What do you guys think will become of Barcelona? Will Eto'o leave, what about Ronaldinho? I know Ac Milan want him, it would be interesting to see him play in Italy.

Someone's getting sold for sure.

How do you fit:

Henry, Eto'o, Ronaldinho, Messi, Deco, Xavi, Iniesta all on the same team

Yeah, I think Eto'o and Xavi might leave. As well as Giuly, my fav Barca player, after Zambrotta.

I think Barca are trying to give Giuly away, he is definately not staying.
I think Eto'o might stay though, but who knows. They are definately stacked, especially now with Henry, but I think there could still be enough room for everyone as long as they keep in mind the whole 'team' aspect.
Zambrotta could be on his way back to Italy (Milan) considering how Barca are basically sure to be signing Abidal from Lyon shortly.
I'm just curious how Real will react as I seriously think Mijatovic and Calderon are going to make a big signing, epecially now that their biggest rivals just added a star like Henry.

In other news, I heard Chivu is leaving Roma for Inter after turning down Barca :eek:

Eto'o has said he wants to stay though he's been linked with pretty much every big club in Europe.
Ronaldinho to go? Milan came out and said that they had a £47m deal agreed with Barca for him and he got booed by sections of Barca fans apparently.
I dunno how all 4 can play but if they can then it will be awesome to watch.

I hope Milan get Zambrotta he would be perfect on the left, and I don't see a reason why Eto'o could not be on Milan. They're the current champs, they need somebody up front, (Pippo-getting old and Gila- dissapointing)and having him there would make their game more lethal. However, I don't see Roni going to Milan he would fit but at times he hangs on the ball to much and Milan is more of a team rather than person oriented team.

I think the big catch should be Saviola, he's still young and impressive and if I were Milan or any other team I would go after this guy instead.

:confused:

Saviola is a chronic underachiever.

As in the current European Champs! As for Saviola, go ahead but as for the rest of us we'll accept his talent.

Well i think Eto'o and Ronaldinho will stay at Barcelona, as Milan would have already signed Rondaldinho and Eto'o announced in an interview that hes not leaving Barca.

I think that if Barca keep the two they will play a formation like:

------------------Valdes-----------------------
Zambrotta----Puyol--Marquez/Chivu---Bronchorst
---------------Toure---Xavi--------------------
---Messi---------------------------Ronaldinho--
-------------Eto'o------Henry------------------

If Zvezda are to qualify for the CL i hope we dont get this team.

I believe Marquez will leave, or at leat he won't play in the starting eleven as I can't see Barcelona not buying a new CB. Thuram wasn't what they expected in 06/07 so Chivu will most likely play there.

Offensively it's a managers wet dream to have all these players upfront :smileani:
