According to the Daily Telegraph, Barcelona are the latest club to join to race to sign Monaco’s Thomas Lemar.

We failed with a huge £90m bid for Lemar in the summer as it looked like Sanchez was bound for Man City and it now looks like we have missed out on the Frenchman if Barcelona are truly in for him.

Lemar was very close to signing for us when Sanchez was all set to join City, but both deals fell through due to the lateness of the City bid.

Liverpool are also said to be interested in the player who also look to be losing some of their best players this summer including Philippe Coutinho.

Sanchez still remains tight-lipped about his future and we find him in the same position as his team mate Mesut Ozil, with less than a year left on their contracts.

With the lack of news about the situation, it looks more likely each as its day that both will leave either in January or next summer.
