It has come out to day that there are alot of pissed off members in the barca camp. They are very mad about the transfer of Figo to real, as it is about to happen according to the behind the scenes sources.

But, they have planned to fight back by almost signing our best goal keeper Iker Casillas if it does go through. They have also shown interest in Roberto Carlos. We are planning to rebound if they sign those too by buying Zenden and Kluivert. This seems very real but I would prefer to keep r.carlos and casillas then get zenden and kluivert, even if they are amazing players.

This is just becoming ridiculous. Casillas is not going to Barca (though I did read this too in Marca). Zenden is all but definitely going to Italy next season. These guys are like a bunch of little kids :(

This is just kidding.How could Barca buy Carlos when he has $150M buy-out clause.If they can buy him, they can buy Raul too.And why would Casillas move to Barca?I personally see no reason.I really can't see Barca spending $30M on a keeper, and they have Dutruel already.They will do nothing, because they got no president and no coach.Also, since Figo rumour is dismissed there will be no war, I guess. :)
HALA MADRID!!!

For the buyout clause to take effect as a way of making a transfer the player's consent is REQUIRED. If his consent does not exist, then the buyout clause cannot be used anyway.

For those who thought the Figo case was dead, here is an excerpt from onefootball.com. I did not post the entirety because the rest is posted elsewhere on the board.

Figo exposed - a deal done with Madrid?
Sunday 9th July 2000

Luis Figo is in danger of becoming extremely unpopular in Barcelona as his latest comments on a much touted move to Real Madrid utterly contradict statements he made to
a Catalan paper.

What has become known in Spain as the "Figo Affair" has now
turned into Figogate with the revelation that if the Portuguese star does not sign for Real and Florentino Perez becomes President, his agent will pay the "club blanco" £20 million.

"I have an offer from senor Florentino Perez and that is why I want him to win the elections," Figo is quoted as saying in Madrid based paper Marca a day after declaring he would be "mad" to enter an agreement with a candidate for the Real Madrid Presidency.

Marca has also revealed that they have seen at first-hand the contract signed by Figo's agent, Jose Veiga, committing the winger to Real despite the player's pledge of loyalty to Barca in Sunday's edition of Catalan paper Sport.

The document, dated 1 July, and signed by both Perez and Veiga categorically states that Figo will pay Perez £20m should he become President and not sign for the European champions. Additionally, the document asserts that Perez will pay Figo £20m in the event he becomes Real President and fails to sign him.

“I only wanted to avoid problems in Barcelona," said Figo in response to the interview he had given where he reassured the fans that he had not entered into any agreements and would remain a Barca player. "The atmosphere that was building up there was becoming very complicated for me.”

"I have always wanted to stay at Barcelona," Figo had said, promising to be at the Nou Camp for the first day of pre-season training. "I am a professional footballer and the five years I have been with the Catalan club have been very happy."

Figo admitted receiving an offer from Madrid, as well as from Lazio, but denied having signed any agreement Perez. "I am not crazy enough to have signed any pre-contract," he said.

Figo even went on: "Nunez has always refused to talk to me about my contract, even though I have never asked Barcelona to pay me what I have been offered elsewhere. Nunez knew I was willing to sign for less than I could earn at other clubs and I just wanted to talk to him but he has not made
that possible."

Should Lorenzo Sanz be re-elected as President, putting the ki-bosh on a Figo move, Veiga is believed to have prepared the way for the Portuguese playmaker to go to Lazio. The problem nonetheless remains that the star's buy-out clause is double for foreign clubs, a prohibitive £80m.

Both Barcelona Presidential front-runners, Lluis Bassat and Joan Gaspart, have promised to equal the pay deal on offer from Perez, but it is uncertain whether the fans be pleased to see a now surely fallen idol back at the Nou Camp.

I've already posted the Figo story under the Perez Chances thread. Will you comment it for me? (meaning, how do you see the whole matter evolving?)

like you said, Pablo, it's becomming ridiculous!

I'm slowly fed up with all those rumours where nothing is behind. :mad: Fed up with the money-battle of the candidates :mad:, fed up with Barca and Figo :mad:, fed up with Perez! :mad:

Sorry, guys just have to speak out what I think! This soap may cost us another possible player...Munitis! :(

i dont think we need munitis nor we need figo we only need a good playmaker.and we dont have one.

munitis and figo are both wingers.

ZiZou is good but tooooooooooooooooooooooo expensive.

Sorry my friend, I hadn't got to that post yet when I put this up :) :eek:

1/ I think Figo has no credibility from this moment. As that articles stated later either someone is lying or Figo and his agent tried to pull a double-take and didn't plan on being found out.

2/ I don't know if the debt has doubled under Sanz or not. Also, if that were to be the case, how much of it is because of him or because of past decisions that have come to haunt them?

3/ This affair probably took the wind out of Perez's sails. Even if Figo is full of crap and Perez is right, it certainly shows that everything is hush-hush under the table and frankly, it smells suspicious.

4/ I don't want to see Anelka go without another quality player bought in. Anelka's story is odd because his brother Didier is completely denying this story that Marca and L'Equipe ran.

5/ I don't see Figo coming. Like Sanz said, did anyone ask Del Bosque what he wanted and what his plans are? Also, Figo has spent many years at Barcelona and coming to Real, it just doesn't seem right. I don't know how to say it other than "ca ne se fait pas" or in english "That doesn't happen" but doesn't have the same ring :D

Argh....

Isn't this whole elections thing CRAP, CRAP, CRAP???

I'm so tired...

Agents are well known to pull "suspicious" tricks. But I think they've caught themselves in their own trap on this one... I think Figo is saying to the press he wishes that Florentino gets elected, but he's secretely wishing for a Sanz victory! This will end the whole mess for him and he'll pretend that nothing happened.

Let's also face reality: which Real Madrid or Barca coach wouldn't want Figo (or Zidane, or Raul for that matter) in their team? I think none.

And about the Real - Barca swap: ca se fait mon ami, it has been done before. I think Luis Enrique is the latest example. Alfonso is ready to do it this year too. And I needn't remind you the older examples of Laudrup, Hagi, Schuster...

It' all bull isn't it? I guess the media are really bored with the weather and heat in Spain, so they've decided to spice everyones lifes up a bit:D:D:D Anyway Figo is really a dork, i don't wanna comment on him anymore, because it seems pointless. Like someone smartly pointed out we need one thing:

PLAYMAKER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

nothing lese, well maybe a great central defender, but that's all! If we get that we're invincable! I'd go for Zidane & Cannavaro. It would cost us some 80 mln $. That's a lot, but after this we'd be the best for the next 5 years in european football:D

Cannavaro and Nesta? You want to know why they are rated so high? Because the market is VER SMALL for "world-class" defenders. The competition is nowhere near as in the world midfield or attack. Thin kabout this one for a second...Its a very good piont!
