Gerard Deulofeu To Liverpool, Eric Abidal Could Return, Record Revenue Season : My View On Today’s FCB News here:
Gerard Deulofeu is on the radars of Liverpool and QPR. Liverpool have shown an interest in taking the Spain Under-19 striker on a permanent deal, while QPR are studying the possibility of a loan move. New Barca boss Tito Vilanova is still undecided about Deulofeu’s future – After his tremendous performance at the U19s European Championships earlier this summer, it’s obvious that top teams around the world are interested in our promising youngster. Having said that, I agree that the best option for Deulofeu at this stage of his career is staying at Barcelona B, joining Tito Vilanova’s squad for training when possible. Gerard Deulofeu is one for the future!
Barcelona revenues hit a record €494.9 million ($602 million) in the 2011/12 season. Barça’s revenues grew 4.5% despite a slowing global economy and Europe’s sovereign debt crisis, which hit Spain particularly hard. Javier Faus, economic vice president for the Catalan team, noted that this season’s stellar financial results were achieved largely due to cost-cutting – Very good news for our club. After many years of overspending uncontrollably under Joan Laporta, it is great to see how Sandro Rosell is making an effort to balance our accounts. Sure, we would all like to splash millions Real-Madrid-style and buy the next big player every summer but reality shows Barcelona simply can’t afford to do so. Tough times call for tough measures.
Eric Abidal could play football again after undergoing a liver transplant, the doctor who conducted the operation has said. Abidal continues his daily recovery work at Barca’s Ciutat Esportiva gym, despite the fact that there is still no estimation about when the Frenchman will be allowed to play again – I would obviously love to see the French Bull sprinting from the left-wing again soon but we need to consider his health first. As long as Abidal is fully recovered, I would love to see him back at the Barcelona training ground. No need to rush though: His full recovery must be the main target.
