“When I first knew that Barcelona was interested in bringing me to the club, at all times.
“I thought it was a perfect time, for the club and for me.
“I didn’t want to play my whole life in one league. In the Bundesliga, everything went well, it was a good experience for me, but I knew it was another step for my career to go to LaLiga.”
