5 Strikers Linked with a Summer Move to Barcelona

By some distance, the most annoying thing about the two soccer transfer windows is the alarming regularity with which clubs are linked with all manner of playing staff.

From the vaguely believable to the frankly preposterous, it's open season for Twitter-mongers, tabloids, "friends of 'player x' brother-in-law's uncle" and the like to punt story upon story to fill the column inches.

"Transfer Deadline Day" may provide TV and radio stations with a soap opera of sorts, yet it's certainly no way to conduct effective business in my opinion.

Barcelona generally like to get their transfer targets identified, and where possible signed, as early as practicable.

It's a far more sensible policy than that which many clubs, particularly in the UK, adopt. A last-minute bargain hunt if you will.
