Spanish daily “AS” lets us know that FC BARCELONA is already
planning for next season. Coach Guardiola has had reunions with the
technical team & Football Director to voice his necessities to strengthen
the side & keep it competitive. The paper comments that Guardiola
wishes to reinforce three positions: Goalkeeper, Left Winger & a forward.
If Guardiola manages to get his three wishes, this will force the same
number of players to leave Camp Barça & names are being published.

The names that Barça wishes to join next season – wishes, another thing
is if they can get them over – are Petr Cech (Chelsea FC & difficult),
Franck Ribery (Bayern Munich) & David Villa (FC Barcelona). This will
force out Albert Joquera (sub- goalie), Alexander Hleb & Bojan Krkic.
Alexander Hleb has already interest from Bayern Munich & could come
further into play if Barça negotiates with Bayern over Ribery. David Villa
would take up Eto´o place who is saying anything about his contract
renewal & may leave if he gets a super big deal of his life that he has been
waiting for, remember he said the “Barça was just a job for him”. The
message here is that loyalty doesn’t come into his equation, although as
a professional he gives his 100% to the Club that pays him.
