In the columns of The Teamthe French international explains why he preferred to join Barça when Manchester City and Chelsea wanted to enlist him.

Firstly, I arrive in a huge club, which has known good times and which, lately, has been earning less. I’m coming to a project that I wouldn’t call a reconstruction, because we already have a competitive team, but rather a rebound. It interested me to be part of this new wave, in search of titles, and to put Barça back where it has always been, among the best, he explained, before admitting to having been contacted by Thomas Tuchelthe former coach of the Blues. I also felt a desire to have me come, but I simply preferred Xavi’s speech. Manchester City? players had to leave the club first“.
