Boateng joins Barca on loan from Sassuolo

Boateng joins Barca on loan from Sassuolo

The former Portsmouth man has scored four goals this season for Sassuolo, and only joined at the beginning of the season.

But Boateng is an arrival few had predicted, with the former Ghana global - who has played for Tottenham, Borussia Dortmund, AC Milan and Schalke, among others - reportedly joining on loan with an €8million purchase option.

Following spells with Tottenham, Borussia Dortmund and Portsmouth, he played some of the best football of his career during a three-year stint with Milan between 2010 and 2013.

Boateng arrives on Monday afternoon after telling his team-mates this morning that he is leaving to join the Catalans.

"Barcelona is a huge opportunity and the emotion is unique". " I'm sad to leave Sassuolo but this is a great chance".

"I remember my debut [with AC Milan] in the Gamper trophy against Barca, and the emotions run high..."

'Don't ask me about Real Madrid... this is all in the past!

"My pro-Real Madrid video from the past?"

Boateng's arrival at the Nou Camp marks his return to La Liga, after featuring for Las Palmas in the 2016/17 season where he scored 10 goals in 28 appearances. "I only want to focus on Barcelona and I hope to score at Bernabéu for the next Clasico". The France forward's injury further reduces Valverde's attacking options going into the two-legged Copa del Rey quarterfinal against Sevilla and league games against Girona and Valencia.
