Guardiola rejects transfer Bruno Alves

Catalan sports paper El Mundo Deportivo claims that Barcelona sports director Txiki Begiristain has offered Barcelona manager Josep Guardiola alternatives for Shakhtar centre-back Chygrynskiy during a meeting on Thursday evening (read more here).

The names of several central defenders and right back defenders would have been put forward, one of them being Porto central defender and Portuguese international Bruno Alves (27). Begiristain would have had several contracts with Jorge Mendes, the player's agent, and would be confident he can sign Bruno Alves if the coach gives the green light. Guardiola nevertheless rejected all alternatives.

Obviously going for Chyhrynskiy is a LOT better than going for Bruno Alves who is already 27 and gonna be past 28 this november. Moreover he's coming for no cheaper amount than Chyhggy and also his game style is totally against our philosophy. No class of any kind in that player, all the time looks to injure or jump over a player like Vidic. One good advantage of his is that he is a goal scoring threat during set-pieces which Chyggy also is

I rather go with Chignasty. If pep is adamant about this player mine as well go with his "feeling".

txiki is trying to get players and has been all summer but pep has declined most of the options given him, or asked for what turned out to be impossible transfers (ribery, cesc, etc), not knocking pep he obviously wants the best for our team, but people have been quick to slag txiki off and ignore the fact that pep has vetoed most of the deals txiki has worked on, but no-one has critiziced pep, instead blaming transfer period on txiki.

I agree with that we should only get top quality players no need to end up with another Hleb or Caceres
