Barca calm Romeu talk

Barcelona sporting director Andoni Zubizarreta says the club currently have no plans to bring Oriol Romeu back from Chelsea.

• Agent: Romeu could return in 2013

Romeu left the Camp Nou last year, with the deal taking him to Chelsea initially said to contain a buy-back clause that could be exercised in either 2012 or 2013.

Andre Villas-Boas and Chelsea have remained adamant that the clause amounts to no more than a first option should the club decide to sell, and Zubizarreta now appears to have confirmed those claims.

"We have a first option on Oriol Romeu, but at this moment we don't plan to re-sign him," he told RAC1.

Romeu's agent had earlier suggested the midfielder could head back to Barcelona in 2013.
