Barcelona completes Alba transfer

Post by Mark on Fri Jul 06, 2012 9:44 am

Barcelona have completed the transfer of Jordi Alba from Valencia for a fee of 14 million euros. The La Liga giants confirmed on their official website on Thursday that the left-back has signed a contract until 2017. Barca had reached an agreement with Valencia over a transfer fee at the end of June and the Spain international has now signed his contract upon successful completion of a medical.
Alba, who was unveiled to fans on the Camp Nou pitch on Thursday, spoke of his delight at returning to the club at a press conference. "I'm very happy to come back home to my family and my people," the left-back, who was released from Barca in 2005, told reporters. "And thanks to the fans who came to the stadium. I did not expect so many people to come. I'd like to thank all those
who made it possible to return home."
Barca vice-president Joseph Maria Bartomeu also spoke of his delight at the completion of the transfer, and revealed that director of football Andoni Zubizarreta had been keeping tabs on the 23-year-old for some time. "We're very excited. We all know about him - he went out to make a career and is coming home now. We have a long history here," Bartomeu said. "It was a goal the club had sought for a long time. Zubi (Zubizarreta) told us about his interest in Alba more than a year ago." The Euro 2012 winner, who has a 90 million euro buy-out clause in his deal, came through the ranks in Catalunya, before being let go and eventually breaking into the first team at Mestalla.

Actually, many more counter attackers but just know that it can be prevented if they hold tight. Don't you see how Spain defence formation was? I know Tito will be making thoughts to copy that formation.
