Girona forward Cristhian Stuani has revealed that Barcelona wanted to sign him in the January transfer window.
Stuani is enjoying a fine campaign for his Catalan club, scoring 14 times in 23 appearances in all competitions.
Stuani has claimed that the Spanish champions wanted to acquire him last month, but the 32-year-old ultimately penned a new contract with the club that he joined from Middlesbrough in July 2017.
"There was interest from Barcelona [in January]," Stuani told RAC1. "It was a proud moment for me, to have a club like Barcelona interested in signing me, but I'm also very happy about penning a new deal at Girona."
Stuani's overall record for Girona stands at an impressive 35 goals in 56 appearances in all competitions.
