Carles Puyol: Looks likely to stay at Barca

The Rossoneri have been linked with a move for Puyol after the Barca stalwart admitted he is a fan of the Serie A outfit, but Galliani says age is not his side.

"Carles is a good friend of Milan and we know how much he loves this club after Barca," he told Mundo Deportivo.

"But we have to say that our current plans do not include signing any older players, despite Puyol's ability, and will focus on youngsters."

However, Galliani did admit that Milan would jump at the chance to sign some of Barcelona's younger players should they become available, with rumours of a move for Cesc Fabregas and Alexis Sanchez in the pipeline.

"Barca have a number of young players that would interest us if they were to become available," Galliani added.

"We talk to them informally on occasion and Barca and Milan maintain an excellent relationship."

o is Jordan Ibe overqualified for this list or what? To be honest I was expecting to see his name, I thought he'd fit in perfectly. Maybe his name is too familiar? Because otherwise this list should be made for him. You could actually just insert his name & stats into the middle paragraph about Brandt and it would describe Ibe.

hat a wonderful compliment - that Wenger has been able to raise more funds for players running a football club than Jose's patron has in running the economy of a small country. I guess it shows there are different kinds of success.
