FC Barcelona have told Arsenal and Liverpool that Pedro is theirs for £15million. The 27 year old still has 15 months on his current contract but has slipped down the pecking order and doesn’t look like getting a look in with the likes of Messi, Neymar and Suárez in front of him.
Hristo Stoichkov has labelled Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal, his former manager at Barcelona, as “scum”. Stoichkov, who spent seven seasons at Barcelona and worked under Louis van Gaal at the Nou Camp in the late 1990s, told L’Equipe that he blamed the Dutchman for his departure from the club.
FC Barcelona’s interest in Atlético Madrid midfielder Koke has all but left Premier League clubs like City, United and Chelsea out in the cold.

FC Barcelona was let off the hook by Real Madrid on Sunday who failed to capitalise on their chances of winning the Clasico. The game ended up 2-1 in Barça’s favour despite Real Madrid having the better of the first half. The game was put to bed by Luis Suárez who scored an absolute peach of a goal, much to the delight of the Nou Camp.
