Newcastle Forward Ayoze Perez Reveals Barca Interest

Barcelona were interested in signing Newcastle forward Ayoze Perez last summer, the player has revealed.

Following relegation from the Premier League in 2015, Newcastle were faced with losing a number of their star players, with Perez linked with a move away from St James’ Park.

The 23-year-old did have the opportunity to leave the club, however, but says he was never interested in departing despite the offer of a move to Camp Nou on the table.

“I only think of Newcastle, it is true that there was interest in Barca but I am here and we have to keep working,” Perez told Spanish radio station Cadena SER.

“Thank God there was interest from several teams – for a footballer it is important.

“It was a disappointing year due to the relegation.

“Things did not go as I wanted but there were still some clubs interested that knocked on the door.

“It’s a good thing but I have my head in Newcastle and we’ll see what happens in the future.”
