Barcelona move a 'dream come true' for Boateng

After his loan move to Barcelona was confirmed, Kevin-Prince Boateng said it was a dream come true.

Kevin-Prince Boateng described his move to Barcelona as a "dream" after the midfielder's shock loan switch was confirmed on Monday.

Boateng, 31, joined the LaLiga giants on loan from Serie A side Sassuolo for the rest of the season, with an €8million purchase option included.

The former AC Milan and Tottenham 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.

"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.
