Zidane has made himself available to Barca through a friend of his that is close to people in the club. His family is very eager to leave Turin, and see Barcelona as the perfect place to be. He does this against the will of Juve who are not ready to let him go. Nunez has repeated what he has said before, that he will not negociate any transfers and that such matters will be left up to the next president. Reports from this article from Mundo Deportivo also say that Ronaldinho Gaucho is Barca's if we want him. Apparently we are his first choice and all is left is to sign him to a pre contract that will keep him from signing for another team. Also Inter's Zanetti has made it clear that he would like to play in azulgrana next year something that Serra Ferrer would like very much. Same reports also have it that Barca has close links with River Plate over the availability of Saviola, Aimar, and Placente. Apparently Saviola would already be signed if it wasn't for the Nunez situation. Also we have apparently lost the race for Athirson. Around January, he would have been ours if we wanted him, but now he is supposed to be going to some Italian club. So overall, this is a lot of news. I love the news about Zidane, of course he will cost a good amount, but not as much as we would get for selling Rivo (hint, hint) and i see him as a player who actually wants to be in the team while Rivo seems to be looking for the most lucrative way out. Also, for my money, Zidane is a more complete player than Rivo, able to score, set up teammates and control the rythm of a game. I hope we get him. I also like Zanetti very much. I see Ronaldinho, Saviola, and Aimar as great prospects for the future. Especially Aimar, have you guys seen this kid play? Wow, he is an exciting player, beautiful to watch.
