Barca should hurry up and make Roma an offer for Stekelenburg.
I agree, but what his price, I don´t know whether or not they´ll fork out big bucks for a keeper.
Roma paid €8 million and I guess would probably sell for €8-10 million. Barca probably also has the type younger talent that's not going to quite make it (like Bojan) in abundance to work out a deal.
I think Stek's a very good GK even if he didn't completely pan out for Roma. He was always solid but Zeman seems to prefer the kid, Mauro Goicoechea and rumor has it will go hard after wunderkid Mattia Perin.
I assume it's mainly because Goicoechea seems more on the same page as far as playing quicker, incisive, longer balls out of the back but Stek is good with his feet as well (why Luis Enrique wanted him).
The only problem may be language. Stek seemed have trouble learning enough Italian or Spanish to communicate with the backline. Zeman was highly critical of this and rightly so if it's the case.
The other problem, of course, is this potential transfer is all complete conjecture on my part.
