I think everyone knows perfectly well that Chelsea and Mourinho wanted to sign me. There was interest from Real Madrid, Barcelona and Manchester City. The last three clubs were really realistic options.
At that time, and this was a two-day period, I was ready to go and compete in the Spanish Championship. I wanted to move to Barcelona, but Real showed more interest in me. Chelsea also had constant contact with Manchester United regarding my transfer..
To be honest, it was two or three days when I spoke with representatives of Barcelona. I remember how one day I sat down and thought: « Imagine that I am playing for Barça, and next to me are Messi, Xavi, Iniesta and Busquets. ». Then Messi played in a different position, he played deeper. I thought I could fit perfectly into the Barcelona squad.
