Fernandes hopes successful career at Barca
Having the fortune to play with Leo Messi at Barcelona leaves Matheus Fernandes at a loss for words, but he is confident that he starts the story with the club. In January, Barca agreed to sign Fernandes from Palmeiras for an initial fee of 7 million. Still, with this transfer not passing until July, he joined Real Valladolid on loan for the remainder of the 2019-20 campaign. However, the midfielder could not debut before the coronavirus pandemic led to a halt to the engagement season in March. Even though Matheus is not sure that his short-term future holds. He is confident that he will enjoy a flourishing career at Camp Nou.
When asked about the prospect of the game, along with Messi, Fernandes said to journalists: “I can’t explain it. To think that I will soon play with the best player in the world, I don’t even know what to say.
This was my dream to play for Barcelona
“It is a dream to get into this great club and be able to be part of it.” I aim to play for the Blaugrana. My contract with Valladolid ends in June, and I want to be at Barcelona, this is the dream of every child. “If I can’t go to Barcelona right now, I will continue to study at Valladolid or at another club where I am valued. He’s glad to be there and play in LaLiga. “I think Barca will succeed. I have the potential for that. He thinks he fits into the style of the game. “Fernandes wishes he can be there and stay there always and make a story at Barcelona. The 21-year-old added: “I am pleased because Barca showed interest in me.
Matheus will do everything for the Blaugrana
I have great attributes, but I am going to develop much more there. “I wish to be there for a long time and hope to win many titles and bring a lot of happiness to the club and the fans. If the club is happy, I will.” Matheus highlighted Sergio Busquets and Xavi emphasized as his primary role models and hoped to be just as crucial to Barca as they have bee. “I’m a box-to-box midfielder, but I also like to play a holding role in protecting the defense. I’m a technical player,” he said. He knows that he still has something to learn, and aware of this, and he needs to try to improve there in Valladolid, but Matheus thinks he’s going to mark an era at Barcelona.
“I need to finish better, play faster. I think that I am a good marker, I have good positioning, a good pass, and most importantly. This is the will, and I have the will to improve and do everything possible for Barcelona”. I like the way Sergio Busquets play a lot, and I always noticed him, Xavi too. I’ll try to do everything to be able to get closer to the level of these great footballers, knowing that I still have something to learn.”
