Barcelona have warned Manchester City off striker Cristian Tello.

The Daily Express says with Ferran Soriano and Txiki Begiristain leaving their posts at the Catalan giants to join City as chief executive and sporting director respectively, speculation has mounted that the Premier League champions will tempt some of Barcelona's key players with some big money bids.

Tello is one of the hottest properties in Europe and can operate as either a winger or a forward.

The Spaniard was heavily linked with a move to Liverpool before the deal collapsed and Brendan Rodgers settled on a loan deal for Real Madrid's Nuri Sahin.
