Recently linked to both Atletico Madrid and Barcelona FC, 23-year old Spanish midfielder and AS Roma up-and-comer Gonzalo Villar stated: "Years ago, playing abroad was kind of a taboo for Spanish footballers. Foreign players joining La Liga were instead often appreciated. AS Roma wanted to loan me out right after having signed me first, most likely leaving me play for Elche. But Fonseca wanted me from the start, and, when I talked to him, I knew joining Giallorossi was the right pick for me".
