Chelsea are currently being linked with two Barcelona players Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Frenkie de Jong.

Barcelona boss Xavi Hernandez has however ruled out the two players from leaving Camp Nou.

Although Xavi understands anything can happen before transfer deadline day, he insists that Aubameyang and De Jong are a part of his squad.

“I am counting on him. I’m really delighted with him, he can help us,” Xavi said of Aubameyang, while speaking at a press conference on Friday.

“Those I am not counting on already know, they know won’t play. Between now and 31 August, different things can happen, but I like Auba, he can help us.”

On de Jong, Xavi added: “It is the same as Auba, he is important for me. He’s in the squad and we will use him.

“I don’t know what will happen between now and 31 August, but not just with Frenkie or with Auba, with almost everyone in the squad.”
