Udinese and Barca negotiated this week in Barcelona for him.
His agent also has foreseen to travel for if he should already seal the agreement.
Alexis Sanchez wins to become whole reinforcement Barça 2011-12 . Of the many names that has a portfolio of Andoni Zubizarreta , striker Udinese today is well positioned to play for Barca. And while negotiations for players like Cesc or Rossi can become a soap opera with their respective clubs, with Sanchez everything can go much faster. In fact, this week is a meeting between the leaders of Barça and Gino Pozzo , Udinese magnate, in Barcelona, which also lies the Pozzo family.
Although the Udinese has very tempting offers from Manchester City, United, Chelsea, Juventus and Inter , in excess of 30 million euros, the Italian club already know that the desire for Alexis Sanchez is playing in Barcelona and so have decided to give priority to the Catalan club when negotiating. Gino Pozzo has a good relationship with the leaders Barca and its purpose is to try to do the will of the player, which is none other than the Barca dressing. Consequently, if the meeting to be held this week in Barcelona between Barca and Udinese-only need to add up their agendas both parties to fix the day, the Catalan club makes an offer that comes close to the deals that are already on the table, Udinese has decided to sell the club. Moreover, the Italian club even accept a young player to lower the transaction. Do not forget that Udinese will play the Champions League next season, it can have its weight to some of the young decide to play there.
Another detail that says much about the speed with which the agreement can occur between Barça and Udinese for the transfer of Alexis Sanchez is the agent of the Chilean striker, Fernando Felicevich , also plans to travel to Barcelona in a few days. Two weeks ago, Felicevich yaestuvo in Barcelona, and then dined with leaders Barcelona to lay the foundations for the future contract that would link Sanchez to Barcelona for five seasons.
Pending the determination of their future, the player of Udinese , 22, remains concentrated with the Chilean team at the sports complex Juan Pinto Durán in Macul, which is preparing its participation in the America's Cup to be held in Argentina 1 to 24 July.
Alexis enjoy the holiday now granted to them by their coach and they are used to being with family, it is possible to devote the day to finish out the details of its future contract with his agent. This week, in an interview with the magazine of the union of professional players from Chile, Alexis Sanchez and made clear its aspirations. "The Barcelona is a beautiful club, "he said.
Before traveling to Argentina to participate in the Copa America, Sanchez will play a friendly at Santiago de Chile the next day 19 vs Estonia. The desire of the player, like that of Udinese , is that before playing the Copa America and its future is resolved. Udinese began their season on July 3 and want to have enough time to sign the relief of Sanchez.
Among the many competitors who will be the club when they can recruit players from the likes of Alexis Sanchez and Rossi is one that coincides with the same objectives. Like Barcelona, Inter Milan has in its portfolio Udinese striker signings and Villarreal. While both players have clearly shown their preference in clothing Barca, Inter's interest can only urge their signings. By the way, Inter have also enabled the option of Kun Aguero, who knows the party an advantage over Barca, as this will not go after him. (via MD)
Has passed through Italy, Spain and England and know how little football's evolving global.
Behind those horn-rimmed glasses hiding eyes full of experience and two decades ago to see football from some of the world's top bench. Milan, Madrid, Juventus, Roma and now the English are the teams he has coached. SPORT is now analyzing the game for Barça.
How has seen Barca this season until his arrival at Wembley?
The team is playing well, very, very well. His football is innovative. Everyone thinks that their game is the ball and not. The novelty is that press very quickly when the opponent loses the ball, to the point of not allowing him to play. Everyone says that Barcelona defends well and does not. Barça did not defend well. Defend only average. The novelty is that the midfielders and strikers, who are middle of the field up, no doubt push the opponent when they lose the ball. The opposing defenses usually do not have much quality and then lost the ball in favor of Barcelona.
But this is not an invention of Guardiola. This had been done "
No. Nobody had done. The only thing that has come to make is that the team, when he lost the ball, positioned and then pressed the ball. They missed a few yards behind, stood in a predetermined area and said: "Ok. Are we all ready? Then we will press. " The Barcelona anticipated pressure, not allowing the opposite place you, you throw four or five opponents for the ball.
Barça Have you changed over the years?
The players have changed but the idea remains at the club. Some try to do it, but if a striker or a midfielder does not do is complicated. The Barcelona is compact with this idea.
How does this line?
Is the line of the future. In football there are three stages: Cruyff Ajax when they played all came like a tidal wave. And you're wondering "What's going on here?" I do not know what to do. Over the years it was discovered how to hurt and then the style changed, disappeared. Another point is that of Sacchi's Milan, which is what I said before: all behind, we start looking, we are ready, because we are going to press. The third time is the Barça de Guardiola for everything I've said before. Why have more possession of the ball?, Why their percentage is always higher than the rest? Because to retrieve the ball immediately. Do not let your opponent breathe. Because it impossible for his opponent to play in pushing players who have less command of the ball, defenders.
Sacchi's AC Milan talks but it is also yours "
Yes I speak of Sacchi's Milan I do not like to talk about me.
How does it compare this boat to the great teams in history?
Yes What they are doing is innovative. However, to win you need great players. After Pelé, Santos is over. The Milan is over when you were the big players. Real Madrid also did the same. Barca have young players so they can pay for a fairly long period. But do not think that all youth players out as good as these.
But the generation promises.
Let's see, let's see .... I worked with the quarry seven years and not all are gems. We'll see. When you put the shirt, the others do.
In 2005 there was a great youth player named Leo Messi. The Barça knew that promised, but you made us see that he was ready to be a big plus. Do you remember that press conference after the Gamper Barcelona-Juventus?
I'll tell you one thing. Halfway through the game I went to Rijkaard, who was the coach, and said: "This kid can not play for Barcelona because he is abroad, leave it a season that I do I will play at Juventus. Then give it back. " Rijkaard refused to do so: "Forget it, we're going to fix in a few months." As it was.
Was compared to Maradona. How has your progress been since then?
He has improved a lot and can still continue to do so because it has a quality that is impressive to invent and have no other players.
You had to Guardiola in Rome. What do you remember that time?
He played very little because I had other players in his position. In my last season in Milan I went something like this: when players become old, they are the same players that were young. Guardiola was always a perfect professional, I never had a problem with it and glad that I succeed. I always say that the midfielders are the best coaches because they see the front and back. The only think defenses defend and the attackers to score goals. I am very happy for Pep.
Do you understand that after the success of Pep, the consequences of this new line and the poor performance of the Italian teams, the catenaccio is dead?
I do not answer this question because it would kill anyone, heh, heh, heh. (via SPORT)
Xavi Hernández quoted us at home with their parents in Matadepera to talk at length about the club, Real Madrid and especially football ...
There are players who need no introduction. One is Xavi Hernandez, the best midfielder in the world and the most capped player in the history of Barcelona.
Temporadón often, right?
Yes, a wonder of the season. The only 'but' Cup final have been in every final, winning the league, we started winning the Super Cup and also how we ended up playing football. It has been perhaps the best match of Barcelona, if you know their history because I have not seen all but one of the best in recent years. Spectacular match. I have not enjoyed my life in a field as the final day. In a league match I've also enjoyed, but was not as transcendent. It has been wonderful this year. I have enjoyed. I am like a kid who starts and who sees everything again. I had never played football as well. I am very happy. Of how the season has gone, how people know us worldwide. I can not ask for more.
Forgotten tough times?
The press is very much in. Often post things-sporting.
You mean it's doping?
When you take so many years nothing surprises you. You get a half laugh. When I see the telecasts, I get to jump a little laugh thinking about my mother! As far as we can to win. What bullshit. You have to be more noble in life. Can not be that insane.
Do you mean by 'dairy'?
I do not like to talk about these things. It has made us stronger. Mou `figure", the Madrid not wanting to play football that corresponds to Real Madrid. We emerged victorious from all but the Cup in the league, Champions League semi-final, playing football. Barcelona is now even stronger thanks to what he has done for Real Madrid.
Do you expect a 'Mou' even more aggressive next season?
The same, but with more experience, learn about the functioning of the League. `Not only Mou", Madrid. But Mourinho is a guy who likes controversy and turn to the Catalan and Barcelona. We need someone like `Mou" the Catalans to wake us up. Mou `do we make them bigger.
Have you talked with Casillas after the four clásicos?
I spoke after the Cup to congratulate him. I have not spoken to him personally after. We'll talk. With it I get very good life. Try to turn the page around.
With Messi are invincible?
I have no words. Will continue to be the best until he plays football. For me Messi is the best ever. Di Stefano, Pele, Maradona. Being the best in every game. This guy should take good care, you feel happy here and while he was here with the team there, you can win a lot of things.
What does your 'feeling "about the life of this Barca?
I am very optimistic, I think, and feel it. In football it can not predict anything because it is portrayed. Now I say this will last five years and next year `Patapo what I eat potatoes. I can not be guessed. But my feelings are good. Not just football. You should see the atmosphere in the dressing room. It is a wonder.
"The best costume that has ever been?
By far. There is no ego, it's all jokes, all are good people. Because we send people home. That's the difference. Pep, Tito, doctors, physios, we are all feeling culé. 49 or 50, 35 or 40 have been raised here in Barça.
The striker's team-mates say that his game is perfectly suited to Barça philosophy.
Giuseppe Rossi is one of the Italian players with the greatest impact in recent years. His four seasons in the Spanish league speaks for itself, but its best credential runs against their peers in the 'Azzurra "not hesitate to spend a good range of praise for his vision, his scoring and his promising journey, make it a player with Barça philosophy.
The Milan player Andrea Pirlo, says Rossi is a great player, "is doing very well this year and is lucky to have him here in the selection. It is very important to us. Rossi deserves a place in the Barcelona and I am confident that it would do very well, "concluded the midfielder. For its part, the side of Genoa, Domenico Criscito, considered that "it is doing very well at Villarreal and now looks like it could end up signed for Barça. And for the `Azzurri have you already become a key player. Gives us a lot and keeps getting better, "said unstinting praise for the U.S. born player, whom he considers" very complete, but for me the best feature is its technical quality. It's quick, ready, score goals todo.Tiene do you have the ability to score goals in any situation and by their mobility and quality passing and movement would be very good at the club. "
For its part, the goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon, gave as an example the last game of Italy against the selection of Estonia, "has helped everyone see how good a player and how useful it is for his team. If it ends up clocking, I think the Barcelona makes an excellent operation. " Also Napoli midfielder Christian Maggio, noted that Rossi is a very important player for the Italian and can make it even better, I think he's ready to play for Barcelona. " In this coincided with his team-mate Andrea Ranocchia, who plays for Inter, he believes that "it is a very strong player. Carries a great line up and I think now is a great time playing and goals, "also confessed that" I've known him too long, but since the first time I saw it has not stopped improving and can still play better ".
Another interest, Giampaolo Pazzini, Giuseppe rave about, "the League has shown how good he is. If you signed for Barcelona, I am very happy for him. With Villarreal has done very well. Furthermore, he knows Spanish football well and as it must do well if you go to Barca. " (via SPORT)
The addition of a center is not a priority, and that of Banyoles is one more first team.
Barca sporting address is outlining the objectives for next season and, in principle, are not provided reinforcements for the defense. Gaby Milito is the only player to leave the club and waiting for the recovery of Carles Puyol is a success, the club believes it is well covered behind the rise of Fontàs Andreu, who also accompany Marc Bartra.
In the case of Banyoles, in recent weeks has received offers from major clubs both in the Spanish League and overseas, but his manager, Rafael Anguita, has not taken into account.
