For an ordinary football fan, it seems that in such great clubs as “Real,” “Barcelona,” and others, any player should want to play. But sometimes this is not the case.
Sometimes players refuse to play in the Grands and then explain themselves the reasons for that.
1. Kevin Gameiro
After winning the Europa League with Sevilla once again, the French striker became the transfer target of Blaugrana.
In 2016, the Catalans were actively interested in him. But in the end, the transfer did not take place. Kevin talked about the reasons for this in an interview with Le10Sport:
“I had to choose between Barcelona and Atletico that summer. But what should I do in Catalonia? There were Messi, Neymar, and Suarez.
These players want to play until the end of every match and even refuse to leave the pitch 10 minutes before. ”
Atletico eventually bought him for € 28 million, and now he is playing for Valencia.
2. Thiago Silva
The name of the Brazilian central defender has become a symbol of “PSG” in recent years. But it was not excluded that after leaving “Milan,” we saw him in “Blaugrana.”
I asked Barça to clarify some crucial issues. But I did not notice their great desire. I soon realized that this would not be a good situation for me. Despite the great respect for Sandro Rosell, this case did not come out, “Silva told ESPN.
One way or another, it is now clear that on the evening of March 8, 2017, when Paris Saint-Germain suffered the most painful defeat in history at the Camp Nou, a sense of remorse still passed in Thiago’s heart.
3. David Luiz
Do you remember when everyone laughed at PSG for paying Chelsea 50 million euros for Luiz? Then you should know that “Barcelona” was also close to that. Speaking to reporters, the Brazilian defender confirmed this himself.
“It’s true that Barça tried to add me a few times, and everything looked good. But I realized that the team I really wanted were PSG.” – David revealed.
After that, Luiz returned to Stamford Bridge, and in the summer of 2019, he became a member of London’s Arsenal.
