Deportivo La Coruna full-back Juanfran Moreno held his cards close to his chest when pressed about rumours linking him to Barcelona.

The Watford loanee has been linked with a move to the Spanish champions as an emergency signing to fill the void in the squad left by a long-term injury to Aleix Vidal.

"The situation is not easy, I am not going to fool anyone,” Juanfran told La Opinion A Coruna.

“I am very focused on the game against Leganes. I only give importance to the Leganes match because there is a lot at stake. I have never given more importance to a personal issue than to the collective.

“Now more than ever we must all think about the team.

“I do not want to talk about whether there's a rumour or there's an interest. I am very focused on my work and I have my agent to deal with that. My agents have not told me anything so I'm calm.

“You have to focus what makes people speak well about you, which is to perform well at Deportivo. That is the most important thing. That's why I'm focused on improving so that people can continue to talk well about me, but knowing that the most important thing is to beat Leganes."
