So we get out of the Champions League and now we immediately start selling off players??
I first read this on <a href=”http://spanishfootballsports.blogspot.com/2008/03/fc-barcelona-has-agreement-with-poulsen.html#links”>Spanish Football and Sports</a> that Sevilla midfielder Christian Poulsen is headed to Barcelona come season’s end.
I read the <a href=”http://www.elsesports.cat/pesports/eeItem.jsp?itemid=261751&seccio=barca&item=noticies”>article in TV3</a> (note the article is in Catalan:TV3 is one of the TV stations in Catalunya) and basically it says that the contract has been confirmed, but Barcelona still has to convince Del Nido on the deal. The sticking point also is that Poulsen has one more year left on his contract at Sevilla and the two clubs will have to come to an agreement on how to handle that.
Poulsen is a good midfielder. He won’t score you many goals, but he knows how to defend and has played very well this season with Keita.
Barcelona are looking at the Danish midfielder to replace Edmilson who’s contract is up on June 30th and will not resign with the Catalan club.
