Bellerin to force Barca move

Hector Bellerin is determined to play for Barcelona next season and will head back to Arsenal, after his international commitments are over, to tell the Gunners the good news, report Mundo Deportivo.

The right-back knows it will be a difficult deal, with Arsenal reluctant to sell, but will argue they should listen to the Catalans as they stand to make a huge profit if they allow him to leave.

Kondogbia is Barca’s Plan C

Should Barcelona fail to land Marco Verratti and Paulinho, they will turn their attentions to none other than Geoffrey Kondogbia, so say Goal.

Apparently Barca have already made contact with the Inter man, although the rest of the report does not seem convinced a deal could actually happen. Curious.

Morey staying at Barca

Only yesterday we were hearing how Mateo Morey was to be the latest starlet whisked away from Barcelona, but wait what’s this? Bayern Munich have changed their minds?

They certainly have, according to Sport, who say the German giants were not keen on the transfer being leaked, oh and also that, Barcelona belatedly intervened to stop the deal going ahead.

Keita keen on Barca

RB Leipzig midfielder Naby Keita has said that he sees himself playing for “one of the biggest clubs” in the world in the future, citing Barcelona as a prime example.

However, no matter how Sport try to spin the article, he also mentions Real Madrid and Manchester City, so we can take that one with a giant pinch of salt.

Tello to have Betis medical

Cristian Tello’s move to Real Betis appears to be inching ever closer, with all parties now close to an agreement, according to Marca, after further talks.

Negotiations will continue on Thursday, with the 25-year-old also set for a medical as he closes in on a permanent departure from Camp Nou.

Rafinha: Future is uncertain

Rafinha has been a regular in our rumor round-ups and he features yet again after admitting he is unsure of his future.

The midfielder, who is still recovering from his knee injury, told Marca: "My future is open and only God knows what will happen.”
