Zapping World Eleven TOP 10: The most profitable transfers in history
Two days before the end of the La Liga season, Barça has almost validated its second place, and it was felt during Xavi Hernandez’s press conference on Saturday. If the trip to the lawn of Getafe tomorrow (7:30 p.m.), has obviously been mentioned, many questions have been asked about the summer transfer window Blaugrana.
“I have said several times about Frenkie de Jong that he is very important. He has been a starter almost always and for me he is fundamental… Then there is also the financial situation of the club and there it will have to be decided” first declared the Catalan coach, about the lusts around the Dutch midfielder.
De Jong, Lewandowski, Adama Traore…
Asked about the potential signing of Robert Lewandowski and the Pole’s advanced age, Xavi Hernandez replied firmly: “When it comes to signing, age doesn’t concern me…we signed Dani Alves when he had 38 years old! The players take care of themselves, they are more professional. Alves, Ibrahimović, Modrić, Cristiano or Messi are examples”.
Finally, the former Spanish international midfielder concluded on Adama Traoré, on loan from Wolverhampton with a purchase option of 30 million euros: “We will decide when we have a clear understanding of the economic situation”.
Summer promises to be hot in Catalonia.
