    Barca signs Jordi Alba

    FC Barcelona can announce that it has reached an agreement today with Valencia CF for the transfer of player Jordi Alba

    The operation will cost 14 million euros and he will sign a contract for the next five seasons



    FC Barcelona can announce that it has reached an agreement today with Valencia CF for the transfer of player Jordi Alba, pending the player’s medical examination when he comes to the city of Barcelona next week.
    The operation will cost 14 million euros and he will sign a contract for the next five seasons.



    Jordi Alba Ramos, FC Barcelona’s first signing for the 2012/13 season, is a player that always makes himself noticed despite being a left back. He is the archetypal wing back, with a number of virtues. Aged just 23, he’s quick and skilful, and likes to support the forwards, making life hell for right backs with his lightning runs up the flank.


    Back at Barça

    Jordi Alba is no stranger to Barça. Born in l’Hospitalet de Llobregat, he spent seven years at La Masia between 1998 and 2005, where he also played in midfield. After that, he went to UE Cornellà before being snapped up by Valencia. He helped the reserve team win promotion to Division 2B before going on loan to Gimnàstic Tarragona.


    Highly experienced

    In the summer of 2009, he finally won a place in the Valencia first team under Unai Emery, playing 74 league games in three seasons, and becoming one of the key members of the squad, and even contributing five goals. His solid displays for Valencia have also won the recognition of Vicente del Bosque, and in the summer of 2012, Alba appeared in his first European Championship.

    He looked great against Portugal. I was most impressed with the energy he displayed at the end of extra time... plenty left in the tank after playing the entire match defending against Nani.

    Iniesta and alba on the left, messi and dani on the right. I like it a lot. They just need to sort out who goes to attack, so the defense doesnt get exposed.

    Tito will install Mascherano-Busquets double pivot. Xavi is past it anyway and La Moustache has shown us the way. That way Alba-Alves won't get exposed.

    Messi plays centrally.

    Wrong. Messi plays everywhere, and links up with dani on the right.
