The question still remains of where he would be playing his football come next season


It is almost sure that he won’t be playing for the Blaugrana again despite the fact that he still gets minutes under Xavi Hernandez in the final six months of his contract with the club but there’s no hope of the two parties resuming talks over a new contract.

One of the club’s who have been linked with a move for the player is Italian giants, Juventus, who see the player as an ideal addition that can help raise the level of their team but they seem to have taken a back seat in the pursuit of the player, largely due to his high salary demands.

Owing to his long history of injuries, the Bianconeri don’t see the need to go all out and pay such huge fee, considering that they already have the likes of Paulo Dybala and Federico Chiesa, players with huge potentials too and also injury prone.

The club would rather focus their attention elsewhere while the likes of Chelsea, PSG and Manchester United are said to be interested in the Frenchman ahead of a move in the summer.


Napoli Coach, Luciano Spalletti has admitted that Barcelona coach was better than him after the Blaugrana knocked out his team in the round of 32 of the Europa League to progress to the next round.

Napoli, who drew 1-1 in the first leg at the Camp Nou couldn’t cope with the Barcelona’s attack in the return leg at the Diego Amando Maradona stadium and Spalletti was the first to admit to the superiority of the Catalans and also admitted to making mistakes that lead to his team outster.

“It has been a shame and I am the first to be responsible when the team doesn’t have the correct attitude,” he said in his post-match press conference. He said. “I am not as good as Xavi, who won. I am realistic.

“My level as a coach doesn’t worsen because of tonight’s defeat, I congratulate him and we move forward.” He further added. Barcelona will face Turkish side, Galatasaray in the next round as they aim to lift the Europa League trophy.
