Barcelona should grant Luis Enrique's wish for Celta Vigo's Nolito

Luis Enrique says he's happy with Barcelona's progress, but has also expressed a desire to bring in a fourth striker.

Despite having already added Arda Turan and Aleix Vidal to their treble-winning squad, Barcelona have not addressed their most obvious need during the current winter transfer window: the signing of a reliable, incisive and effective forward who could challenge either Lionel Messi, Neymar or Luis Suarez for their starting spot.

It is clear any player in world football would struggle to take playing time away from arguably the best front-line in the sport's history, especially if their invaluable...

Barcelona may look to Celta Vigo's Nolito to replace Pedro; Pep payday?

The winter window gets closer with each passing day and the transfer rumour mill is starting to pick up steam. As always, Transfer Talk has the latest and greatest. See all the summer deals here.

Nolito says 'yes' to Barca

Barcelona are still looking for a replacement for the departed Pedro, who left the Camp Nou to test the Premier League waters with Chelsea. And one name keep coming up over and over: Nolito.

Celta Vigo's unprecedented start to the La Liga season -- which currently...

Celta Vigo's win over Barcelona cued by Iago Aspas, the homegrown hero

It's a long way from the middle of the pitch to the goals at Balaidos and almost as long again from there to the stands, but Iago Aspas wasn't about to stop. Twice he ran from his own half to score against FC Barcelona on Wednesday night and twice he kept right on running, first to one end and then to the other, beyond the goal where the ball now lay and up, onto and over the advertising boards into the wide-open space behind where, still some distance away, Celta de Vigo's fans were going as wild...

Celta steamroll Barca, while Benzema leads Real Madrid to tough win

Week five of La Liga saw Celta deal champions Barcelona a heavy defeat, while Real Madrid gutted out a tough win over Athletic Bilbao at San Mames.

1. Barca totally outplayed by Celta

Iago Aspas scoring twice as Celta Vigo beat Barcelona 4-1 will take some beating as the result of the season in La Liga. And the way Aspas and attacking partner Nolito ran riot against a sorry Barca defence must be very worrying for Blaugrana coach Luis Enrique.

Ex-La Masia attacker Nolito started the scoring...

Barcelona and Luis Enrique face familiar foe in Celta Vigo

If emotional investment is what drives you to watch football, then Wednesday's match between Celta Vigo and Barcelona has enough sub-plots to satisfy the needs of most. The two clubs that meet in Galicia share a key architect, admiration for a late-blooming forward, and disappointment over the absence of one mutually loved name.

In regards to the latter, Rafinha Alcantara's cruciate ligament injury has been made even worse by its timing, considering a trip to Balaidos is around the corner. A stadium...

Real Madrid still fighting for La Liga title after 4-2 defeat of Celta

Three observations from Real Madrid's entertaining 4-2 defeat of Celta Vigo on Sunday.

1. Madrid still fighting for the title

Los Blancos fans and pundits were wondering pregame about how their team would set out after coming from Wednesday's super-tough Champions League passage past neighbours Atletico Madrid. Would those exertions count against Carlo Ancelotti's side, or would they be boosted by eliminating Atletico, and then getting Juventus in Friday's semifinal draw?

Saturday, even Ancelotti...
