Barcelona complete double defensive swoop

Barcelona have completed the double signing of Gianluca Zambrotta and Lilian Thuram from Juventus.

The move stabilises the only part of the Catalans which was considered to be their weakest point,their defence .Zambrotta can play on either side of defence,which gives Frank Riijkard more options in defence.

Veteran centre back Thuram was one of the pillars of the French squad which reached the finals.He can play at right as well.This will now reduce the burden on Carlos Puyol without whom the Barca defence can look quite lost.

Real Madrid were in the running for Zambrotta too and the Catalans will be very pleased to steal him from under the noses of their arch rivals.

With a team that already has the likes of Deco,Ronaldinho,Etoo and company ,this move will make Barcelona a more dominant force in European football.Real Madrid will have their work cut out this season if they have to win the La liga
