The Barcelona B midfielder has been promoted to the senior team this preseason and will be named to the squad that will face Hamburg in a friendly match.Jonathan dos Santos continues to be on the radar for La Liga teams, with the Barcelona B midfielder being named as a target for both Betis and Malaga.
Barcelona's Director of Football Andoni Zubizarreta promoted Dos Santos to the first team for the length of Barca's preseason campaign, but rumors still abound that the Mexican midfielder might be stamping at least a temporary exit from the Nou Camp.
According to Record, sources close to dos Santos have revealed that there are several La Liga teams interested in the player's services, with Real Betis and Malaga being the top two candidates vying for him.
However, it is dos Santos' only wish to break through with the Blaugrana's senior team, an issue that might delay or completely derail a transfer involving the midfielder.
In the meantime, new manager Tito Vilanova has shown an interest in at least gauging dos Santos' talent, as he has named the Mexican player to the roster that will face Hamburg in the team's opening preseason fixture at the Imtech Arena.
