EDIT: no need to complain about the wrong name in the thread title. I already PMed Flavia, so she will correct it eventually.
Asensio's been a star for Spain U19 in the Euro.
Could have come to Barca. He was desperate to come here, but we didn't want to pay the 3m I think Mallorca wanted.
Paid more for
We thought it is too much with Adama playing the position ,might turn to be big mistake
Adama AND Halilovic. Plus Deulofeu on loan and Rafinha. We had (and still have) enough talented wingers and it will be difficult to get through Messi and Neymar to first team anyway. We need midfielders, not wingers. We can't have everyone.
Not sure what Rafinha and Halilovic had to do with him considering both are midfielders actually
We almost had a deal with him ,so we actually wanted him but we were half milion apart in negotiation and then Zubi decided he isn't worth it because of Adama. understandable at that time b/c Adama hype was at its peak back then
So while I totally agree we can't have everyone ,this is a guy we wanted and backing from the deal might prove us wrong .but that is too early to tell for now
