Bartra set for Spain return?

Former Barcelona defender Marc Bartra could return to Spain this month with Borussia Dortmund willing to sell, according to reports.

The 27-year-old has made a total of 51 appearances for the German giants since joining from the Blaugrana in the summer of 2016.

A report in Kicker states that he is now keen to leave the club following on from the arrival of  Manuel Akanji from FC Basel this month.

The report continues that a return to Spain is the most likely destination although he is open to ideas, with Sevilla rumoured to be among the clubs most interested.

Bartra suffered an arm injury in last year’s bomb attack on the Borussia Dortmund team bus before a Champions League tie with Monaco.
