Barcelona tried to sign their former player Dani Olmo on the transfer deadline day this summer. But the move failed to materialise despite Olmo taken part in negotiations on the final day.
The RB Leipzig player has now admitted that everything happened too fast with Barcelona. Olmo told Suddeutsche Zeitung, via Marca: “There was no time to even think about a transfer, everything happened too quickly.”
“For now I have my mind on the season with Leipzig, and I’m fine here. I really want to play, to fight in international tournaments again. That is my motivation.”
Barcelona sporting director Mateu Alemany also revealed about the attempted Olmo transfer during the presentation of Luuk de Jong. He said: “We could talk about many players because in the last days of the market we began various negotiations with players who could’ve helped us in the offensive third.”
“I would not like to talk about professionals who are not here but we have several windows and several players under control.”
“Many things could happen, but in the end it happened that Luuk de Jong arrived as our forward.”
