Balanta is being linked with a January move to Barca.
He told Sport: "As far as I know, there hasn't been a Colombian playing for Barcelona. I would be the first one in the history of the club.
"If it's true, I would be very proud. If it's not, I will try to keep doing things like I have done up until now.
"I have played a few games in the first division and I have to keep going this way - working hard, doing things correctly with effort and sacrifice, in the same way as all of my team-mates."
