Speaking during the presentation of the Club’s latest signing Thomas Vermaelen this lunchtime, Andoni Zubizarreta insisted that he’s not ruling out bringing in any more players before the transfer window closes at the end of the month: ““We are happy with the players we have, but if an opportunity arises, we'll take it. If nothing else comes up, we're satisfied with the squad we the coach the best options as he goes into the new season”.
Zubizarreta was also quick to praise Afellay, whose loan move to Olympiakos was announced today: I want to thank him for everything he has brought to the Club and wish him all the best for the future”. The Club’s Sporting Director also insisted: “At no moment have we spoken to Alves about leaving and we have not received any offers for him . He’s a Barça player and there is no more to say”.
