Barcelona sports chief Abidal insists no transfer policy shift

New Barcelona sports chief Eric Abidal insists they haven't changed their transfer policy.

At the age of 31, Arturo Vidal is a somewhat different signing to what Blaugrana fans have become accustomed to.

"You talk about a philosophy, but there were other players [Barcelona were interested in]," the Frenchman stated to reporters.

"I think we have to adapt to the squad and make it as strong as possible.

"The coach has to have decisions to make."
