Laudrup does know him etc, and he's out of favour and getting on. But still not gonna happen, since we couldn't afford his wages and clubs like Arsenal and Chelsea who need firepower would be more likely to want him. However, I'd say he's more likely to come here than a mid table team like Fulham etc. It's one of the big boys or us in this country :P
Still, Barcalona do have a lot of promising young players. A few very promising in the defence department, who don't get games there and I would love to see us get on loan to do this strengthening he talks about and allow us to fork out on a real striking option.
Edit: I've just been reading these articles, some have suggested it as a loan move to get him playing time to rediscover his form in a style that would suit him. That makes it sound a lot more plausible, but still highly unlikely. If only lol.
