Barcelona wait for Guardiola OK to go for Robinho, Mata

Barcelona chiefs are waiting on Pep Guardiola to give them the green light to buy a new attacker. After allowing Zlatan Ibrahimovic to leave for AC Milan yesterday, El Mundo Deportivo says Barca directors have told Guardiola there is cash available to buy again before the market deadline.

An attacking midfielder is what Guardiola is seeking and Valencia winger Juan Mata and Manchester City's Robinho are the two targets put forward to the coach by Barca chiefs.

Ajax striker Luis Suarez has also been mentioned, but if he is to buy again, Guardiola is expected to move for a player capable of playing in midfield and on the flanks.
