Reports are out claiming that Barcelona can forget about trying for Manchester United winger Angel di Maria.
Barca directors have discussed moving for the former Real Madrid star with coach Luis Enrique in recent days.
It’s been suggested contact has been made with Di Maria’s camp and Barca have received encouragement.
However, El Mundo Deportivo reported that any deal will be a non-starter, as there is a clause in Di Maria’s contract preventing United from selling him to Barca.
Real president Florentino Perez insisted on the clause when negotiating the Argentine’s sale last summer.
Bayern Munich and PSG are also being linked with Di Maria.
