Pique for Gudjohnsen?
Reports emanating from Spain are claiming that Barcelona could be willing to let unsettled striker Eidur Gudjohnsen leave for Manchester United, as part of a swap deal including United youngster Gerard Pique, once of the Catalonian giants.
Though Eidur`s father and agent, Arnor Gudjohnsen has recently stated that his son has no desire to return to the Premiership after a long and prosperous reign with Chelsea, reports about a switch to United are growing rapidly.
However, for now Barcelona are concentrating entirely on Sunday`s game at already relegated Gimnastic, a game which could see Barcelona crowned champions. Talking to Sky Sports, a club spokesman said,
'Our objective is to win the last match and to win La Liga, the question of players is on stand-by until the end of the season.'
Though I would hate to see such a young prospect as Pique leave the club, there is already talk of him making his loan move to Real Zaragoza permanent in a £6 million deal, and if instead the deal bought Eidur Gudjohnsen, a player I rate very highly, it would sure to be a good deal.
However, for now it is all swings and roundabouts, and I guess we will have to wait until after Sunday to see if these rumours have any truth in them.
