Jordi Alba to Barcelona looks like it's happening now.
A couple of signings are being announced on Twitter today:
Marko Marin to Chelsea and Alba to Barcelona.
The Chelsea one is official as it was posted on their website and I'm pretty sure Barca have already expressed interest in Alba and it would only be logical to get a LB as replacement for an aging Abidal.
Newsflash: Chelsea didn´t go down fighting, they won fighting.
Ex-Barca player in chiming in with the anti-football argument shocker.
Kind of sad about Marin leaving Bremen. He looked brilliant a couple years ago when playing with Özil but lost his confidence since Bremen isn't playing too well.
At best, he'll be a German/Serbian Walcott who can finish and cross. At worst, he'll be a bench-warming Krasic that fell out of favor with RDM because he turns the ball over too much and is weaker than a moist tissue. Or he'll be a Hleb.
If he can get his confidence back by playing with a new team in a new league, I anticipate great things. And I still can't believe Chelsea signed someone for under £10M.
I think Luis Enrique is a dead man walking at Roma, having led the club to 14 losses thus far. They scored a late goal to snatch a draw today, but seem unlikely to get CL football and may not even get EL. Stylistically they seem lost, lacking fight/drive.
