Newcastle target Myziane Maolida admits Barcelona offer

Lyon whizkid Myziane Maolida insists he wasn't unsettled by interest from abroad last month.

Barcelona and Newcastle United both made attempts for the teenage striker in January.

And Maolida told Onze Mundial: "How did I manage Barça's offers? Naturally with my agent (Philippe Lamboley). I try not to think too much about it because it can slow you down in your football.

"It's not good for a footballer to think about clubs and offers. It disturbs a little. Today, I'm in Lyon, I'm fine. After that, it is certain that the interest of Barça flattered me."
