Barca boss Xavi recently admitted that he was not 100 per cent sure whether Aubameyang would be a Barcelona player beyond the deadline later this week.

“There is a market that ends on August 31 and we will see what will happen. I am counting on him and tomorrow it could be important, but we will see the circumstances,” he said.

“We are going to assess. Neither Auba nor Memphis has come out and tomorrow we will be able to use them. We have to see how the squad turns out. The priority is to sign up Kounde.”
