The first, according to him same admits, went the past summer, when the Barça also combed the market in search of an acting forward for the charrúa. "Already to start with, this of the Barça is something that could have sucedido a lot before. The past summer, for example. They collected information on me several times. This winter could have done also. It did not do , it is like this, and it does not suppose that it do more advance", it commented, leaving fall that this train already happened.

In spite of not being able to finish in the Barcelona, the one of Sarcelles showed totally despreocupado and satisfied that a so big team interested by him.
