Barcelona's international scout Ariedo Braida has been discussing the club’s reported interest in Schalke star Leon Goretzka.

Braida has reportedly been scouting the Germany international and watched him on Friday during Schalke’s draw with Bayer Leverkusen.

He was also asked about Barca’s interest in the midfielder, but it does not sound like a move is going to happen anytime soon.

"Without doubt he is a great player. But it's too soon for Barcelona,” he said.

“I travel all over the world in search of the best talent. But our demands are so high..."
