the alternative options. If the club doesn't find a buyer for Eto'o, the striker will stay next season.

Left winger: Ribéry
Back-up: Henry, Hleb

Barcelona still hopes to be able to sign Ribéry. Robinho (Manchester City) and Mata (Valencia) are the other names on the list. Because of his age, Henry will have less minutes next season.

i dont get if we cant find a buyer for eto'o are we still getting another striker or no?

We want to strenthen I forward line anyhow: if Eto'o goes, we plan to buy two guys, if Eto'o stays one. I think that's the plan.

Henry, Eto'o (or new guy), Messi as starters and Hleb, Bojan, Pedro as back-ups, that's just too little! We were lucky with injuries last season (except for the last month).
