Sven-Goran Eriksson remains among the leading contenders to land the Fulham manager’s job – see the best odds on every candidate here.

Villarreal midfielder Marcos Senna admits he feels flattered to be linked with a move to Barcelona.

Reports suggest Barca considering a move for Senna as cover for defensive midfielder Sergio Busquets and as a replacement for Yaya Toure, who recently left Camp Nou for Manchester City.

Senna, who helped Spain to the European title in 2008, was plagued by injuries last season and consequently missed out on this summer’s World Cup.

“For me, it’s an honour and a dream that Barca are thinking of me,” said Senna.

“There’s nothing yet, but just the fact they are thinking of me is an honour.”

Senna, who joined Villarreal back in 2002, has recently turned 34, and his agent, Eli Coimbra, believes a move to Camp Nou would be an ideal way to end his career.

“It would be the crowning moment of his sporting career,” Coimbra told El Mundo Deportivo.

“I’m certain that if Barca speak to Villarreal, the club’s directors won’t put up any obstacles to stop him from leaving.

“In these eight years at the club, Senna has never had a problem with the club. On the contrary, he has always been very professional and they would understand that going to Barca would be a unique opportunity.”
