The FC Barcelona forward will join the Premier League side this summer

After spending nearly his entire footballing life at FC Barcelona, Bojan Krkic says goodbye to his Club. The Catalan forward, who was always one step ahead of his age in terms of skill and quality, leaves the Club with the distinction of being the all-time highest scorer in the Barça youth system. His tally from all his years at La Masia exceeds the 400-goal mark. He also performed well when he shared the senior side dressing room with some of the best forwards on the planet. First he vied for a starting spot with Eto’o, and then with Ibrahimovic and Leo Messi. During his four seasons on the first team (2007-2011), he scored a total of 26 goals.

Bojan made his first team debut under the orders of Frank Rijkaard at the age of 16, against Egypt’s Al-Ahly. He scored the team’s second goal against the Egyptian side. His first goal in an official match was scored on October 21 2007, against Villarreal when he was only 17 years old. He became the youngest player in FC Barcelona history to score in a La Liga match. He nearly achieved the same distinction in the Champions League when he scored against Schalke 04 – he became the second youngest player to score in a UCL match at the time.

Four seasons with the first team

Bojan was important in Rijkaard’s tactical schemes in the manager’s final year on the FC Barcelona bench (2007/08). Despite his youth, he scored 12 goals from 48 appearances. But his role in the team became more discreet in the following three seasons. He was crucial to the team’s winning Copa del Rey bid in the 2008/09 season (treble year) and in Barça’s La Liga winning run in 2009/10, as he scored important goals against Villarreal and Sevilla.

After his seven-goal haul in the 2010/11 season, Bojan was loaned out to Roma (which was managed by Luis Enrique), then Milan, and then Ajax. He won the Eredivisie that season with the Dutch team.

Bojan bids farewell to his childhood Club with three La Liga titles, two Champions League medals, one Copa del Rey, one European Supercup, two Spanish Supercups and one Clubs World Cup.

FC Barcelona director general Antoni Rossich, acting as the Club’s legal representative, has presented a statement to the Spanish National Court (Audiencia Nacional) concerning the transfer of Neymar

FC Barcelona director general Antoni Rossich, acting as the Club’s legal representative, has presented a statement to the Spanish National Court (Audiencia Nacional) concerning the transfer of Neymar Júnior.

Former FC Barcelona president Sandro Rosell and a representative of the Club’s auditors, Deloitte, also made declarations in court today.

The FC Barcelona director general, in his testimony before Judge Pablo Ruz, agreed with a previous statement by former president Rosell, that the contract had been correctly drawn up and that there were no tax related motivations, denying any form of contractual manipulation or simulation.

Both the FC Barcelona director general and former Club president Sandro Rosell also confirmed that neither the Club’s vice-president for sport, nor the economic vice-president took any part in the transfer negotiations or in the drawing up of the details of the contract. They both agreed that because of the singular circumstances of the transfer and the exceptional interest in the player shown by other clubs, FC Barcelona needed to act with the maximum discretion and confidentiality.

FC Barcelona confidently expect all of these declarations to help to clarify the fact that the club acted correctly at all moments throughout the transfer process.

Highlights of @marcbartra91′s press conference: ““I’m hoping to consolidate my position and get playing time””

As he begins his third campaign with the first team, Bartra explained: “I feel I am ready to take a step forward”.

“Luis Enrique-s message is that we all have a part to play and we all must pull in the same direction”.

As he goes into his third season with the first team squad, 23-year-old Marc Bartra is hoping to establish himself in the team. Speaking to the press this morning, Barta explained: I want to establish myself and get plenty of playing time, so I can contribute fully to the team with all my ability. This is my third season and I feel confident that I am ready to take a step forward”

 Bartra revealed that Luis Enrique had been making it clear what he was looking for in the first few days of the pre-season: “his message is that we all have a part together and that we need to pull in the same direction – we have to win our place in the team in every training session/ I am hoping to convince him that I should be in the starting line up from the first game of the season, I spent my first two year as a professional and I have great memories  – I learnt that winning mentality from him- that’s what he taught us all”.

 [[CITA_1]]

“It’s my third year and I’ve been through a lot, from not getting a sniff to playing a bit and then getting picked for big games. Now I feel mature and excited about giving all I can to the first team. There will be more competition and we will have to grit our teeth and fight for a place in the team”.

 “The best thing we can do is to accept that there are no guaranteed starters and reserves – we are all the same. There are players with more cachet, but the most important thing is what they bring to the team as a whole- Luis Suarez has already shown he is one of the best strikers in the world”.

Now I feel mature and excited about giving all I can to the first team.
