Guillermo Ochoa Transfer 2014: Mexico Goalkeeper is a Free Agent Now, Linked With Barcelona Move

Mexican goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa has been linked with Barcelona.

The 28-year-old is a free agent after the expiry of his contract with French club Ajaccio, and has previously stated that he would like to stay in France, according to Sky Sports.

Ochoa, whose heroics helped Mexico draw level against Brazil in a World Cup 2014 match, has been linked with Barcelona recently.

However, Ochoa prefers to let his agent handle his transfer affairs.

“I am not worried about what is being said about where I could continue my career, my agent takes care of those things”, Ochoa said to Mediotiempo.

“I am staying calm, as there are options and there is a lot of time for analyzing which is the best.”

Ochoa also acknowledges that his performance against Brazil is good for his career.

“It’s true that having a match like I had against Brazil is a good advertisement for a goalkeeper,” said Ochoa.

Meanwhile, Jorge Berlanga, Ochoa’s agent, says that he is helping Ochoa negotiate with several clubs, Barcelona included.

He said: “I have spoken with Barcelona, yes, in the same way that I have done with 20 other teams.”

“I spoke about the possibility of Memo, I offered him to Barcelona, that is true.”

Berlanga added: “The match that Memo played against Brazil changed everything because the World Cup shows you to the whole world.”

“We will keep on having conversations with the teams that we were already in touch with, but we will also listen to those that have started to approach me now,” Berlanga concluded.
