Kevin-Prince Boateng dubbed his move to Barcelona as a “dream” after the midfielder’s shock loan switch was completed on Monday.
Boateng, 31, joined the Catalan side on loan from Serie A side Sassuolo for the rest of the season, with an €8million purchase option included.
The former AC Milan and Las Palmas midfielder said it was a dream to get an opportunity to play for Barca.

“I’m very happy. It’s a big honour to be here and have the possibility to play for this great club,” Boateng told Barca TV and cited on FourFourTwo.
“For every kid who starts to play football I think it is a dream to play for a club like Barcelona, so for every player and especially for me it’s a big dream come true.”
Boateng only arrived at Sassuolo from Eintracht Frankfurt in July last year, making 15 appearances for the club.
