According to some of this morning's tabloids Hibs are in talks with
Barcelona about a possible pre-season friendly at Murrayfield in the summer.

Hibs pulled out of a pre-season friendly with the Catalan giants last year, paving the way for
Edinburgh rivals Hearts to step in and face the La Liga Champions in front of 50,000 at the home of rugby, with Barcelona running out 3-1 winners over the grunts

Barcelona have already revealed their intention to have their pre-season camp up at Andrews for the second year in a row and it is thought that the Hibs hierarchy are seeking out their Barca counterparts about a game in July, although this could be disrupted if Hibs fail to qualify for the Uefa Cup and enter the Intertoto Cup instead.

It is also understood that Barcelona are keen on a re-match with Dundee Utd up at Tannadice, after the sides played against each other last pre-season, with Barcelona winning 1-0 through a Thierry Henry goal.
