Barca back in for Dembele

Remember those Ousmane Dembele to Barcelona rumors? Well, they're back with a bang with Mundo Deportivo claiming he is back on Barca’s agenda.

The departure of Thomas Tuchel from Borussia Dortmund could prove key to landing Dembele who has apparently already told Robert Fernandez that he will play for Barca one day.

Di Maria to replace Arda at Barca

Over in France, however, it’s a different story entirely with Le Parisien claiming Barcelona’s sights are set very firmly on Angel Di Maria.

The Argentine is being considering as a potential replacement for Arda Turan and the club reportedly feel Lionel Messi can tempt his countryman into a move to Camp Nou.

Benfica sign Semedo replacement?

Nelson Semedo has moved a step closer to Barcelona, according to AS, after Benfica signed his replacement Alex Pinto from Vitoria de Guimeraes.

While Hector Bellerin remains Barca's first choice they could still turn to Semedo with the player's agent Jorge Mendes confident the full-back will move on this summer.

Cruyff plays down Barca return

A few days ago the rumors reported that Jordi Cruyff was set to head back to Barcelona and take on an upstairs role after impressing at Maccabi Tel Aviv.

Today that does not seem the case with Marca claiming the 43-year-old was cool on reports when asked and sought to play down talk of an offer from the Blaugrana.
