Nigerian teen full back Nura Abdullahi has claimed that he is aware that Barcelona made moves to sign him last season
Nura won the hearts of the technical men of the Spanish side after dazzling in a UEFA Youth League tie for the Primavera side of Roma, and Barcelona immediately set the wheel in motion towards signing him.
‘If I say am not aware then am not saying the truth. The news was everywhere and I was sounded out by my representatives about the possibility of the deal happening, it didn’t work and am happy at Roma,” said.
‘I want to justify the faith Roma has in me, the coach has so far been a father figure to me, I want to repay him by helping the team do well this season, Barcelona and their interest is well behind me now.’ He added
