Talks are advancing with Manchester City captain Ilkay Gundogan over a summer free transfer.

Xavi admits that Barcelona’s attempts to re-sign Lionel Messi are ‘up in the air’, and that it all depends on whether not the Argentine wants to return to the club.

Jules Kounde has denied rumours that he wants to leave Barcelona this summer, tweeting: “To be 100% clear, I’ve never asked to leave Barcelona and I’m not gonna leave the club. I’m not going anywhere.”
