Barca sporting director Mateu Alemany is today in England at City's club offices discussing transfer plans between the two clubs.
Raheem Sterling and Ferran Torres are both being mentioned as targets for Barca, while Sport says Alemany has also asked after Bernardo.

However, with their financial situation now improving, Barca are reviving their interest in Bernardo.
The Catalans know City would only consider a straight cash sale for the midfielder.
