Alba closer to his dream

Jordi Alba , Spain’s new first choice left back , looks closer than ever to going back to his boyhood club , Barcelona .

Valencia President Manuel Llorente is in Barcelona and although talks were cut short between the President and various representatives from the Camp Nou club , they were revisited yesterday afternoon .The objectives are simple , Barca want the player and Valencia need the money .

This was the first face to face meeting between the two clubs and the standing joke in Barcelona at the moment is that Llorente has claimed his visit was to negotiate with Mediapro for the television rights of Valencia matches next season.

The timing was perfect for the talks to begin regarding Alba’s future, the player already has an agreement with the Catalan club, whereby he would sign for the club as a free agent come the end of next season when his contract expires at the Mestalla , Valencia are keen to cash in on the player now , therefore it’s a case of meeting somewhere in the middle .Valencia want 15 million , Barca have offered 11million,however Barca will be keen to close the deal in the next few days as Alba’s value is likely to soar during Euro 2012.

Jordi Alba signing for Barca is just a matter of time.
