Mascherano, Chygrynskiy, Mata: Two out of three

Catalan sports paper Sport that Barcelona has decided to sign two more players during the current transfer window.

Barcelona sports director Txiki Begiristain, Barcelona director of football Raul Sanllehí and Barcelona sports vice-president Rafael Yuste would have held a meeting yesterday morning in the Four Seasons hotel in Seattle to discuss the further transfer negotiations.

Three names would have been on table: Liverpool defensive midfielder and Argentine international Javier Mascherano (25), Shakhtar Donetsk defender and Ukrainian international Dmytro Chygrynskiy (22) and Valencia left wing attacker and Spanish international Juan Mata (21) .

With Shakhtar having been eliminated in the Champions League yesterday, Chygrynskiy seems at this moment the most likely transfer, although Barcelona would only want to pay a maximum of 15 million euro. Mascherano would still be an option. Barcelona officials reportedly think there's still a chance to sign the Argentinian despite the current asking price of 50 million euro. Regarding Mata, Barcelona is waiting for the outcome of the renewal talks planned between the player and his club tomorrow.

Mascherano is impossible, why are they still investing time in that? Now that Benitez already lost Xabi, no way he will allow this to happen.

yuti said...

All three seem very difficult because they have long contracts. Let's see what Txiki can do...

Let' shop they're just producing some smoke and come up with some surprises.

I think a lot will depend on the trust Guardiol puts in Henrique/Muniesa (Fontas) on the one hand, and Jeffren/Pedro on the other. Th promotion/loan decisions (that should be taken soon) will learn us a lot.

i would say mascherano is unlikely nd coz hes a lil bit old but not that old if we put marquez in DM nd smetimes pique it would be k so we should get mata nd chygrynsky i wanna c those 2 players in barcelona as fast as possible coz they r so gd! forca barca!

Oh well, that's another 30-50 millions then, over 100 millions spent this summer combined.

refter said...

Agreed with anony, where are they getting the money? Chygyrnskiy and Mata, the two cheapest options of those three will at the very least (15+20) be 35 millions (and honestly, you can't see even that happen: 20+25 would be more realistic).

I'm worried they're spending a lot wiht the elections coming up and joining the race organized by Florentino.

Areign said...

so...chrgy and mata... i woulda prefered mata and hernanes but... w/e

_barcelonista_ said...

i vote for mata and mascherano..

Anonymous said...

How was Henrique today? BTW I vote for Chyhrynskiy & Mata. Another mid fielder to back up Xavi & Iniesta PLEASE.

Anonymous said...

Henrique was fine, but he played at RB. I think we should only get one new player, either Chygrynsky or Mata...not both. We don't need to be spending like Madrid,

agree with anonymous

CB I'm not sure if Henrique is really starting to adapt, but we do need to strengthen and that should definitely be a CM & a Winger/Striker.
I would personally go for Hernanes, Mata & Chyhrynskiy. one off-game doesn't make him a bad player guys. Come on!!!

nook said...

I think Anonymous is really care and serious about our club.Don't berate him.I alway see him every blog.

I think the best job for Barca is buying just one world class player, and the best option is Cesc. Even if we have to pay 50 milions euro. Midlefield will be covered, Cesc or Iniesta can play on the left, sometimes as defensive midlefield when we need a goals. He is maybe expensive, but he has a Barca blood, he's young and have experience playing with Iniesta and Xavi. Cesc will be a future of Barca and he's surrely the best option, better than Mascerano, Ribery or anybody else. Yaya is better player than Mascerano so we don't need thinking about Argentinian. We have very good players in defansive, so buying some expensive player is not needed this year, maybe next year because Puyol is getting older.
So Laporta,please invest hole money for Cesc, forget a Mata, Chirgynsky and another players who are good, but not a worldclass.
Imagine this team which have many solution of rotating with world class players.

I think that after the Seattle game, Pedro and Jeffren have shown that we can have faith in them as replacement wingers. To me, Chygrynskiy is the best option. Henrique can be Alves's back-up at RB and Pique, Muniesa, and Chygrynskiy can take over from Puyol and Marquez.

fcbee said...

The only problem, besides a financial one probably, of Anony's case is that when you replace Henry by iniesta on the left, you could lose quite a lot of goals there. Cesc won't compensate that and it's still to be seen how Zlatan wil fit in.

Amir said...

not mata please we got great wingers upcoming pedro and jeffren....
though mata is a grat player...
macherano is a must!!
and i know we can register one or two players in january to play in the champions league can we do it with Chygrynskiy ?....
anyone knows?

Anonymous said...

Pep, any updates on Mata or Chyhrynskiy saga???

fcb_india said...

pedro and jeffren can cover for a few matches.. but i m worried if there is a need for a long time... i would love to see CESC in Barca.. and he can solve many problems of the team...i cant see the need of spending around 40 million for masche for just 2 months... rest of the time we have yaya, keita and busquets for that position...
Laporta pls bring back Cesc..he also wants that i m sure

Even up to a few days ago, I would be against this Chygrenskiyzxweyshkstlsqn's transfer, but Marquez's new injury reminded me how he has to go back to the medics after each breeze from the other players' farts in the locker room! The guy is fragile and he is only getting older. So much for idiots counting on him for filling the DM spot!

So even if Chyg wasn't playing in the CL, he should still be bought and play in the La Liga so that others can be fresh for the CL games.

I'm just really hoping for Milito to return. Then his fragile ass with Marquez's fragile ass could add up to 1.5 CB!

stop suggesting fabregas, there is no way he will be sold this year, next year.... maybe

why is everyone so obsessive over buying all of these young players?
its fine to buy a few older players, just as long as they can give us 3-4-5 years, and they add experience

barca nike said...

forget about Masche he's out of the list.

Anonymous said...

Most likely Cesc won't come this summer, but next year there are presidential elections and I'm pretty sure Cesc will be number one transfer target for candidates when election drama really kicks off.

luimac said...

OK my vote is Mascherano and Mata. Those 2 positions are what we really need. Keita and Toure leaving so Mascherano would be a more secure and better option as CDM than Busquets. Mata can come in handy when it comes to FWDs rotation. If ibra needs rest, henry can go to middle and Mata in left, or viceversa.. There are a LOT of games to play after all.
Also people need to stop this "lets not spend like RM" BS. Like it or not Real Madrid has bought MONSTER players... if by some miracle this players put in the same team develop chemestry fast.. im sorry to say RM would be a force to be reckon with. If Barca for the sake of "not spending like RM" dont get the players we need, we might let the momentum we have go. FUCK NOT SPENDING LIKE MADRID, get the quality players we need IF we need them. Except for Ribery.. we do kinda need him but 100+mill is just stupid.
I am not saying we should copy or spend for the sake of spending.. BUT staying at the top is hard and we shouldnt let this great barca era slip away from us for something as stupid as people talking trash and comparing barca and real madrid.
