Barca And Sergi Roberto Close To Agreement Over New Contract

According to Catalunya Radio, there was a meeting on Monday between the two parties -- the second meeting -- and while an new deal is still not closed several things have been agreed on. The club are offering Roberto a deal until 2022 (his current terms expire in 2019) and his release clause will rise to 400 million euros from 40 million euros. Logically, the player wants a salary to match such an important buyout clause and feels his current salary does not reflect his place in the squad anymore. Oscar Grau and Pep Segura, who are negotiating for Barça, are trying to close a deal with Josep Maria Orobitg, Roberto's agent.

How Barcelona Signed Young Striker Jose Arnaiz

Arnaiz is one of the best sensations of Barcelona's campaign. His arrival didn't make too much noise but he has four goals and three assists for Gerard Lopez's B team. The coach is a big fan of his. Barcelona B's gaffer was key to his arrival at the Mini Estadi after getting first-hand reports from Pep Segura, Jose Mari Bakero and Guillermo Amor. It's no surprise that clubs like Real Madrid, Betis, Napoli and Juventus wanted to sign him last summer. However eventually Barcelona convinced Real Valladolid to sell him to them. They did not want to let Arnaiz escape like Marco Asensio did. Barcelona paid 3.4m euros for him, a fee which could rise to 4m euros depending on his performance and participation, and whether he becomes a Spanish international or not. The player arrived at Pucela at...

Barcelona Defender Gerard Pique Is Going Through A Difficult Time

Before the season even got underway he was in the headlines over his Neymar comment on social media that the player would stay and then he struggled in the Supercopa de Espana defeat against Real Madrid. He scored an own-goal in the first leg that was criticised by then sports director Pep Segura as being "a key error" and then in the return match he had to go off after 50 minutes with an injury. In LaLiga he did manage a goal against Espanyol but it did not mean that he had turned the corner as against Getafe he was badly exposed by a nutmeg from Jorge Molina and also handled the ball in the area which the referee missed. Then against Atletico Madrid last weekend Pique was nutmegged by Antoine Griezmann and left on the ground before the Frenchman's shot was saved by Ter Stegen. He resp...

Barcelona Target Antoine Griezmann Next Summer

Mundo Deportivo today reports that Barcelona are in search of a big name signing next summer, and the first name on the priority list is Antoine Griezmann from Atletico Madrid. Report claims that those high up in Barca hierarchy are all admirers of Griezmann, including general manager Pep Segura, first-team technical secretary Robert Fernandez and head coach Ernesto Valverde. What's more, there is a belief in their mind that Paulo Dybala from Juventus cannot co-exist with Lionel Messi, and that they have never pursue him anywhere near officially. It is proven by the fact that Argentina head coach Jorge Sampaoli did not put them together in the starting line-up in their last World Cup qualifier, in which they managed just a 0-0 draw away at Peru. With that being said, Griezmann becomes ...

Barcelona’s Chief Negotiator Quits The Club

Until now, Sanllehi had been the director of football and in charge of negotiations when it came to signing new players. Club president Josep Maria Bartomeu will present a new sporting structure in the next general assembly, which will see the role of negotiator with other clubs and the likes of UEFA and FIFA be absolved into another position. In the new set-up, Pep Segura will continue as general manager, Robert Fernandez will stay on as technical secretary and both Jordi Mestre and Albert Soler are expected to remain as vice-president and sporting director, respectively. After 15 years of service in various roles, Sanllehi has decided to leave the club of his own volition having seen that he would not fit into the new system. The Catalan wanted to make sure that his departure was on ...

Dortmund Stand Ground With Barca-Target Dembele

Borussia Dortmund say they will not negotiate with Barcelona over a price for Ousmane Dembele as the clock keeps ticking in their stand-off with the want-away winger. Dortmund suspended Dembele indefinitely on August 10 when the 20-year-old boycotted training in protest after the German club rejected an initial bid from Barcelona. The Spanish giants want to sign Dembele and Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho to replace Neymar, who left for Paris Saint-Germain for a record 222 million euros ($261m). However, Dembele has a Dortmund contract until 2021 and reports claim the Germans want 130 million euros for the player they paid Rennes 15m euros for last year. “We are prepared to sell him and what we want is on the table,” confirmed Dortmund’s CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke, putting the ball ...
