    This guy suddenly being linked in a few places. Decent release clause apparently. Potential left field option?

    Barca won't let him go. He's their only decent defender. However, if there is a release clause, we may have a chance.

    50mil clause, would be a great signing but he would have to be first choice and Pep has no reason to not be loyal to Stones and Otamendi at the moment. Unless we swap to a back 3 permanently. He has really improved this season and is playing with a lot more confidence and guile (similar to Stones and Otamendi really) Valverde is doing good work with him.

    Unfortunately the rumours are coming from rubbish sources, the good sources are saying he will sign a new contract which is understandable. Perhaps if Barca weren't having the great season they are then we would have a chance but as it is, they have firmly grasped back dominance in Spain I would say.

    Hard to see why he would rush to leave Barca even if his release clause was met but would be a bargain compared to VVD!

    I've only seen him on CL nights, and I can't say that he reminds me of Carlos Puyol or Dave Ewing! If Stones is on the way back we might wait until the end of the window, decide we don't need anyone and keep JFE off the books.

    I sometimes watch Spanish top teams and think he's La Liga's best defender this season (on par with Varane) .

    No thanks. We targeted him when we played them last season as he is shit with the ball at his feet. Just because he plays for Barca does not mean he is a great player, no idea how he gets in their team unless he has improved 10 fold with the ball

    After the Claudio Bravo fiasco, I just can't trust any transfer from Barca anymore. I have this nagging feeling that their big guns, (Messi, Iniesta et al), affords everybody else to play crap and still come out looking world class.
