Nico Gonzalez has recently been in the news due to his uncertain future at Barcelona following the arrival of a slew of star players, including Franck Kessie. However, in a recent interview with MARCA, the academy graduate dispelled those rumors and stated that he is looking forward to the upcoming season. Nico also confirms that he will stay at Barça and compete for a spot in the first team. “The idea this year is the same as it has been in the past, in that I only played two games with Barça B and was in the dynamic of the first team.” “The plan is to fight for every possible match,” Nico told MARCA. The youngster played in 27 league games last season, but he admits that getting regular game time at Barça next season will be even more difficult. At the same time, the youngster praised the Barcelona board for bringing in a slew of top-tier players in an effort to help the club reclaim its former glory in the coming years. “The squad is rapidly improving. We’ve taken a huge step up in quality with the signings. I’m confident it will result in titles and a better season than last year.” Finally, Nico was questioned about playing alongside new signing Robert Lewandowski. The midfielder admitted that he is a huge fan of the Polish international and has enjoyed watching some of his career highlights, such as his four goals against Real Madrid in the 2013 Champions League semi-final. “It’s fun to play with him. I’ve seen him play many games, one of which he scored four goals against Real Madrid. I had a lot of fun with it.” Speaking of Real Madrid, Nico expresses excitement for the upcoming pre-season El Clasico later this week, in which he is expected to play a key role. “You always want to play, and it’s a big extra motivation for me to play two games against them, and it’s spectacular when we play against Real Madrid,” the midfielder added.
