The Catalans, still awaits the outcome to appeal of their transfer ban. Barcelona has scouted the midfielder times recently so many times and Luis Enrique is also an admirer of the player.
Schade claimed that Barcelona has not made any bid yet and even if they are not ready to sell the Midfielder.
“And we have no intentions of making any changes to our squad at the moment.”
Schade admits, however, he is happy to see Leverkusen’s best players being linked with Europe’s top clubs, with Arsenal also having been linked for the midfielder.
“I would start getting doubts if our players weren’t linked to big clubs,” he admitted. “We’d have done something wrong if that wasn’t the case.”
Bender has a contract with Leverkusen until June 2019.
