Monaco right-back Vanderson has admitted he’s more than happy to be linked with top clubs, including Barcelona, after a summer of speculation about his future.

Vanderson was one of dozens of right-backs linked with a move to the Camp Nou as Xavi’s side sought to fill a problem position this season.

The Brazilian says he’s only thinking about Monaco right now but has no problem with rumors linking him with other clubs.

“It’s great to hear Barcelona and United ‘love’ you, he said.

“It’s fantastic to know your name is being mentioned by the big clubs. We’re starting the season well with Monaco, now I’m focused only in that.”

Barcelona have since signed Joao Cancelo to play right-back for the rest of the campaign. although the Portugal international has only arrived on season-long loan. There is no purchase option included in the deal.
