Barcelona interested in Luke Shaw?

Today’s rumors start in the Premier League with news that Barcelona are apparently interested in Manchester United flop Luke Shaw.

According to the Mirror, Barcelona want a new left-back and are planning a move with Shaw set to quit Old Trafford after falling out of favour with manager Jose Mourinho.

Barca think he could be a good value back-up to Jordi Alba with Lucas Digne potentially moving on in search of more regular minutes.

Umtiti threatens to leave Barcelona

Another day, another Samuel Umtiti story and today’s is from AS who reckon that the defender has threatened to leave the Camp Nou.

Again it seems to be wages that are the problem with Barca reluctant to meet his demands while Manchester United are seemingly happy to throw money in his direction.

There’s also a real suspicion that Umtiti may be using interest from United to get a better deal out of Barcelona and you suspect this story has some way to go yet.

Inter want to keep Rafinha

Over in Italy Rafinha is enjoying life at Inter Milan and the Serie A side seem to have been impressed with the Brazilian since he arrived from Barca in January.

So much so that they are really keen to keep hold of him when his loan deal expires in the summer, so say ESPN.

Inter have an option to buy the midfielder for 35 milion euros plus 3m in variables but need to talk to Barcelona as they want to try and get the price down a little bit.

Barcelona interested in Roma winger

And finally we end with news that Barcelona are apparently keen on Roma’s young winger Cengiz Under, according to Monchi.

The 20-year-old has caught the eye in the Italian capital this season and Monchi told Turkish radio station Radyospor that he heard Barcelona had asked about him, report AS.

Under has five Serie A goals for Roma this season and the club may get a closer look at him very soon with the two teams set to clash in the Champions League quarter-finals.
