Barcelona have reached an agreement with Chelsea to sign Eidur for £8m. The player has already done a medical, and is expected to sign a four-year deal. The Icelandic striker struggled to retain his striker position, and was played out of position in most of last season's games. Throw in Shevchenko's arrival, and a move to Barcelona was only logical.

Barcelona captain Carles Puyol expressed his delight about the new signing. "He is strong, fast and scores goals. I have played against him and is a great player". said Puyol.

In other news, FC Barcelona have loaned young Argentinean striker, Maxi Lopez, to Real Mallorca for one season. Maxi and Barcelona lately agreed that a year of regular first team football experience would develope his chances at Barca in the future.

Chelsea seem to be keen on signing German star Phillip Lahm and Portuguese Deco. But the latter mentioned that he does not desire to reunite with his old manager, and he's very happy at Barcelona with his family.
