Barcelona: Higuain latest and Barca watching yet another star


Two in?

The latest from Spain is that Gonzalo Higuain is not quite on the verge of sealing a move to Barcelona yet.

The move has happened extremely quickly there was talk yesterday of a deal being almost done.

But Marco today suggests that €55 million will be enough for Napoli to agree to sell the player.

It’s an awful lot of cash but with the Argentine you can almost guarantee goals. He’s an incredibly powerful forward who also has great technique and it was a shock to many that Real Madrid were prepared to sell him a year ago. But with Gareth Bale coming into the club for huge amounts of money Real Madrid possibly needed to balance the books to a degree. Marca says of the move:

€55m to start negotiations for Higuaín

Barcelona’s interest in signing Gonzalo Higuaín and the Argentine’s willingness to return to Spain will not be enough to seal a deal, at least not straight away. The biggest stumbling block is Napoli, who in no way want to sell a player they bought from Real Madrid last season for €40m.

Marca also reports that Barcelona may be looking at Brazil Under 21 international Lucas Silva.

The Cruzeiro midfielder has drawn interest from across Europe after a fantastic season for the club and is rated at around €10 million. Marca reports:

Lucas Silva is one of the promises of South American football. He is not currently a target for the ‘Azulgrana’ technical staff, although they have put his name down as one to watch.

The ‘Azulgrana’ sporting directors have received excellent reports on one of Marquinhos’ teammates in the Brazil Under-21 side: Lucas Silva. The youngster, who plays for Cruzeiro, is a defensive midfielder.

He was part of the starting eleven in the Toulon Tournament played in the French city a few days ago, which was won by the Brazil team.

With Fabregas gone and Song potentially going we would expect Barcelona to strengthen their midfield this summer.

Let’s have a look at Silva in action. Barcelona fans: a potential replacement for Alex Song?

    I think marker rues is best for barcelona and he have ability to match with messi and neymar who play in German league. Rekatic, koko( right side) inssta(left side)neymar,messi, rues attack will be best in the world because they can easily over lap between each others.
