Euro memories:

Alba will have fond memories of the European Championships. Four years ago he was the undoubted left-back of the tournament as Spain won in Poland and Ukraine.

He even bagged himself a goal, finishing off a sweeping move as Spain demolished Italy in the final 4-0 and win his first international tournament.

Could he be in the Premier League next season?

Alba would be mad to leave Barcelona, surely?

However, Pep Guardiola is heading to Manchester City and helped him become the player he is at the Nou Camp.

Manchester City are desperate for a new left-back this summer and Alba could be the perfect candidate if he could be lured away from his beloved Barca.

But if one man can, it would be the new City boss Guardiola.
