Güiza option to replace Eto'o


Catalan radio station RAC 1 claims that Barcelona could be interested in Fenerbahçe forward and Spanish international Daniel 'Dani' Güiza (28).


Barcelona manager Josep Guardiola has reportedly asked one of his players at the Confederations Cup about Güiza. It is believed that Guardiola wanted to know more about the human qualities of the player and if he could fit in the Barcelona squad.

Güiza, who signed with Fenerbahçe last summer on a four-year deal (read more here), would want to leave this summer because of his bad relationship with the Turkish club and the recent dismissal of Fenerbahçe manager Luis Aragonés.

Catalan sports paper El Mundo Deportivo claims that following the player's performance in South Africa, Zenit St. Petersburg and Manchester City have made bids of 14 million euro° and 12 million euro°respectively. Spanish clubs Valencia and Atlético Madrid are also thought to be interested.

Good start

Let's get things back to the usual :)

I don't want Guiza!! I hope this isn't what Laporta meant when he said we had "other options" besides Villa. Guiza is not a replacement for Villa and he's certainly not a replacement for Eto'o. At Getafe he scored 9 goals in 32 games and then 17 goals in 35 games. Sure, at Mallorca he scored 29 in 42, but this year he only scored 14 goals in 42 games. He'd make a good backup, but he's not a number 9 and he's definitely not better than Bojan.

Hopefully this isn't a serious option.

Now someone disagree with me!!!

I LOVE YOU FCBTRANSFERS!!!

If not Villa, Llorente would be a better option than Guiza, period. Llorente might not be perfect to be a Barca '9' today, but atleast he has got the qualities required to be so, which need to be strengthened of course. And what more??? He will be a very good target man for Alves and Filipe(!!!) Get Llorente, send Keirri on loan for a season and I guess we are all set for next season as far as our 1st defending layer is considered :) Henry, Eto'o, Messi, Bojan, Llorente. Sounds more than good to me. Was n't there a lot of speculation during copa final linking us with Llorente? I wonder what might have happened :(

BTW I would surely want an explanation from that anonymous guy who claimed we already signed villa, fab and BASTOS! And that Filip's deal is off!!
Seems like Filipe is gonna be our first signing and also Lille agreed a bid for Bastos from Lyon which obviously means Bastos doesn't belong to Barca. Congratulations anony you have successfully finished your task of wasting some one's time. Was so hurt to even consider Filipe was not going to be part of our team after having developed so much hope on the best LB of the season joining the Champions. And wasted a LOT of time trying to get to know about Bastos, of course it can not be called entirely waste considering the fact that Bastos is a very good player and could have been a very valuable addition for us :|

if Villa fails and we can buy guiza for cheap, i'd buy him in a beat.
he can be a good back up and we dont have to break the bank.
and i like that pep "wanted to know more about the human qualities of the player". that says a lot about him.
and btw, Congratulations for the new guys! Visca el Barca.

The transfer season nightmare continues! Guiza as replacement for Eto'o??? We are not Racing Santander!

ANTI-MADRIDISTA said...

I think this would be a great transfer, i understand he's no Villa but that would be an awesome steal of a price for a back up.

Glad to see you guys writing reports again other blog sites lick balls.So, Much Respect to the contributors world wide on FC Barcelona Blog Transfer Zone you'll always have my support fellas...

Peace

Anti-Madrista you mean to say signing Guiza would be a very good bargain? NOOOO!!! He is too slow to be our striker don't you think? Leave aside him pressurizing opponent defenses, I don't think he would be able to even catch up with the killer throughs of Xavi, Iniesta and co. IMO Llorente for say 16-18 mill would be far better option

Josep "Pep" Guardiola i Sala - We are strikers who defend, we are defenders who attack, we are speed, we are strength, we are effort, we are precision, we are as one... We are Barça

Xaviniesta said...

i dont like guiza.

FC BARCA said...

Guiza is not Barça quality.

TJ said...

its sheer shame tat barca has not signed any1 till now.. Jus get done wit Luis Flippe or Andre Santos.. Also If villa thing dsnt materialize i think Guiza is a better option than Diego Forlan who will cost 20-25 Mill euro which i think is insane for player in thirtees .. 15Mileuro for Guiza wud b a gr8 deal i think..

IMO guiza is the last option, and he will be a back up. so even if we buy him we still need a first team CF, it maybe etoo again, or villa, or maybe forlan.

Anurag said...

@ANTI - backup for whom? etoo doesnt want to stay...

Anurag said...

BTW, sport says etoo will be back at the camp nou for pre season training on monday. and that the filipe deal will be closed today.

skanjos said...

guiza they must be joking.... he is not barca quality

Aussie Barca Fan said...

He would be a better option than Forlan.

What happened to the obsession with Adebayor? It looks like he could go for a fair price. Is Pep not infatuated with him anymore, or was that mere rumor as well?

10.05.2007
Copa del Rey Half final
Getafe - FC Barcelona 4:0
Goals: Casquero (37.), DANIEL GÜIZA (43. und 73.) Vivar Dorado (70.)

Don't want this guy.

buj said...

AC, I saw a BBC report that Adebayor was snapped up by MC.

IMO, I'm sure we'll get Villa as I'm sure the board will relent and pay the 50mil towards the end of the transfer season (panic buying). That would also means we'll have to forget about other signings as we won't have enough funds.
