Liverpool and Manchester United are ‘pushing’ to sign Barcelona youngster Mikayl Faye, who has this week met with the Catalan club to discuss his future.

That’s according to Mundo Deportivo, who say the youngster remains determined to establish himself at the Camp Nou rather than move on this summer.

Faye has been a regular for Barcelona’s youth sides this season and is already knocking on the door of the first team.

He’s also earned himself a growing list of admirers and Barcelona already rejected a €9m bid for him in the January transfer window. Liverpool and Manchester United are among those keen and are ‘pushing’ to secure his signature.

With that situation developing Faye’s agents Juanma López and Andy Bara travelled to Barcelona on Wednesday to meet with Barcelona’s sporting director Deco.

They wanted to know first hand what the club intends to do with their player and were informed that Faye is part of their club plans for the future. He will again be in the first-team squad for pre-season training in the summer. All plans are for him to be in the team next season too.

That will depend on the player taking advantage of any opportunities given to him by Xavi, or whoever it is that replaces him at the club.

Thus, a move to Liverpool or Manchester United is not on the agenda for him, his agents or Barcelona, despite the Premier League duo pushing to try and get him. Whether that remains the case when Barcelona are desperately trying to balance the books again this summer, is another matter.
