Roma star Lamela: I could've signed for Barcelona

AS Roma winger Erik Lamela admits he came close to joining Barcelona when playing in Argentina.

Lamela is impressing for Roma this season.

"I was close to joining Barcelona, but I don't regret that, as I don't know what would've happened there," 'Coco' Lamela told ESPN Radio.

"If I am to play for Argentina, then it's up to me, as I must continue performing well to get an opportunity.

"Fortunately things are going well for me. The key is to train consistently and put yourself on show with a great club side."
