Former Chelsea striker Eidur Gudjohnson has had his say regarding his future, and a possible move back to the Premiership, and in particular Manchester United.
The past week has seen many rumours spread involving a move for the Icelandic international, who is currently out of favour at the Nou Camp, and following the Catalonian giants failing to land a third consecutive La Liga title, they may decide to make changes to their team, which could pave the way for an exit for the 28 year old. Speaking to the Daily Mail, Gudjohnson said,
'I joined Barcelona to be part of the club's triumphs but it is not easy for me when you look at the club's forward line and see all the big names there. Each minute has been a special test for me but to sit on the bench is not the most desirable experience for a player. I don't think I have failed in Spain but perhaps I have not totally won the confidence of the coach. If I leave then my ideal idea would be to return to British football."
He went on to say,
'If Barcelona decide to place me in the market then I need to study all the details. But a perfect choice for me will be a club that plays in the Champions League. Obviously Manchester United fit that category. I know there has been some contact with English clubs and with Celtic but the answer to this question does not rely just on me.'
Many sources suggested that the deal could see the former Barcelona player, Gerard Pique return to the team he supported as a child, as part of a swap, however the Spaniard has denied the rumours,
'I have a contract with the Manchester United and I have not said anything about my future .It is not a secret that I am Cule [a Barca fan] and I have always said that my dream is to return to play one day with Barca. I am very been thankful to Manchester, but I have never spoken with them of the possibility of an exchange.'
This news comes as great news for the club, as it could mean a bid for the Icelandic stiker to help us up top, without losing our young prospect in Gerard Pique. However, I`m still not convinced that the rumour will ever materialize, as by reading his quotes, it is easy to tell that he craves first-team football, and with Saha, Rooney, Smith (possibly), Solskjear, Dong, Anderson, and the assumed return of Giuseppe Rossi from loan, can we promise him that?
