Spain Under-21 star Dani Olmo has been talking about his future and has not ruled out a return to Barcelona.

The winger impressed over the summer and played a key role in helping Spain win the Under-21 European Championship in Italy.

Olmo spent six years at Barcelona as a youngster before leaving for Dinamo Zagreb in 2014 and says a return is not entirely out of the question.

“We are talking about the best leagues in the world and they all have positive things.

“LaLiga is something more special because for me it is my home, with my people, but those of Germany, England and Italy also attract me very much.

“[Barcelona] was my home for six years and ... why not? We will see. I do not know if that door is closed or not.”

The 21-year-old was also asked about specific players he would like to play with and when Lionel Messi’s name was mentioned answered “Messi is one of the best players in the world. Who would not like to play with him?”

Olmo has reportedly attracted plenty of attention after scoring three goals for Spain at the Under-21 Euros. Clubs such as Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal, Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund have all been linked with a move for the youngster.
