REVEALED: Barcelona table opening bid for Villarreal striker Rossi

Barcelona are set for a new round of talks with Villarreal after tabling their opening offer for Giuseppe Rossi last Friday.

Sport says Barca chief Josep Maria Bartomeu met with Villarreal president Fernando Roig last week and delivered their proposal.

Barca have offered €17 million up front for the former Manchester United striker, with another €10 million due over the next two years based on appearances and success.

Roig is insisting on €30 million and while he turned down the bid, he appreciated Barca's efforts and is willing to hear from them again.

Another meeting is mooted in the coming days.
