Jordi Alba excited about Barcelona move: Best team in world

New Barcelona signing Jordi Alba is thrilled with his return to the Nou Camp.

The former Valencia fullback, fresh from winning the Euros with Spain, will undergo a Barca medical today.

"I'm excited that I'll be playing in the best team in the world, with the best players and the best fans. It's a big challenge for me but I'll try to do my best. It's a great opportunity, I have to improve my game a lot and this is a great club to do it in," he told the club's website.

"I'm very pleased, it's been an incredible month for me and now I have to take advantage of the opportunity that FC Barcelona has given me. I'm coming home, with my family and my people, that's why I'm so content."
