On Friday, we carried a report from Mundo Deportivo, who explained that Barcelona have turned their attention to signing David Alba.

It was claimed the La Liga winners contacted the Bavarian club, as well as the Austria international’s representatives, and received different responses. Bayern stressed the player is not for sale, but the latter has not ruled out a summer exit.

Monday’s edition of Mundo Deportivo once again discusses the Blaugrana’s interest in the 27-year-old and they claim the ‘4 in 1’ player is on the Spanish champions’ radar.

Alba’s primary position is left-back, but he can also play in the heart of defence, on the left wing and in midfield.

Ernesto Valverde’s side are in the market looking for a backup for Jordi Alba in the left-back position and Alba has been identified as one of the candidates.

Alba’s versatility could be of great help for Barcelona, if he swaps the Allianz Arena for Camp Nou.

Mundo has once again linked the Bayern star to Barca, but today’s report doesn’t suggest if the Catalan club will make an approach for the player.

The message from Germany is very much that he’s not for sale.
