According to Spanish football magazine Don Balon, Barcelona players used WhatsApp to discuss Golovin's spectacular performance on Thursday, which included two assists and an amazing free-kick goal at the end of the game.
In addition to Barcelona, Juventus, AS Monaco and Manchester United have expressed interest in the magic-heeled midfielder. Golovin commented on the rumored interest by saying that he was "completely neutral," adding that "any player can be sent to any club."
Last season, the 22-year-old took part in 27 Russian Premier League matches, where he racked up 5 goals and 3 assists.
Russia defeated Saudi Arabia 5-0 in its opening match. Russia will now face off against Group A rival Egypt on Tuesday.
