Riise flattered by Barca talk

The Spanish giants are in the market for a new left-back following Sylvinho’s departure earlier this week.

Reports suggest Roma ace Riise is one of the players Barcelona are targeting.

“It’s flattering and great to be linked with a club like Barcelona.” Riise told Aftenbladet.

“They have clearly been the best club all year. But I am a Roma player and this is just a rumour.”
