Barcelona admire Valbuena, says agent
Paris: Mathieu Valbuena`s agent has claimed that Barcelona have made him aware of their admiration for the Olympique de Marseille midfielder.
The France international, 28, has caught the attention of a number of top clubs in the past 12 months with his eye-catching performances in Ligue 1.
Though the attacking player`s representative revealed the Catalans had made contact, he was keen to stress that Valbuena is happy at the Stade Velodrome and was not hunting for a Camp Nou move this transfer window.
"I can confirm only that I discussed Mathieu with [Barcelona sporting director] Andoni Zubizarreta some time ago," Christophe Hutteau told RMC Sport.
"He felt the same as their technical staff: that he’s is a very good player whom they all appreciate. He told me that a number of offensive players would leave Barca [this summer].
"But Mathieu is currently at Marseille and is feels happy there."
