The midfielder is also in the Spain U21 squad and has been linked with a return to Spain at some point. 

Olmo says he is happy in Croatia but he does not rule out a return to his homeland -- or Barça -- at some point in the future. 

"Of course I still follow Barcelona and whenever a teammate like [Carles] Aleña comes on I'm really happy," Olmo told Diario SPORT. 

"They're doing really well this season. They have a team full of talent. Many world class players. Barça are always Barça.

"I don't regret leaving, it was the toughest decision I have taken because I was leaving one of the best clubs clubs in the world, but I'm happy, I have adapted well. 

"Barça is a team that I will always carry inside me. I played there for seven years and I have a special affection for the club so why not [return one day], I would like to but we will see what the future holds. 

"They're one of the best clubs in the world. Who would not want to weat the Barça shirt. I am not closing any door on Barça or any other club right now. 

"But I don't get involved in subjects to do with my future, it's for my agent and my father. It doesn't inerest me that much, either. I am focused on playing fooball."
