Real Madrid ace Callejon could've been Barcelona star

Real Madrid star Jose Callejon could be playing for Barcelona - it has been revealed.

Jose Callejon and twin brother Juanmi came through the system at Real before leaving two years ago. Jose was re-signed from Espanyol last summer.

However, former Real scout Sixto Alonso revealed to Cadena COPE that both players were due to join Barcelona when juniors.

It was Barca which made the first move, but amazingly Real intervened while the family were driving to Barcelona from Granada and convinced their father to have the twins sign with them.
