Andoni Zubizarreta’s lunchtime meeting with Athletic Bilbao Coach Marcelo Bielsa prompted rumours of possible transfer discussions this week.
Former goalkeeper and current Barcelona sporting director Zubizarreta met with Bielsa on Monday, prompting rumours in the Spanish media that Ander Herrera and Iker Muniain’s availability to the Catalan club may have been discussed.
However, Marca suggest that the meeting was more innocently arranged as a convenience, with the duo both filming for a documentary on San Mames.
Athletic are playing their final season in the historic venue and both the club’s current Coach Bielsa and Zubizarreta, who spent five years in the club’s senior side in the 1980s, were invited to contribute to a documentary on the stadium.
Jorge Valdano is also reported as having recorded for this and having also attended the same meal, alongside Marca’s deputy director, Santiago Segurola.
