Adriano leaves for Besiktas, they will pay €600K for Adriano in 3 installments. 1st year 150K, 2nd year 200K and 3rd year 250K.

Two points - I know he has been poor for last season and half but we also have to remember he did great job for us as utility player , even at time when case for him to start could have been made he accepted the lesser role.

Second point - this is why I thought 7M we're getting for Tello is great , we're simply piss poor at selling our players , last season Roma was willing to pay 5-6 M for him and lazio 3M , this season Lazio wanted him for free and we couldn't convince them for even that 3M.

BTW check out his pictures arriving at turkey , Besiktas fans are going crazy over his signing.
Roma bid 3m last season for him which Lucho rejected and we gave him a new contract. Well, that turned out great
How are your academy players nowadays? Any young talents getting promoted?
^ Samper getting promoted this season , lad have potential to be world class if he is given right guidance
Noooooooooooooooooo Messi dayed his hair to platinum blonde. The one thing that Messi did so far that I don't like.

Messi is a blonde now nooooooooooooooo
+3
:'(
Just a rant, but I wanted to get it off my chest. I still love Leo, but in recent years some things have made me frown or even facepalm about his personal life.

1) Tattoo's: I dislike tattoo's, especially if they're far too big or plain ugly, like the weird thing on Messi's leg that's supposed to look like his son's hand
2) Taxes: the obvious one; even though he might not have known at all what was going on, I think he could've simply admitted he was in the wrong the moment his father and accountants said it was so. It seemed to me he was trying to deflect all guilt by pleading ignorance. That really made me lose a lot of respect for him.
3) Resigning from Argentina NT: No idea why he did that, but maybe his personal troubles and the fact Argentinians seems to expect impossible things from him forced this decision. I still think he made a rash in-the-moment decision he will soon regret. But perhaps it'll make people in Argentina realize he's only human.
4) This:
https://scontent-ams3-1.cdninstagram.com/t51.2885-15/e35/13694734_1727846860814503_1424374626_n.jpg

Really Leo? REALLY?
WTF.

I mean, I'm not one to judge people on their looks all that much, but when you see guys like Iniesta or Xavi you don't think they're weird thugs who happen to be Jesus-freaks in the process. I miss the normal guy Messi was (or seemed to be) just a year or 2-3 ago. It's like he's tilted at one moment and went crazy experimental mode.

Next up: piercings and face tattoo's.
+1
blame ramsey, he started this blonde trend xD
About the tattoo and hairstyle, he's been close friends with neymar for the last 3 years. Coincidence? I think not.
+1
I personally don't like tattoos but come on, to each his own. He has his children's names, hand prints and Jesus carved on his body. Whatever floats his boat. You want him to admit he's in the wrong and go to jail? Very naive. Whether he knew or not even people who commit murder plead not guilty. I agree on the argentina thing. That was a bad move. If it was me, I'd cry and say, "I'll continue trying until my legs can't do this any more". Horrible thing to do for the greatest player ever.

Lastly, I think he should be benched for the blonde hair. What was he thinking? If Nasri does something its a sign you should avoid it.
+2
I'd like to see Messi getting benched at Camp Nou for something as trivial as his hairstyle, the fans would be up in arms.

Again to each his own; if King Messi wants blond hair let him have it. YOLO

Tats again is personal preference. It is 2016, where I'm from, 12 year old boys and girls are getting tattoos without parental consent I think it has become a big part of today's culture that nobody should be offended by tattoos anymore. I still cannot believe there are jobs which do not permit tattoos, that is one of the worst forms of discriminations that exist today apart from racism and sexism.
You don't choose your race or your sex, it's different than deciding to get tattoos all over yourself when some professions require a more proffessional appearance.

He's a footballer, what he does to his appearance is his business. Points 2 and 3 resonate a lot with me because I had a lot of respect for him until recently.
Jeroen- Your post indicates that you should become a Ronaldo fan
+4
^ There's a fifth point - Diving
And a sixth point- whining.

Ronaldo gets disqualified right there.
+1
I still have loads of admiration for Leo, but he fell from being an idol to just being admirable. Xavi and Iniesta are miles above him in terms of respect to me.

Ronaldo is a man of whom I admire his determination, his athleticism and skill and his sometimes clear acts of selflessness when it comes to his possessions.

However, on the field he still annoys the crap out of me, something Leo has never done. He might look like a drug dealer now, he might (un)willingly be a tax fraud and he might've rashly quit the NT, the main source of pride a footballer can achieve. But he's still a guy who plays the most wonderful football and behaves very sportsmanlike 98% of the games. Unlike Ronaldo.
+3
@Jeroen, nobody can be perfect in all aspects of life. At least he is showing that he is human after all.

I think there is enough footballing perfectness about him to make him the best in a generation. As for the hair and the NT issues - I think both will sort themselves out in a matter of few months. I can bet on it.
+1
Messi to join the squad travelling to St. George’s Park training camp on Monday. He was given extended vocation along with other players that played in Euros and Copa but he decided to return back early by two weeks.

He seems motivated to do it all again :D

Also its not surprising his motivation his high , people are talking about him like he and Barca had s**t last season , we have set the bar so high that Double by us to most people feels like we have not done anything special.
+2
Cue for Barca website to use #WeAreAllTraining hashtag :P
This has got to be the biggest transfer joke in the history of football. Higuain for £79m? What the f**k is up with that? This makes Suarez and Neymar deals look like daylight robbery.

I am never going to complain about our management overpaying for players. Ever!

Also I'm not sure where this sport is heading. A few years ago €30m was a big deal. Now €90m seems to be the new €30m.
+3
It is pure madness. At this rate I can see Atletico wanting £ 150m for Griezmann. And by this valuation Neymar is surely worth £200m
+1
Lmfao

1st of all he is 28

2nd he is Higuain ffs
He'll be 29 this year in another 4 months. He was valued at 65million euros while lewa was valued at 75m and both benz and Aguero were valued at 60m. These three players are younger than him. Higuain had an outstanding season but that doesn't hike his priced by up 30m. He has averaged a 0.5 goals to games ratio all his life. Last season was an anomaly at 0.92. The fact is Juventus are getting a boat load of money from United for Pogba which Napoli used to suck out as much money as possible. Great negotations from Napoli. Apparently, Napoli fans are pissed off about the sale.
He's a beast in the Serie A, which is why Napoli is sad and Juve is excited and willing to pay for him. I think your dislike of Higuain overshadows the fact that he's improved every year in the Serie A.

A soon to be 29 year old is not bad, that's their prime. He can go for 3-4 years at a solid 25 goals a season in Serie A.
I don't dislike him. When you guys sold him, he was doing almost as well as benzema and I thought it was a mistake for you. I just think he's not worth close to €94m. You bought Bale around the same price 3 years ago and I don't think euro has declined as much not has inflation gone up as much.
^ It is not the Euro going down or the inflation % but maybe the fact that sponsors are pouring in more and more money into the sport that is causing the transfer fees to shoot up to crazy
Of course. United is about to part €120m to juventus for Pogba. Was Napoli going to let them have their best player for nothing?
Hi is dreamfooty still being used or updated? :D
Think last season was the last one.
+1
ohh shucks; thanks for the Info :D
We're selling Tello to Fiorentina permanently and somehow manage to get 7M Euros from them for him.

Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy?

On other hand there are rumors of Mario Gomez as one candidate for a backup striker , he played last season for Besiktas on loan & scored 26 goals in 33 appearances, He is on Fiorentina books and Besiktas had option to make his loan permanent but Gomez decided to leave because of political unrest in Turkey.

TBH not the best option but he can be very decent option as backup striker , he is very different from strikers we have been playing recently and can be perfect Plan B type player , also i doubt he would have any issues playing as backup. Cons are that he is not versatile at all , which means he will just be able to cover for Suarez , we will have to use Turan or Sergi for Messi.
Vietto for 22M Euros :D
Didn't Vietto sign for Sevilla already? And Mario Gomez has always been a Barça fan, in case you didn't know. He's a pure poacher, so he doesn't fit our style at all, but I still like the man.

Oh, and are you happy we sold Tello for €7m? That's a bargain for them; Tello is worth €15m.
Not yet, last week it was about them this week it's us , reports of agreement between clubs too , only part renaming is convincing him , I don't Know why we haven't asked the dictator yet to give him a call , Vietto is friends and fan of Messi.

Tello is worth 15M in current market but you forgot how piss poor we're at selling players , we couldn't sell him before that why he was on loan , we have struggled to sell likes of song , montoya & adriano for money , so this 7M for tello is quite decent.
I've always liked Gomez but I doubt he can fit into our style of play. He had 4 great seasons with bayern but pep bundled him away because he's not a pass and run type player. If he does join us he will one of those rare barca players who can win aerial duels.
That is one aspect that we have lacked for a few seasons now. We've struggled to break down teams who have packed defences with tall and bulky centre backs and have no other tactical plan than to sit back and defend all game long. Imo could be a good option to have depending on the opposition
Excited about the Andre Gomes transfer :D
Loopetegui has been appointed Spain National team manager.

Based on what?? Definitely not his merit.
He won the european championship with under 19 and under 20 national team.
+3
Then he went to Porto and did absolutely nothing with Porto's talent pool... Spain has way better coaches with better records to chose from. Why they chose him is beyond me
Well he is going to know the younger players and have their trust. That counts for something doesn't it?
Like Aliko said, he won championship tournaments with the U19 and U20 national teams. Perhaps they overlooked his failure at club level, but he has shown success at the national level which shows more merit for a position like manager of the national team.
time will show if he can produce something with the current squad. the important thing is to find solutions for parking busses.
the more important thing is to blend in the young players; the days of Iniesta are over and fabregas must be dropped. He should look to bring in players like Isco and Koke into the first team
+1
Dortmund gets back Götze, Liverpool get Wijnaldum, United bought Mikhi & Pogba, Chelsea got Kanté, Juve got Pjanic & Pjaca, Arsenal got Xhaka, Bayern got Renato Sanches and now we get André Gomes!

It seems the traditional big clubs realize the central midfield positions are where games are decided and are investing big time in their future of that.

Except for Madrid. Hehe.
Jeroen you nicely missed out city/gundogan. Hope it wasn't on purpose grr
+1
^^ I think he's making a list of players who aren't always injured. :-p
+2
Meanwhile Vietto chose Sevilla over Barca...:-/
+2
I don't believe uncle perez will go through a whole summer window without splashing the cash; there is still time for real to pull one out of the bag

maybe they are complacent after winning the UCL? Or maybe they have Zidane the best CM of all time as their manager?
Having Modric and Kroos at CM position,with Isco and Kovacic being backups is pretty good reason not to go for another one :)
+2
^ I think so. Probably one of the finest CM pair around, albeit a little light on the defensive balance.
Modric is actually a pretty god defender,but Kroos really want's nothing to do with that part of the game,he's usually just to stand in front of his man and act as if he's going to try to stop him lol
Casemiro is our defensive player. He's been solid, so no need for another. Although rumor is we're in for Moussa Cissoko.
+1
Moussa is box to box
+2
So what if he is a box to box lol at least he can tackle better than Kroos
It is up to a manager if a midfielder plays as a box to box or a more defensive role look at Pogba in the euros he was sitting back most of the time except when France were leading comfortably he surged forward
Exactly mikhitargaryen. Pogba was playing cdm in the last couple games at euros and this is a prime example where he showed he wasn't the best for for that position. he hardly looked influential playing from there.

Obviously a manager will dictate the method of play but then a manager wouldn't buy a player with very different strengths to play a specific role would he?
+1
Agreed Tomi but Sissoko can also be deployed as a Ball winning midfielder/deep lying destroyer CM.
Yes he was given the charge to surge forward for France but often for Newcastle he plays a bit deeper, so that is a role he is suited to as well. He has good physical presence, can tackle well and has good stamina to cover ground, apart from this to be a out an out DM he has to only work on his passing distribution and defensive reading. World class DM's are pretty hard to find out of the box, the majority of them are groomed into that role.
Yeah Tomi, I was talking about traditional big clubs ;-)
+1
Lol Jeroen I know. You are too smart to forget Gundogan.
