Ezequiel Chimy Avila spoke about the rumors that he was set to join Barcelona prior to his injury.

Chimy Avila commented on the rumors that he was going to join Barcelona which was ultimately blocked due to his injury. Speaking with Fox Sports in Argentina, here’s what the Osasuna man had to say:

“First I couldn’t go to Barcelona because of a window issue, the only way it could have happened was if a player left them or was injured, I would have gone to Barcelona in a heartbeat.

“I got injured and then [Ousmane] Dembele did, everything happened backwards. I would have signed without thinking about it.”

Avila stated that he stayed commited to Osasuna:

“I had a commitment to Osasuna, they are the ones who are feeding my daughter, not Barcelona, not Real Madrid, not Inter.

“I’m going to work hard for the people who are paying me and the fans that want to see me play.

“I told the coach that I was ready to play, I never thought about pretending to be injured, everyone told me to be calm, it was only two weeks since my agent was called, but I only thought about helping the club avoid relegation.”

  1. For me Avila is a great striker. He has speed, great technique, dribbling and control of the ball and he also has great shooting abilities. Just check some of his goals, not only with Osasuna, but when he used to play with Huesca as well and you will understand what i mean. On the top of it, he is a warrior, he never stops running and fighting, he has the mentality we need and still only 25 years old, he can give even more depth on the already abundance of talent we have up front!

    And something else: Playing for Osasuna does not require to hold on the same amount of pressure as it should with Barcelona but on the other hand, it is not easy to stand out against big teams of la liga when your teammates play for Osasuna than Barcelona or Real Madrid.

  2. IT IS MORE IMPORTANT TO PLAY REGULARLY FOR A DECENT CLUB THAN WARMING THE DUGOUT BY SITTING ON THE BENCH. EVERY PLAYER WANTS TO PLAY FOR A CLUB LIKE BARCA. AND THERE IS NOTHING WRONG IN IT. A PLAYER CAN GET TO PLAY FOR A CLUB LIKE BARCA ON THE BASIS OF HIS MERIT. AND IT’S IMPORTANT TO PLAY FOR SOME ELITE CLUBS. BECAUSE PERFORMING GOOD FOR BARCA AND OSSASUNA IS NOT THE SAME. WHEN A PLAYER PUTS ON THE SHIRT OF BARCA HE WILL FILL TREMENDOUS PRESSURE. IF THAT PLAYER CAN HANDLE THE PRESSURE WELL THEN HALF THE WORK IS DONE AND HE WILL BE TAGGED AS BLUE EYED BOY OR SAVIOUR OF NATIONAL TEAM. OUR BELOVED ❤️ ALBICELESTE IS LOADED WITH GREAT STRIKRS. BUT STILL HAVING MORE WEAPONS IN DISPOSAL IS GREAT. I HOPE HE WILL TURN OUT TO BE A BIG ASSET FOR US.

  3. It looks like every Arg players want to join Barca; becoming a Barca is the obsession and ultimate goal, for money,fame and glory. Haaland, Jadon Sancho, Kai Havertz is an example that every good players will shine with their clubs.
