Luis Suárez has covered plenty of kilometres en route to Barça. He started out as a professional in Montevideo on May 3, 2005 at Club Nacional in a Copa Libertadores game against Junior Barranquilla. His excellent performances in the 2004/2005 season, in which Nacional won the league championship, were enough to win him a regular first team slot in the 2005/2006 season, in which his club retained the league title. Suárez impressed so much that in 2006 he was signed by FC Groningen in Holland, but he only stayed there for one year. He had already done enough to convince Ajax Amsterdam to make him part of their plans, and in the summer of 2007 he headed there. In his three seasons at Amsterdam, he won the Eredivisie, the Dutch Cup and the Dutch Super Cup. And he also won the Golden Boot as Europe’s top scorer in 2009/2010.
By now, several of Europe’s biggest clubs were asking questions about the Uruguayan striker, and it was Liverpool who eventually secured his services during the 2011 winter transfer window. It was on Merseyside that he certified his name as one of the hottest properties in world football. He scored 82 goals in 133 matches, and last season his tally of 31 was enough to win the Golden Boot once again, this time shared with Cristiano Ronaldo. But the only trophy he won in his time with the Reds was a League Cup. After three and a half years at Anfield, he packed his bags once again. Next season, we’ll be enjoying his presence at Barcelona. In total, Suarez has covered 13,954 kilometres in search of his dream. To wear the FC Barcelona jersey

Germany: Neuer, Höwedes, Hummels, Khedira, Schweinsteiger, Özil, Klose, Müller, Lahm, Kroos, Boateng
FC Barcelona and Liverpool FC have reached an agreement for the transfer of Luis Suárez. The Uruguayan will be travelling to Barcelona next week for a medical, to sign his five-year contract and to be officially presented to the media and fans as an FC Barcelona player.
Goals and competitiveness
Luis Suárez is one of the most productive strikers in European football. Since turning professional (2005/06) he has always scored at least ten league goals a season, whether at Groningen, Ajax or Liverpool. The 27 year old is heading for the Camp Nou as holder of the Golden Boot after hitting 31 goals for Liverpool last term, which means he has topped the scoring charts in both Holland and England.
The 17th Uruguayan to play for FC Barcelona is not just a prolific scorer, he also has a strong competitive spirit and a powerful figure, and he’s coming to Barça in search of even more. Luis Suárez thus adds his name to the impressive list of world class strikers that have played for the club in recent years, and is the fifth to have arrived with a Golden Boot among his honours.
FC Barcelona har värvat Luis Suarez från Liverpool. Uruguayan kommer till Barcelona nästa vecka och kommer då genomgå läkarundersökning och kommer skriva ett 5-årskontrakt med FC Barcelona.
Luis Suarez är en av de mest produktiva strikers som fotbollen någonsin sett. Sedan han blev proffs säsongen 05/06 har han gjort minst 10 mål per säsong. Han har tidigare spelat i Groningen och Ajax, vilka båda hör hemma i Holland samt Liverpool som är från England. 27-åringen delade på guldskon den gångna säsongen med 31 gjorda mål.
Han är inte bara en extremt bra målskytt, han är också extremt tävlingsinriktad som person. Han är för övrigt den 5e vinnaren av guldskon som värvats till FC Barcelona. Min uppfattning är att värvningskostnaden ligger på motsvarande 702 miljoner kronor.

FC Barcelona and Villarreal CF have agreed to terms for the player Jonathan dos Santos. The transfer fee, which is a combination of a fixed sum and variables, could reach 2 million euros, and FC Barcelona reserve the right to be involved in a possible future sale of the player.
12 years at the Club
The Mexican player arrived at FC Barcelona in June of 2002 along with his brother Giovani. He played for the Club’s Infantil A team, the Cadete B and A teams and the Juvenil B and A teams.
In the summer of 2008 Dos Santos was promoted to Barça Atlètic by Luis Enrique. After three seasons in the reserve side – during this time he also featured for Pep Guardiola’s senior team – the Mexican player was promoted to the first team in the summer of 2012.
He featured in nine matches for FC Barcelona during his two seasons in the first team. His participation was severely curtailed due to a serious injury sustained on October 23 of 2013.
In total, Jonathan dos Santos has been at the Club for 12 years and has featured for FC Barcelona on 28 occasions
FC Barcelona och Villareal är överens om en övergång mellan klubbarna för Jonathan dos Santos. Övergångssumman som inkluderar olika variabler kan nå maximalt motsvarande 17,5 miljoner kronor. Samt det faktum att FC Barcelona har rätt att lägga näsan i blöt när och om spelaren söks vidare.
Mexikanen kom till FC Barcelona 2002 tillsammans med sin bror Giovanni dos Santos. Jonathan har gått igenom många olika åldersklasser före han slutligen nådde A-lags nivå 2012. Han kom att spela 9 matcher med FC Barcelona efter att han nådde A-laget. Han kom dock sammanlagt att spela för FC Barcelona vid 28 olika tillfällen.

Det är på gång med en ny säsong och FC Barcelona lånar ut spelare som vanligt. Gerard Deulofeu var en säsong hos Everton och trots elaka skador gjorde han utan tvekan succé i Liverpoolklubben. Gerard Deulofeu är som bekant numera en del av FC Barcelonas lag inför säsongen 14/15. Adama Traoré är en av vår klubbs mest lovande ynglingar och han bekräftades nyligen som klar för Barca B den kommande säsongen. Men direkt efter det beskedet fick vi beskedet att superlöftet Adama Traoré kommer lånas ut till Everton den kommande säsongen. Det är en utlåning som är helt logisk för både vår ärorika klubb och för Adama Traoré. Han får naturligtvis erfarenhet på en betydligt högre nivå av att spela i Everton än att mer eller mindre harva runt i Barca B, där motståndet i bland är riktigt svagt. Gerard Deulofeu kunde möjligen utvecklats lika mycket vid en uthyrning i La Liga, men det får vi inte veta. Adama Traoré är till skillnad från Gerard Deulofeu en väldigt storväxt spelare, ett riktigt fysiskt praktexemplar, det vill säga perfekt för BPL med Everton. En säsong i Everton, kanske två, och han återkommer till Camp Nou och är redo för FC Barcelona? Det vet vi inte i dag, det får framtiden utvisa. Men min personliga uppfattning och tro är att han spelar i FC Barcelonas A-lag 2016/17 och kommer få många minuter och matcher.

It is coming up with a new season and FC Barcelona lends out players as usual. Gerard Deulofeu was one season at Everton and despite the nasty injury he undoubtedly made success in the Liverpool club. Gerard Deulofeu is as known now part of the FC Barcelona first team for the season 14/15. Adama Traoré is one of our club’s most promising youngsters, and he was recently confirmed as ready for Barca B for the coming season. But immediately after the announcement we received news that the super promise Adama Traoré will be loaned to Everton for the coming season. It is a loan that is completely logical for both our glorious club and Adama Traoré. He may of course get experience at a much higher level of play in Everton than to more or less harrowing round of Barca B, where the opponents sometimes are really weak. Gerard Deulofeu could possibly evolve as much at a loan to some club in La Liga, but we don’t know. Adama Traore is unlike Gerard Deulofeu a very large plant player, a real physically perfect player, he is ideal for BPL with Everton. One season at Everton, maybe two and he will return to the Nou Camp and is ready for FC Barcelona? We do not know that today, time will tell. But my personal opinion and belief is that he plays in FC Barcelona’s A-team 2016/17 and will get many minutes and matches.

FC Barcelona erbjuder ett rejält långtidskontrakt till mittfältaren Sergi Roberto. Kontraktet sträcker sig till 2019 och kommer till på direkt initiativ från FC Barcelonas nye tränare Luis Enrique. Det är dock ett faktum att kontraktsförhandlingarna inte kommer inledas före att vi har passerat den 31 augusti 2014. Ty samtliga försäljningar och inköp inför säsongen 2014/15 ska först färdigställas före att kontraktssamtal med lagets sedan tidigare kontrakterade spelares kontrakt ska behandlas. Dock är bägge parterna helt överens om en förlängning, så samtalen kommer i alla fall inledas i en positiv anda. Sergi Roberto spelade den gångna säsongen 27 av 59 matcher, det ger ett deltagande i 45,7 % av matcherna. Han spelade endast 939 minuter på dessa 27 matcher, vilket ger ett snitt på endast 38,6 minuter per match. Sergi Roberto debuterade i Barca B säsongen 09/10 mot Gava då var han endast 17 år gammal. Sergi Roberto debuterade i FC Barcelonas A lag den 10 januari 2010 mot Ceuta i Copa del Rey, en match FC Barcelona vann med 5-0. Han var då 18 år gammal.

FC Barcelona offers a hefty long-term contract to the midfielder Sergi Roberto. The contract extends to 2019 and comes on a direct initiative of FC Barcelona’s new coach Luis Enrique. It is however a fact that contract negotiations will not start before that we have passed August 31, 2014. For all sales and new signings for the season in 2014/15 should first be completed before that contract talks with the team already contracted player’s contract shall be treated. However, both parties fully agree on an extension, so the calls are coming in all cases begin in a positive spirit. Sergi Roberto played the past season 27 of 59 matches, which gives an involvement of 45.7% of the games. He played only 939 minutes in those 27 matches, which gives an average of only 38.6 minutes per game. Sergi Roberto debuted in Barca B season 09/10 against Gava when he was only 17 years old. Sergi Roberto debuted in FC Barcelona’s A team January 10, 2010 against Ceuta in the Copa del Rey, a match FC Barcelona won by 5-0. He was then 18 years old.

Det finns väldigt mycket som tyder på Alexis Sanchez nya adress inom kort blir Arsenal. Chilenarens agent, Fernando Felicevich, är hos London-klubben just nu och förhandlar. FC Barcelona har satt prislappen till 40 miljoner euros vid en försäljning, motsvarande 350 miljoner kronor. Det är en prislapp som Arsenal inledningsvis protesterat kraftigt mot, men mycket tyder på att Arsenal tvingas lägga upp den summan då FC Barcelona inte vikit en millimeter från sitt krav på väl motiverad summa. Det får ses som troligt att ett offentliggörande av affären kan komma inom mycket kort.

There is very much that points that Alexis Sanchez new address shortly will become Arsenal. The Chilean’s agent, Fernando Felicevich, is at the London club right now and negotiates. FC Barcelona have put the price tag of 40 million euros for a sale. This is a price tag that Arsenal initially protested strongly against, but evidence suggests that Arsenal are forced to put up the sum as FC Barcelona not deviated an inch from its demand on reasoned sum.

Neymar Jr has been Brazil’s leading player before the semifinal tonight against Germany. He has finished on goal on 18 occasions whereof 13 met the target. Neymar Jr. has been named game MVP two times during the World Cup. The injury he received after the brutal attack against Colombia means that he will miss the rest of the World Cup.

Jag är så trött på att ta emot skit från allt och alla. Orden kom från Javier Mascherano när han peppade Argentina inför Belgien-matchen i VM. Han höll ett tal som var uppriktigt och ärligt, en riktigt uppeggad Javier Mascherano fick se tårar rinna på både Lionel Messi och fler lagkamrater. Det kommer vidare ut uppgifter om att Javier Mascherano också hållit ett uppeldat tal vid frukosten en morgon under Argentinas vistelse i Brasilien, så att det blev alldeles tyst i 30 minuter efteråt. En känslomässig Javier Mascherano fick mycket sagt mycket som var tänkvärt. Argentinas före detta lagkapten ses av många som lagets riktiga kapten och förslag finns om att återinsätta honom som Argentinas kapten. Javier Mascherano är spelaren som är inte bara 100 % övertygad om att Argentina kan skriva stor historia under Brasilien VM och vinna VM, Javier Mascherano är spelaren som är 1000 % övertygad om att Argentina kommer skriva stor historia och att Argentina kommer att vinna VM på värsta fienden Brasiliens hemmaplan.

I am so tired of receiving crap from everyone and everything. These words came from Javier Mascherano when he stoked Argentina before the Belgium-match of the World Cup. He made a speech that was sincerely and honestly, a really excited Javier Mascherano saw tears run on both Lionel Messi and several other teammates. There are also information about that Javier Mascherano also held a combusted speech at breakfast one morning during Argentina’s stay in Brazil, so that there were silenced for 30 minutes afterwards. An emotional Javier Mascherano got much said, much that was memorable. Argentina’s former captain is seen by many as the team’s real captain and proposals are to reinstate him as Argentina’s captain. Javier Mascherano is the player who is not only 100% convinced that Argentina can write great history in Brazil World Cup and win the World Cup, Javier Mascherano is the player who is 1000% convinced that Argentina will write great history and that Argentina will win the World Cup at worst enemy Brazil’s home turf.

FC Barcelonas drömmar om en värvning av Fiorentinaspelaren Cuadrado är mycket komplicerade. Cuadrado själv har som sin förhoppningsfulla dröm att få komma till FC Barcelona. Men Fiorentina ser mer till inkomster vid försäljning än till spelarens egna önskemål. Klubbar utan själ och hjärta som PSG, Manchester City exempelvis driver upp priset på spelaren till löjliga nivåer. PSG med en lång rad misslyckade inköp till sanslösa överpriser uppges bjuda 45 miljoner euros motsvarande 393,7 miljoner kronor. Med tanke på deras svindyra fiasko värvning Marquinhos undrar vi verkligen hur detta bud är möjligt?? Spelaren möjliga värde ligger på drygt 30 miljoner euros motsvarande 262,5 miljoner kronor. FC Barcelona behöver stärka upp med en högerspringare, men ska inte låta sig ännu en gång betala skyhöga överpriser för en spelare. Cuadrado är naturligtvis fortsatt utvecklingsbar, men är också en spelare med tydliga begränsningar.
A D M I N
FC Barcelona’s dreams of a signing of the Fiorentina player Cuadrado is very complicated. Cuadrado himself has as his hopeful dream to come to FC Barcelona. But Fiorentina look more to revenue from the sale than to the player’s preferences. Clubs without heart and soul, such as PSG and Manchester City for example, are driving up the price of the player to ridiculous levels. PSG with a long series of unsuccessful purchases to outrageous overcharges is reported to bid 45 million euros. Given their ridiculously expensive fiasco signing Marquinhos we wonder really how this commandment is possible? The player’s possible value is just over 30 million euros. FC Barcelona need to boost up with a right winger, but should not allow that they once again paying exorbitant overcharges for a player. Cuadrado is of course still going to be developed, but he is also a player with clear limitations.

Pedro is frustrated at the lack of straight answers. He feels that Luis Enrique is waiting for information about other players before he gets clear information on the future. Pedro made his best goal scoring season during the season and is not happy with the situation. I make goals, but get too little time I’m both a second and third choice and now my future is in focus. I obviously want to play and I deserve to play …… Many are the clubs that want him and with a squad consisting of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez, Neymar Jr., Alexis Sanchez, Gerard Deulofeu, it’s not impossible that Pedro becomes the player to be sacrificed?

Puyol: To doubt Messi has none at all logic. He is a very important player for us. He is our reference and will stay with us very long.
Puyol: It is certainly not easy to find good central defenders. But we have Mascherano, Pique and Bartra. It’s not easy to improve a center back situation with those players we already have.
Cuenca: I do not listen to bid anymore, I have no plans to move. I have a contract and hope to stay here many more years.
