Barcelona had accepted a €15 million offer from Zenit St Petersburg for El Haddadi, but the player isn’t keen on a move to Russia.
Instead, Ligue 1 appears his most likely destination, with Lyon and Marseille interested amid reports Barcelona would now be prepared to accept €10m.
CEBALLOS WANTS BARCA NOT MADRID
Ceballos’ impressive form for Spain at the European Under 21 Championship has prompted a scramble for his signature, with Atletico Madrid and Juventus also showing an interest.

BARCA STEAL MARCH ON BONUCCI
Barcelona are leading the race to sign Juventus defender Leonardo Bonucci, according to the Daily Mirror .
Chelsea had hoped to sign the Italy international, but the centre-back himself would prefer a move to Camp Nou if he were to leave the Serie A champions.
MAHREZ TO JOIN ARSENAL
Arsenal are set to announce the signing of Leicester City winger Riyad Mahrez in the next few days, reports Calciomercato .
Mahrez has been looking to leave Leicester this summer and had reportedly been holding out for an offer from Barcelona.

BARCA TARGET BONUCCI

Bonucci has been linked with Chelsea and Manchester City following reports of a falling out with Juve coach Massimiliano Allegri.
However, Barcelona are weighing up an approach for the experienced Italy international as new coach Ernesto Valverde looks to improve his defensive options.
BELLERIN WANTS BARCA MOVE
Hector Bellerin will meet with officials at Arsenal to inform them of his desire to join Barcelona, Marca reports.
Barca have long been trying to lure the right-back back to Camp Nou, but the long-term contract he recently signed with the Gunners presents a problem for the Catalan side. The 22-year-old has already spoken to the Catalan side and will now try to force a move.

PAULINHO NOT FOR SALE
Guangzhou Evergrande have no intention of selling Paulinho to Barcelona, according to Nanfang Daily.
“Up to now we haven't received anything official from Barcelona, and all the rumours were fanned by the agents," a senior club official told the paper.
BARCELONA WANT HERRERA & MAHREZ
Barcelona are looking at both Ander Herrera and Riyad Mahrez as transfer options if their move for Marco Verratti does not work out, according to Sport.es .
New Barca boss Ernesto Valverde has made PSG midfielder Verratti his top target, but will turn to Manchester United's Herrera or Leicester City's Mahrez instead if he cannot get his top target.
RACE ON TO SIGN LEMAR
Barcelona, Manchester City and Chelsea are among the clubs set to battle for Monaco winger Thomas Lemar, according to L'Equipe .
Arsenal have seen a bid rejected for the France international while Tottenham are planning an offer of their own.

VERMAELEN COULD STAY AT BARCA
Barcelona could keep former Arsenal defender Thomas Vermaelen in their squad for next season, according to Sport .
Vermaelen spent last season on loan at Roma, but tentative interest from Premier League and Serie A clubs has yet to result in offers, and so he could form part of new Barca coach Ernesto Valverde’s plans.
NO OFFERS FOR MAHREZ
Leicester City have yet to receive any bids for Riyad Mahrez, who has been linked with Arsenal, Barcelona and Chelsea, according to the Leicester Mercury .
Mahrez is keen to leave Leicester this summer and, after growing tired of waiting for Barcelona to make an approach, was reportedly ready to accept a four-year contract at Arsenal, but his current club have yet to field any bids.
