Barcelona slight favourites to sign speed demon according to bookie

Barcelona’s transfer business has has been focused mainly on Luis Suarez this summer. But now that a deal has been done for the Uruguayan you would imagine that Barcelona will attempt to pursue several other targets, as they plan to return straight to the top table of European football.

With Messi, Suarez and Neymar all working in tandem by the turn of the year it’s going to be truly frightening stuff from Barcelona next season.

But regardless of how good the finishers are they are going to need some brilliant service too – top distribution into those front three.

And someone who has quality in bucket loads from the wide areas is Fiorentina winger Juan Cuadrado.

He had a fantastic World Cup and that has only served to increase his profile – he has reportedly drawn interest from big European clubs including Barcelona and Manchester United.

Whoever else is in for him Barcelona offer such an attractive proposition for any player who wants to reach the top. The team, the stadium and the city are hard to beat.

We can definitely imagine this lad turning up at the Camp Nou this autumn but he won’t come cheap due to that demand for his signature.

And with such a huge outlay on Suarez you would also imagine that Barcelona may have to do offload a few players before a deal can happen.

Nevertheless English bookmaker SkyBet have Barcelona as clear favourites to sign a player this summer, if he does move from his current club, at odds of 2/1. And they were 3/1 yesterday so Barcelona have come in again.

Let’s see Cuadrado in full flight. Barcelona fans: could this winger be played as a wing back to eventually take the place of Dani Alves?

  1. I think cuadrado is a fine player compare to Dani Valves who has no discipline on the field. Also Blind can be brought along.

  2. taking into account how madrid are structuring up their squad lethally, we sure wouldnt want to resume d season without quality defenders, ones that can survive the pressure imposed on them, the likes of gerard pique vs macsh alone shud stop, bring in new players, new defenders, my god chasing a 30 year old defender is just a crappy idea

  3. Oh! God how I wish my comment would be read by our dear sports director and his dear assistant…How on earth should u pursue a 30 yr old defender,as the saying goes”old dogs can’t learn new tricks” so pls in earnest ,start knocking the doors of the likes of Mart Hummels,Delay Blind and Joan caudrado. we need them to re-structure our team like our arch rivals are doing….we need fresh blood…#visca barca#

  4. Bringing in d likes of Mats Hummels nd juan cuadrado is a beta idea 2 strengthen d defence. Buh if Mats wud refuse 2 come i see ntin wrong in bringing in a 30y/o whom is ready 2 work wit d team. Pple may tink he’z old already buh i tell u, a man of 40y/o proved his worth in d just concluded WC in person of Miroslav klose. So y won’t he (Mathieu) be able 2 stand as a capable blocking ‘5’ in d team

  5. All I know is that Barcelona needs defenders. do all your best to bring any vasatile and experienced defenders to our dear team.

  6. Please we all know that we need a central back. Cos, Batra has not gotten much experience, so let just have a better person to join him. Please don disturb Alves.

  7. Honestly people as made a lot of lovely comments here & something as 2 be done on the signing of good&young players who are not 30yrs old.pls mr director buy us players that are young&reliable lik Madrid is doing,&mind u as a Barca fan I don’t want 2 xperience what I xperienced last season thank u.

  8. D Centra back defenders by which barca should get rest of mine it will consist these of players
    1.Hummel
    2.Rojo
    Tiago silver

  9. ZUBI ZUBI ZUBI ZUBI I THINK YOU SHOULD RESIGN AS SPORT DIRECTOR IF YOU DONT KNOW WHAT IT MEANS TO BARCA. I THINK YOU SHOULD BE RESPONSIBLE FOR SIGNING GOAL KEEPERS NOT OTHER PLAYERS. GIVE VETRAN PUYOL THE CHANCE TO FOUND YOU OUR CENTRAL DEFENDER. I NOW BELIEVE THAT YOU ONLY WANT TO SATISFY YOURSELF AND NOT THE TEAM AND THE FANS IN GENERAL. THIS IS THE TIME FOR YOU TO GO BACK TO SCHOOL AND LEARN THE PROBLEM OF BARCA. WE NEED A WORLD CLASS DEFENDER. NOT 30yrs DEFENDER. IT IS A SHAME THAT YOU ARE UNABLE TO ADDRESS THE DEFENSIVE PROBLEMS OF BARCA WHICH THE TEAM HAVE BEEN SUFFERING WITH FOR LONG TIME NOW. I KNOW IF YOUR SO-CALLED 30yrs OLD DEFENDER FAIL YOU, YOU WILL HAVE NO OBTION BUT TO APOLOGIZE AND RESIGN. WHAT BECOMES OF WE THE FANS IS NON OF YOUR BUSINESS. MR. PRESIDENT, YOUR GOOD PROJECT WILL EVENTUALLY BE DESTROY BY THIS STUPY AND SO-CALLED ZUBI WHO DOES NOT HAVE FEELING FOR THE FANS OF THE WORLD. LONG LIVE BARCA.
