Jonathan dos Santos has warned Real Sociedad that they are not the only team in for him, whilst he asserts his Barcelona future is down to Gerardo Martino.
The Mexican has been linked this summer with an exit from the Camp Nou, although whether on loan or through a permanent sale seen as having held up a move to Real Sociedad.
Reflecting on the situation in today’s edition of Sport, the 23-year-old indicated that he is prepared for any eventuality ahead of an expected meeting to determine his future with new Coach Martino.
“We must wait. I will see what [Martino] thinks, but I am calm, training 100 per cent every day and everything else will follow,” Dos Santos commented.
“In football anything can happen. Now I am here with Barca, I am working hard and I cannot say much more.
“It is true that last year I have not played much and that some important teams are now interested in me, but again for now I am here, I’m happy to be here and we shall see what happens in the coming days.
“Real Sociedad? They are a group that have had a great season, they have Carlos Vela, young players, they are in the play-offs for the Champions League, if they don’t get into that then they’ll be in the Europa League, but other teams are also interested in me.
“For now I am with Barca and I am not thinking about anything else.”
Capped a handful of times by his country, the midfielder was asked of his hopes to make next year’s World Cup.
“Of course I am thinking about the World Cup and I need to have minutes to get on to the list. This is important whether with Barcelona or another club.
“It is what I need right now to aspire to be in Brazil.”
