Tello contract talks on ice

Cristian Tello’s contract talks with Barcelona have been put on hold so the club can focus on hiring a new Coach.

The youngster was set to sign a new deal with the Bluagrana next worth, tying himself to the team until 2018.

But Mundo Deportivo have confirmed that the Camp Nou side will now put those negotiations on ice so as to concentrate on finding Tito Vilanova’s successor.

Newell’s Old Boyss boss Gerardo Martino has been heavily linked in some sections of the Spanish Press, as has Luis Enrique.
