The sportive director of the Seville FC, Monchi, has conceded a brief interview to "Catalonia Ràdio" in which it has explained how were the negotiations with the FC Barcelona by the traspaso of the experienced French forward of 29 years, Kevin Gameiro; some contacts that did not arrive to fluctuate, since the ariete Frenchman finish recalando in the Athletic of Madrid.

Monchi Has left clear with a curious metaphor why the ones of Luis Enrique could not do with the signing. "It was an interest that lasted the time that lasted the proposal and said that no. If you want to buy me this jacket, that costs 60 euros, and offer me five, as I say that no".

"The offer of the FC Barcelona did not arrive neither to the necessary minimum, or this was what transmitted me"

"It did not arrive neither to the necessary minimum. It was what transmitted me the agent. I did not speak in any moment with the Barça. Neither with Robert neither with Raül Sanllehí", comments Monchi, in no uncertain terms, on the shy interest of the Barcelona in Gameiro, that rather was a score.

Gameiro Had in the Seville a clause of rescission of 40 millions and the Athletic hired him in return of 30 millions more 7 in variables, whereas the Barcelona fichó finally to the young forward of Valencia CF, Paco Alcácer, by 30 millions more 2 millions in variables. The difference, in any case, is that Alcácer has so only 23 years, whereas Gameiro has 29 and is about to to go in in the final stretch of his career.

This yes, the French has begun with good foot in the Athletic, when being marking goals forming a perfect attack with Yannick Carrasco and Antoine Griezmann. Regarding Alcácer, still has not achieved to première to level goleador with the Barça.
