During a live broadcast on his Twitch channel with the famous Spanish streamer Ibai Llanos, the central defender of FC Barcelona spoke about the club's news, but also delivered several anecdotes, in particular about a failed transfer: that of Vinicius Jr.
Indeed, the former Spanish international was ready to welcome the Brazilian attacking midfielder in the summer of 2018 before Real Madrid's last offer.
“Vinicius has a lot of talent. Did you know he almost came to Barça? But then Vinicius was offered twice as much. I spoke to him personally before he went to Madrid and during the call the guy confessed to me that he was made to go to Barca. It was done. I don't remember how it was. I was ready to welcome him in the locker room. It was already done. Madrid arrived at the last second and gave him everything."
