Some details about Ibi's contract deal:

Netherlands midfielder Ibrahim Afellay completed his transfer to Barcelona from PSV Eindhoven when he signed a 4-1/2 year contract on Friday.

Barca sporting director Andoni Zubizarreta told a news conference the 24-year-old would be the only player brought in during the January transfer window and the Spanish champions' squad was now complete.

PSV received three million euros ($3.9 million) for Afellay and the attacking midfielder's new contract includes a buyout clause worth 100 million euros, Barcelona said on their website (www.fcbarcelona.cat).

The Dutch club would also get an unidentified percentage of any future transfer fee if Afellay was sold on, the statement added.

He will be eligible to make his first appearance for Barca in the La Liga match at home to Levante on Jan. 2.

his first impression of pep
The meeting with sir Guardiola and the first tour in Camp Nou, with a visit to the dressing room, made a deep, deep impact.

What a charisma does that man have, unbelievable. We spoke for twenty minutes. He wore casual clothes, but made the impression of a three-piece suit. So masculine, and full of confidence. And a whole clear vision about football. He assured me that I will quickly win here. That’s what all players do, according to him. He also gave me an insight in what he focuses on, during training. A lot, otherwise everything with the ball and moving, always moving. They train like they play, that seems lovely to experience. A lot of combination, close to each other and with speed. He has all the confidence that I will get to play. ‘You are a multifunctional player’, he said. ‘You are functional in four, maybe even five positions. That is given to a few players nowadays.’ Yes, he really gave me a good feeling.”
