Reports are out claiming that Barcelona are willing to offer players in part-exchange for Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil.
Catalan TV station La Portería last week reported that Barcelona are interested in signing Mesut Ozil and will make an offer for the German playmaker’s services this summer. With reports on Thursday suggesting Barcelona will bid €30 million for Ozil.
One person who has not hidden his interest in the German playemaker is Barcelona’s Director of Football, Andoni Zubizarreta – who revealed recently that he has been monitoring the prolific midfielder since his days at bitter rivals Real Madrid according to La Portería.
Barcelona were one of many big clubs tracking Ozil before he joined Real Madrid but instead moved to bring Cesc Fabregas back from Arsenal.
Outspoken agent Francois Gallardo discussed the move on El Chiringuito de jugones over the weekend.
“There are two players that Barcelona would trade for Ozil. I only know one name, the other I do not know. Arsenal wants this player. This is Pedro,” he revealed.
However, Facts have been stated as to why this deal would not see daylight. see… Proof Ozil Will Snub Ridiculous Barca Deal To Stay At Arsenal To Partner Incoming Fabregas.
In my own Opinion the second player that Spanish giants Barca are reportedly willing to part away with would either be former Arsenal men – Alex Song or Cesc Fabregas with the former likely to be the best option for the Catalan giants to let go of.
It would however, be interesting to see how the turn of events will unfold as Director of football at Barca is reportedly keen on bringing back Ozil to Spain. Although i still maintain that the deal would end up on the rocks due to the valid reasons given above.
