    Fifa decided last week that Barrios can transfer for free, after his Chinese club failed to pay his wages for several months.

    Is he worth a shout as a low cost alternative?

    I liked Barrios, he had an absolutely outstanding record for Dortmund and I wouldn't mind him on a free at all.

    Have you got a link with the info?

    I didn't see him play enough really but his record suggests on a free he'd be a good option to have

    GUANGZHOU, June. 29 (Xinhua) -- Chinese club Guangzhou Evergrande are taking a battle agianst Lucas Barrios to FIFA, requesting a compensation of 25 million Euros and a 6-month sporting sanction, a top club official told Xinhua on Friday.

    "The club officially submitted a statement of claim to FIFA on Friday as Barrios has breached the contract without any just cause," the official told Xinhua.

    According to a leaked copy of the document, Guangzhou Evergrande requested Barrios to pay a total of 25 million Euros compensation. They also urged FIFA to give the Paraguayan striker a 6-month sporting sanction.

    "Order Lucas Ramon Barrios to pay the total amount of EUR 25,000,000 as compensation for the breach of the Employment Contract without just cause.

    Condemn Lucas Ramon Barrios to an ineligibility of 6 months according to the sporting sanctions stipulated in Article 17.3 of the FIFA Regulations." said the document.

    The 28-year old Paraguayan striker has disappeared from the pitch since a month ago, when Chinese Super League (CSL) entered a short break at the end of May. Barrios returned to his country as he was in the national squad for the 2014 World Cup qualifier against Chile. But he never come back to the south China city of Guangzhou until Friday.

    "The player was absent of all the training sessions and two CLS matches against Qingdao and Shanghai," the club official said.

    Early this week, German and Argentinian media reported Barrios had asked FIFA to terminate his contract as the club defaulted on payments. Reports said the Ex-Durtmond striker was now a free player and seeking for a new home in Bundesliga.

    However, FIFA told Xinhua that they had never received such appeal from Barrios until Wednesday.

    "To this date, FIFA does not appear to have received any formal claim concerning an alleged contractual dispute opposing the player Lucas Barrios to the Chinese club, Guangzhou Evergrande FC," the football governing body said in an E-mail on Wednesday.

    The club said they had hornered the contract with the player all the way and it was Barrios who breached the contract without any reason.

    "It was utterly ridiculous, the club made every payment clear and on time, we have complied the contract with Barrios all the time," a club official told Xinhua, "during his absence from June. 6 to now (June.28), neither had Barrios or his agent make any contact to the club."

    "We have waited for Barrios' return for more than 3 weeks, now it is the time to take action." he added

    According to FIFA, A Dispute Resolution Chamber will proceed the contractual dispute between the club and the player. The football governing body has not made any comment on this issue until Friday.

    Barrios, who helped Borussia Dortmund win two titles in Bundesliga from 2010 to 2012, had signed a four-year deal with Guangzhou Evergrande in June last year on a record breaking transfer fee of 8.5 million Euros and reported yearly salary of 5 million.

    Winning the CSL title for two consecutive years, Guangzhou Evergrande has becoming the most successful football club in China. Beside the record buy, the club also poured millions of Euros on Dario Conca, Elksson and Muriqui.

    I don't really have a link as I got the info from the printed version of German Kicker magazine. As far as the football news go, I found the Kicker very reliable.

    In the article, it reported that Barrios said that he found it really bizarre, as he had to go to some office every month for his wage and pick up a wad of cash, instead of having it transferred to his bank account as any normal business would've done. Initially they were paying him only the half of promised amount, and later not at all. First Drogba and now this. Any football player should be wary of lucartive offers from the Chinese league.

    If he's fit, ready to fight his way back into European football, willing to accept reasonable wages and available on a free we could do a lot worse.

    Very good player at his best. Quite a few ifs though, I think we will look elsewhere if we're looking for a striker option. Can't see us going for him as our first choice starter either.
