Barcelona are ready to promote from within as they continue to be frustrated in their search for a new wide-player.

El Mundo Deportivo says Barca have drawn a blank in moves for Manchester City ace Robinho and Arsenal star Andrey Arshavin. Benfica winger Angel di Maria and Valencia's Juan Mata are also on Barca's shortlist, but their asking prices are deemed too steep.

Instead, Barca coach Pep Guardiola is ready to go back to his old Barca Atleti team and promote both Israel international Gai Assulin and Jeffren Suarez to his senior squad for the new season.
