Borussia Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp has admitted his annoyance at rumours that Mats Hummels could be joining Barcelona.
Reports in the German Press earlier this week claimed that the Blaugrana had agreed a €35m deal with the Bundesliga side for the centre-back.
But the Coach has insisted the stories are nonsense.
“Speculation is normal in football, that doesn't bother me,” he told reporters.
“Interest in our players is a good sign. That's not the issue here.
“I'm sure that Hummels has a lot of admirers, but spreading the rumour that we've agreed a price, now that annoys me.
“There was no need, especially when it's not true.”
