BARCELONA have had a shadow cast over them in the last couple of years by arch rivals Real Madrid. Los Blancos, under Zinedine Zidane’s leadership, won three Champions Leagues in three seasons. Real Madrid have won the last three Champions Leagues to Barca’s anger Never before had the reformed competition been retained. Enough is enough for Barcelona. They may have enjoyed the domestic success with two LaLiga titles and three Copa del Reys but Barca must now be plotting their return to the top table in Europe. After all, since beating Juventus in the 2015 final, they have been knocked out in the quarter-finals in three successive seasons, most disappointingly to Roma last year despite leading 4-1 after the first leg. Lest we forget, less than a decade ago, Pep Guardiola and Barca were dominating Europe with Xavi and Andres Iniesta conducting play from the middle. Pep Guardiola led Barca to two European triumps – both against Manchester United – in 2009 and 2011 They then beat Paul Pogba’s Juventus in the 2015 final but have gone out in the quarter-finals each year since Now it is time for the Catalan giants to be a dominant force — the dominant force – on the continent. And recruitment next summer could well be pivotal. As exclusively revealed by SunSport, first on the transfer wishlist is Vincent Kompany.”Vincent Kompany?” I hear you say. Well, yes, Vincent Kompany. The Manchester City legend is out of contract in the summer and at this stage only initial talks have been held over an extension. [article-rail-section title=”Most read in football” posts_category=”3″ posts_number=”8″ query_type=”recent” /] If the City captain, still only 32, does leave the Eithad next summer, he will surely not be short of offers. But we understand one from the Nou Camp is likely. A Man City source said: “There are strong rumours around the place Barca have shown interest in taking Vinnie to Spain. “He believes he can perform here for a few more years. “We’ll have to wait and see what happens but Barcelona are admirers of his.” Yes, the Belgium star has a wretched injury record. He’s been out for 790 days with injury since moving to Manchester ten years ago, missing 129 games. Ouch. Vincent Kompany could be in line for a shock move to Barcelona, as SunSport exclusively revealed And yes, Barcelona have an equally-experienced, arguably more successful defender in Gerard Pique at the club who came through La Masia. Plus, he has not missed a minute this season except being rested alongside pretty much the entire first-team squad for the two Copa del Rey legs against Leonesa. But there is still no denying Kompany would bring added guidance and class to the squad and in particular the defence. It is a defence that has been far from water tight this season. Barca have conceded 19 league goals, the same number as 16th-placed Leganes and 17th-placed Villarreal. Kompany would surely be quite the coup and — you never know — it could be the renaissance his career deserves after his treatment table nightmares. He lifted the Premier League title for the third time last season As well as Kompany, Barca look to be in pole position to land Adrien Rabiot. The Paris Saint-Germain midfielder is out of contract next summer and would prefer a move to the Nou Camp, although he has been linked with a number of European clubs including North London rivals Spurs and Arsenal. Sergio Busquets probably has a couple of years at the very top level but Sergio Roberto, Arthur and Carles Alena are ready to succeed one of the finest midfielders of his generation. Big boots to fill, gents. But it’s on the other side of the midfield three where things could get very, very interesting indeed. Paul Pogba. He’s clearly not happy or playing anywhere close to his best at Manchester United. Although Jose Mourinho, Marouane Fellaini, Phil Jones and Co may not be getting the best out of him, one would suggest he would thrive under Ernesto Valverde and alongside Lionel Messi, Philippe Coutinho and so on. We saw what he was capable of at Juventus and he performed on the world stage in Russia but the Old Trafford faithful have been limited to glimpses few and far between. Adrien Rabiot is expected to move to the Nou Camp next summer when his contract at Paris Saint-Germain expires Carles Alena is one of a host of young midfielders ready to make the step int the first team Barca surely have the cash. Pogba would surely be able to express himself. In a similar way to Kompany, a move to the Nou Camp could help Pogba kick on and compete for the trophies his undoubted talent deserves rather than let it go to waste. When Barcelona sold Neymar for £198million last year, it felt like there was a seismic shift in power. That PSG were now the dominant force, they had the control, they were top of the food chain. Barcelona were forced to live in fear, constantly checking back over their shoulder to make sure their valuable assets were not going to be snatched away. They did get Ousmane Dembele but crucially missed out on Coutinho and it was another big blow. But then in January they began the upward curve by signing Coutinho. Statement made: we’re back. Barca had their recession, Barca had their slump. But they are now going through their recovery and on the horizon is the boom the board, fans and city crave. Paul Pogba at Barcelona is certainly an exciting prospect for many He has been stuck on the bench of late and it feels as though his talent is being wasted Barca’s front three this season of Messi, Coutinho and Luis Suarez really is not bad at all. Coutinho’s creativity and ability to find space, work half a yard or find the top corner from distance. Suarez’s deadly finishing, one of the best in the world and the physicality he displays which is so hard to see on the TV. And Messi’s… well Messi is Messi. Oh, and they also have Dembele and Malcom in the squad, two of the next generation of potential superstars. Neither have displayed their best form at the Nou Camp since their respective arrivals. They are undoubtedly obvious talents but did their moves come slightly too soon? We shall have to see. But one thing is for sure: Suarez will not be around for too much longer. He turns 32 next month and despite his phenomenal hat-trick in El Clasico this season, Barca know his time is slowly, slowly running out. The signing of Philippe Coutinho was the real start of the recovery for Barcelona Things have not worked for Ousmane Dembele just yet but he still has time to prove himself Long-term knee problems could take their toll eventually and when they do, Barcelona will need a world-class replacement. Harry Kane has been tipped for a £200m move, while Kylian Mbappe will surely move to one of the two LaLiga giants at some stage in his career. But it is Antoine Griezmann that could be the shorter-term fix. He may have rebuffed Barcelona with that video in the summer, committing his future to Atletico Madrid. Barca, though, will not be willing to take no for an answer that easily and will surely go back in for the World Cup winner. It bodes well for the Champions League quest. Yes of course Real Madrid will be strong again, Juventus and Bayern Munich will challenge and the English sides, especially Guardiola’s Manchester City, will be right up there.

After all, they still have the magician that is Messi and a balanced blend of experienced players and new, exciting talent. So, get Rabiot, Pogba and Griezmann in, win the Champions League and be rightly considered the biggest and best club in Europe once again. Oh, and then get them all – along with Samuel Umtiti – to convince Mbappe to head to the Nou Camp rather than the Bernabeu.

Perennially popular GIF search engine Giphy is rolling out a deeper integration with iPhone keyboards today, along with a new tool for making stickers. The new features, according to Giphy, were enabled in part by its acquisition of TapSlash in January of this year. TapSlash once developed an iOS keyboard called Slash, which was basically a mobile search engine that made it easy to share content without switching apps. The New York-based startup had received around $1.4 million in funding, according to Crunchbase data, with none other than Giphy CEO Alex Chung investing as part of a 2015 seed round that included Techstars and Betaworks (which, as it happens, was also an early investor in Giphy). As a result of the acquisition, which is being announced for the first time today, TapSlash’s five-person team joined Giphy, with TapSlash CEO Cem Kozinoglu heading up Giphy’s mobile app division. And TapSlash itself has been wound down, with its website now redirecting to Giphy. Integrations It’s worth noting here that Giphy is already integrated into a number of third-party messaging apps — for example, Instagram recently rolled out a Giphy integration to let people send GIFs to friends in private messages. But with the Giphy keyboard extension, it takes just a couple of taps on the keyboard to access Giphy’s gargantuan arsenal of GIFs inside any app that supports multimedia messaging. As a side note, Giphy actually launched a standalone GIF-infused keyboard app for iOS called Giphy Keys back in 2016; however, that seems to have disappeared from the App Store — we’ll update here if or when we hear back from Giphy on the matter. Once you’ve updated to the new Giphy app, you will be asked to add Giphy as a new keyboard in your device settings. Then you can tap the little globe icon on your keyboard and switch the language to “Giphy” whenever you want to search for a new GIF. But you will have to switch back to your normal language settings when you want to continue a regular word-based conversation with friends. Giphy keyboard extension in iOS In the second new feature today, those with iPhone X models and above will now be able to create their own animated stickers using the Giphy keyboard extension, or inside the Giphy app itself using the Giphy sticker maker. To access this feature, hit the “add GIF” button, toggle to “sticker,” and then record whatever you want to turn into a sticker. This can be added to your own Giphy account to use wherever you want. Giphy: Sticker maker GIF The GIF that keeps on giving The humble GIF has been thriving for more than three decades since the file format was first introduced. This has been partially due to the rise of mobile messaging — why bother expressing an emotion in words when you can send a colorful looping video instead? Back in March, Google acquired GIF search platform Tenor, which had raised more than $30 million in funding. And Giphy itself has raised north of $150 million in funding since its inception in 2013, with big-name backers including GV, the venture arm of Google’s parent company Alphabet, DFJ, and Lightspeed.
