Barcelona midfielder gives thoughts on Man Utd interest

Fermin Lopez

Fermin Lopez has admitted he is not interested in reports of a move to Manchester United, instead reaffirming his commitment to Barcelona.

Earlier this summer, reports in Spain claimed United had launched a bid worth €30m (£25.4m) for Fermin, only for Barcelona to reject the proposal and insist they would only consider parting ways with the young midfielder for a huge sum.

Barcelona remain committed to Fermin and the feeling is clearly mutual, with the midfielder telling Relevo that his focus is solely on a future at Camp Nou.

“I don’t read the press, I’m not really interested,” he said. “The important thing is that I want to be at Barca and I only think about Barca. Nothing else.”

Barcelona recently managed to register Fermin in their squad for next season alongside left-back Alejandro Balde. Inigo Martinez and Vitor Roque are both yet to be registered, as is manager Hansi Flick.

Fermin has long voiced a desire to remain with Barcelona, recently confirming that he hopes to sign a new contract with the La Liga side.

“I’m hopeful that [contract talks] will work out,” he told Mundo Deportivo. “Playing for Barca has been a lifelong dream for me, and now that dream is coming true.

“I wish to stay at Barca for many years to come.”

Oriol Romeu could leave Barcelona this summer, with former employers Girona keen on a reunion, while doubts remain over the future of the versatile Sergi Roberto, whose contract is due to expire at the end of the month.
