Barcelona Falls Further Into Ruin

 Last season Barcelona fell short in just about every major tournament they entered which concluded with Gerardo Martino being sacked from his position at the club as they lost the Copa del Rey, Champions League and the Spanish League which was won by Athletic Madrid and the other 2 was secured by Real Madrid.


The downfall of Barcelona ended up with Luis Enrique taking up the position as the head coach of the club for the upcoming season and he has his work cut out as the summer transfer window has already seen players being transferred from club to club while other performers of the club are rumored to leave Camp Nou including Xavi Hernandez.


The veteran midfielder Xavi has already received offers from MLS andQatarand his performances since last season has been significantly underwhelming compared to others as he is reaching the last few years of his professional career at 34 years of age.


The future of Xavi is expected to be discussed and settled when the 2014 World Cup is over.


Barcelonahas already offloaded one of their midfielders as Cesc Fabregas was sold toChelseaas the former Arsenal player is expected to be replaced by the Croatian Ivan Rakitic but the team of Luis Enrique does not want to fall behind in the transfer window and they are being heavily linked with Arda Turan.


Arda Turan is one of the most sought out players in this summer transfer window with Liverpool, Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal are interested in signing the Turkish midfielder but it all will come down to whoever launches a higher and better offer for the player of Athletic Madrid.
