League leaders Barcelona will welcome Eibar on Sunday in a game of round 19 in La Liga. The Catalans are 5 points clear of second placed Atletico Madrid, while Eibar are 13th in the standings, 5 points away from the relegation zone. Earlier this week Barcelona announced the signing of French prodigy Jean-Clair Tobido who will join them in the summer. Another Frenchman in the face of Adrien Rabiot is stalling on the offer from Barca and it will come as no surprise if the Catalans decide to cancel the negotiations.
