Balde, Koeman's other Ansu: Sport lead with Barcelona's decision to promote 17 year-old Alejandro Balde to the first team, a player who despite his youth is considered potentially good enough to play at the top level. It also teases an interesting piece on some behind-the-scenes details on the long-mooted European Super League.
