    Barcelona Coach Pep Guardiola Faces Cesc Fabregas Versus Franck Ribery Decision - Report

    Post by Ali Swaidan on Thu Feb 04, 2010 6:08 am



    Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola has assumed all responsibilities when it comes to signing new players for the next campaign. After verbally renewing his contract for next season, Guardiola has taken on the duties previously relegated to Txiki Begiristain for next season's additions, according to Marca.

    The Barca coach has reportedly decided upon either Cesc Fabregas or Franck Ribery as his big summer signing for next season.

    The Barca coach wants to sign the Frenchman as he currently lacks a predominantly left-sided player for next season. However, signing Ribery may not be up to Guardiola as Bayern refused to sell the player last summer and if they should cede this year, they will do so at a very high price, probably in the range of €60-80 million.

    Cesc Fabregas is the other objective and here, Guardiola's leverage is greater. Barca reportedly already have a 'yes' from the player who is a former Blaugrana youth product and know his financial terms. Arsenal also seem resigned to the fact that they will have to part with their star midfielder. However, Cesc's price is likely to be very high and Barca expect the transfer to be in the range of €40-45 million.

    Should Barca sign Cesc, it is anticipated that Andres Iniesta would move to play on the left, in which case Guardiola would pursue a left-sided player to serve as an ample substitute for the Spaniard in case of injury.

    hmm...

    That would be great for the Catalonian club, but I don't see Faby leaving Arsenal at the moment, I think he likes it very much there and he is very successful. Even so, there is a good chance he may as he is indeed Spanish and also Barca are the best in the world at the moment, so who knows. Ribery shouldn't be too hard to get imo, considering he is with Bayern right now, he would likely go to the world's best club without a doubt in my mind.

    Ribery for me is overrated to be honest.
