Marin plays down Barca links

Villarreal left-back Adrian Marin “knows nothing” about speculation linking him with Barcelona after a fourth consecutive start on Saturday against Real Betis.

The teenager has recently been touted as a possible target for La Blaugrana in the summer, but he was unable to shed any light on his future after the stalemate at El Madrigal, which ended the Yellow Submarine’s run of six straight wins in La Liga.

“The truth is that I know nothing,” he was quoted as saying by Marca.

“I woke up and saw the news that they were talking about me, but I think it’s just a rumour and I’m not giving it any importance.

“I'm just focused on working hard every day with my colleagues to continue improving and gaining experience, along with my team and the coaching staff.”
