Cristhian Stuani: ‘Barcelona? A lot of teams want me’

Girona striker and reported Barcelona target Cristhian Stuani admits he is likely to leave following their relegation: “A lot of clubs want me.”

The Uruguayan striker netted 19 goals in La Liga last season – only four players score more – following on from his 21 strikes in his debut season in Spain’s top flight.

“I have not spoken to Girona nor we have sat down to negotiate, so I do not know what idea they have,” Stuani is cited as saying by Marca.

“My priority is with the national team, I've scored a lot of goals and that's striking, there are clubs that love me and that's a big compliment.

“It's a difficult moment for me. Here has been a very nice project and I have bet to be there for many years. The relegation was not planned and the aim for the club has to be to rise again.”

Stuani's recently penned a new deal which takes him through until 2022 with the Catalan club with a reported market value of €20m.
