Vorm plays down Barcelona talk
Swansea goalkeeper Michel Vorm has moved to play down rumours
linking him with a move to Barcelona.
Rumours of a move to Barcelona gathered pace after Vorm spent
last weekend in Barcelona with his family after being given
extended time off by Swansea with the Welsh club not having a game
in the Premier League at the weekend.
Vorm’s future at Swansea has been the subject of speculation for
some time with the likes of Arsenal and Liverpool credited with an
interest in the Dutchman.
Barcelona have also been linked with Vorm as they search for a
replacement for Victor Valdes with the keeper set to leave Camp Nou
after turning down a new deal at the club.
Vorm insists his trip to Barcelona was just a coincidence and he
denied travelling there to sign a deal with the Spanish giants.
“So no, I was not in Barcelona to sign a deal,” Vorm told
“No one of that club contacted my agent Wessel Weezenberg.”
Vorm does expect Barcelona to sign a new goalkeeper as expected
Valdes does leave the club this summer.
“However I expect something will happen there for the
goalkeeping position,” added Vorm. “If Valdes will leave, Barcelona
have to adapt.”
