On Thursday, English newspapers such as the Daily Mail, linked Newcastle United as being close to a final agreement with Barcelona, over a loan deal next season for talented young forward, Sandro Ramirez.
These reports were based on a story, which had originally appeared in the print edition of Spanish sports daily, Marca.
Stoke City and Tottenham Hotspur were also situated with interest in the 19-year-old striker, with the two sides said to have been monitoring the player carefully, as they weighed up the possibility of opening talks.
Recently, various Premier League clubs have likewise been tipped for loan bids for fellow Barça youngsters, central midfielder Sergi Samper, and forward Munir El Haddadi.
However, according to Mundo Deportivo, the agents of all three players have been told in no uncertain terms, that each of them will be staying at Barcelona next season.
Barcelona B are currently second from bottom in the Segunda, six points behind the safety zone and facing the very real threat of relegation to the Segunda B, the third-tier of Spanish football.
In what has been a disastrous campaign for the B team, the club are keen to rebuild, be it in the Segunda or the Segunda B, based on retaining the most promising talents.
Samper, Munir and Sandro, are therefore regarded as central figures in those rebuilding plans for the B team, although first-team opportunities will also remain possible, at the behest of manager Luis Enrique.
Unless there's a change of heart by the Catalan giants, it currently seems any Premier League clubs hoping to land any these three Spanish gems, will be left disappointed by rejection to their enquiries.
