Sanchez Explains Reasons Reject Barcelona
New Tottenham Hotspur player Davinson Sanchez explains why he refused to move to Barcelona and chose to move to White Hart Lane.
Sanchez, a 21-year-old center-back, has long been named a star by Eredivisie watchers, and has attracted Europe’s top clubs with his performances with Ajax through the Europa League final last season.
The tall defender who has defended the Colombian side twice, is monitored by Chelsea, Manchester United and Barcelona earlier this season.
But the stopper broke into North London, with a Spurs club record of 42 million pounds for his services last week.
“For me Barcelona has always been one of the best in the world but the conditions there today are not the best.”
“Fortunately decisions are made on the principle of football, not in terms of marketing.”
