Barcelona’s international scout Ariedo Braida has been discussing the club’s reported interest in Schalke star Leon Goretzka.
Braida has reportedly been scouting the Germany international and watched him on Friday during Schalke’s draw with Bayer Leverkusen.
He was also asked about Barca’s interest in the midfielder, but it does not sound like a move is going to happy anytime soon.
“Without doubt he is a great player. But it’s too soon for Barcelona,” he said.
“I travel all over the world in search of the best talent. But our demands are so high…”

Goretzka is out of contract next summer, which has led to huge speculation over his future.
At the moment it seems the smart money is on him moving to Bayern Munich, although it seems he may have his pick of clubs.
