Srna agent confirms Barcelona contacts

Asked about the new rumours linking Shakhtar Donetsk right back defender and Croatian international Darijo Srna (27) with a move to Barcelona (read more here), the player's agent Damir Stimac confirmed in an interview with Croatian newspaper Jutarnji list that there have been contacts two months ago but said that a deal is now unlikely:

"Yes, Barcelona wants him, it is not a new story. Some talks took place at the beginning of June, but now there are only 12 days left before the end of this transfer window so I think that it's not very realistic to think that he will now move to Barcelona.

Too many things have to be agreed, like his wage, as he is big player and he should earn at least 4 or 5 million euros per season. But it's well-known that taxes in Ukraine are only 18 per cent, a lot lower than in Spain or England. But if a transfer happens, than my prediction is that he will rather move to an Eglish club than to Barcelona. We are talking about a club, which is right now selling a right-back and the coach is just in love with Srna's style of play."

A club which is right now selling a right back.... Maybe Arsenal have made offers?

He would be talking about Chelsea (Bosingwa could be out). Guess Arsenal can't pay him anyway.

Vermaalin , the new arsenal defender..HOW IN THE WORLD DID TXIKI OR GUARDIOLA NOT HAVE AN EYE ON HIM?!??! The guy is ROCK SOLID ! But im sure even ifferdinand , vidic , chellini came pep will still outcast them

We want defenders that can pass. Not just defenders

Vermaelen is another Senderos believe me. I'm Belgian so I know. No way he is good enough for us, and at Arsenal he'll soon show his lack of skills.

I'm belgian, vermaelen isn't really that good, he makes a lot of positioning errors (something what is current when defenders fail in barça)
what worries me more is that there weren't ANY transfer rumours today (except some poor story about Chygrynskiy)

i very much believe in azpillicueta, imagine in a few years Cesar Az-Pique-Fontas-Muniesa
Iniesta-Busquets-Fabregas
Pedro-Rochina-Bojan

Just wondering guys

I think it is more important with a central defender who is great in the air and can both defend and score from set pieces. It also gives Marquez and Pique the chance to play DM when needed. A player like Pique would be good. Puyol can grab the RB role when needed. He is an excellent RB, had Ronaldo in his pocket in the CL final. How hard can it be to sign a good central defender?

inieeeeeeeeeeeeesta, how about...

Cesar Az-Pique-Fontas-Muniesa
Dos Santos-Busquets-Fabregas
Messi-Rochina-Iniesta

inieeeeeeeeeeeeesta said...

Style said...

He's quite good in FM :P - I haven't heard much about him in the real world though.

4 or 5 Million Euros? What is this Agent smoking? That's what Puyol is earning. No way we gonna pay some remote right back that much money in his first season. Not even Toure earned or earns that much - and he has proven to be a Key Player for us. Get the hell outta here. Why is it that every Agent in the business is trying to rape us? I rather have Eboue than Srna. We are talking about a back up for Alves here.

Bruno Alves or nothing please.
he is so good in the air,has great technique and enough experience to play for barca,can score from set pieces.
Chygrynsky is way overrated by pep!
it's so stupid we pay 25M for him.

rahul said...

is barca some charitable organisation or centre where ppl pay w/e they want to for our players and demand w/e they want and get it for players we want. seriously i hope this txiki goes such a moron how teh hell is he teh sporting director reatrd man. paying 16.5m euros for a completely unproven player. anyways as long txiki is there barca wud get raped, mugged, n go bankrupt.
