Atletico Madris forward Kevin Gameiro has revealed that he turned down the chance to join Barcelona because of their forward trio of Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez. The France International was a target for the Catalan side before they signed Spanish forward Paco Alcacer.
"I had the choice between going to Barca or coming to Atletico. But what am I going to do at Barca? There's Neymar, [Lionel] Messi and [Luis] Suarez. There are players like that who want to play every match, who refuse to come off for even ten minutes at the end. That's what happened with Ibra." the striker told Le10 Sport.
