The Icelandic star Aron Pálmarsson confirms interest from FC Barcelona.
Today the 26-year-old Icelandic national player confirms to the Icelandic newspaper mbl.is, that the Catalans show interest. According to the Icelandic newspaper, Palmarsson has received a contract offer from the Spanish giants Barcelona. Furthermore, THW Kiel in Germany and Paris Saint-Germain in France are allegedly also ready with a contract offer.
"I think I said in my first interview when I was 15 years old, that my dream club was Barcelona. Of course it is very exciting and I always wanted to play there. So I'm flattered that they show interest in me," said Aron Palmarsson to Morgunbladid yesterday.
"I'm just wondering what I should do. I will give me a good time to consider where I will play in the coming years. This is probably the biggest decision I have taken," said the Icelandic playmaker, who is under contract in Veszprém until the summer of 2018. And the Hungarians are also interested in extending the contract.
