Report: Barcelona chief negotiator Raul Sanllehi on Arsenal, Manchester City radar

Arsenal and Manchester City are believed to be considering an approach for Barcelona chief negotiator Raul Sanllehi, according to a report.

Arsenal and Manchester City have considered making an approach for Barcelona chief negotiator Raul Sanllehi, according to a report.

Sanllehi has been at Camp Nou for the last 15 years, working his way up to become director of football and in charge of transfer negotiations.

However, Marca reports that Barca president Josep Maria Bartomeu will present a new sporting structure in the next general assembly, which will see the role of negotiator with other clubs and the likes of UEFA and FIFA be absorbed into another position.

The report goes on to suggest that Sanllehi will leave of his own volition as he does not fit into the new system and, according to The Mirror, the Gunners and the Citizens are eager to hire the director.

Sanllehi began life at the club as manager of Barca's merchandising wing in 2002 just a year before the arrival of Joan Laporta as president.
