Nice save.


Atheltic Bilbao boss Oceano Cruz looks set to join Barcelona next season according to reports that claim he is talks with ‘Los Cules’.

The Portuguese manager has been a revelation this season and Barcelona are believed to be keen on him following Tito Vilanova’s decision to quit football due to health reasons.

Oceano’s representatives are widely reported across the globe to have held extensive talks with Barcelona president Sandro Rosell and other members of the Barcelona board.

The current Bilbao boss is yet to be offered a new deal by‘Los Leones’, with his agent adding speculation he may be on his way out come June.

“By June, Oceano will be a free man. His contract expires then and we are yet to receive an offer from Bilbao.

“There is interest in his services after a spectacular debut season in Spain and Barcelona is a strong possibility. For now he will enjoy his holidays while we await an outcome.”

Sounds like talk to me! Because it looks to me that Oceano Cruz heart is in Bilbao with his team! With Oceano's leadership they'll dethrone Barcelona!
