Good luck Alex Hleb

It is now official. FC Barcelona have loaned Alexander Hleb to VFL Wolfsburg for next season. Speaking in a press conference, vice-president Jose Maria Bartomeu confirmed the loan of Hleb to Wolfsburg, and the specifics of the deal depend on a few things.

According to  the translation of Barcastuff, Hleb will join up with Wolfsburg in October once fully recovered, and if he "plays a certain number of games" Wolfsburg will have to pay his full salary. This seems like an awful lot of "ifs and buts" for such an injury-prone player, but so long as he is not near the Camp Nou, it doesn't matter to me.

As Sebastian said yesterday, the departures of Bojan Krkic, Jeffren, Gabriel Milito and now Hleb mean the club have succeeded in getting rid of the driftwood, and when you factor in the bargain signings of Cesc Fabregas and Alexis Sanchez, this summer has been one of the best transfer-wise for FC Barcelona.
