Hamburger SV aast op NEC'er Edgar Barreto

4/4/2005 20:53

EXCLUSIEF - Hamburger SV heeft zich bij NEC gemeld voor Edgar Barreto (20). De Duitse club wil de Paraguayaanse middenvelder komende zomer inlijven.

Barreto maakte afgelopen weekend weer duidelijk waarom NEC zich zo in de handen wreef toen het de talentvolle middenvelder begin 2004 verwelkomde. Met een fantastische vrije trap en eentje op de lat, deed hij zijn naam als specialist met een gouden rechter eer aan.

Barreto staat nog tot medio 2009 onder contract in Nijmegen. HSV zal dan ook diep in de buidel moeten tasten om NEC's groeibriljant over te nemen.
Is he any good ?

He has a good freekick at least. I saw on Ajax-site that we were supposed to be interested too in him. A site that normally is well-informed.

Still I find it hard to give a good judgement about him. He came in with quite some fuzz at NEC. They had bought a 'quality player', but due the international duties and injuries he hardly has shown that much so far. Still enough to see at least that he's one of the best players in the squad, although that doesn't say that much if you look at the rest of guys. You were spot on though with Boulie, so perhaps we should sign him now, before we'll see him perform great and it will be too late. ;)

yeah like chivu said, looks a good player when he's on his game but due to different reasons like travelling, he hasn't come to it often. He can play as a playmaker in midfield too cos of his good kicking technique and cos of this I personally hope he'll be coming to Feyenoord if we sell Ono in the summer though that probably won't happen cos of our boards irritation too with Onos constant flying to Japan and injuries along with jetlag often coming with this.

What do you think, what will be the tranfer fee for the player ?
@Wally : But wouldn't it be the same thing with Barreto concerning long journeys and jet-lag ? While Ono is going to Japan to play for his NT, Barreto would be on his way to South America...

Players from the non top 3 clubs in Holland especially a lower to middle sized club like NEC are usually pretty cheap despite the talent some of them might have. I'd be surprised were you to have to pay anything much more than 2,5 million euros for him.

yeah I think it'd be the same as with Ono, that's why I don't think the Feyenoord board would go for Barretto but I don't see a lot of potential good replacements in Holland for Ono either so unless the board thinks Nicky Hofs, who we got in the winterbreak can be Onos replacement, I would make the gamble and buy Barreto and hope that the Paraguayan FA are more lenient than the Japanese FA.

Werder Bremen is now also interested in Barreto.
Think they will have the best chances to get him, because in Valdez, a nt mate of Barreto is already playing for Werder.
