Atletico Mineiro fullback Emerson excited about long-term Barcelona future

Atletico Mineiro fullback Emerson is excited about his complicated move to Spain this summer.

Emerson will join Real Betis with the option to eventually move to Barcelona.

He said, "I'm very happy with this transfer.

"It was a child's dream. I'm very grateful to Atlético Mineiro for the opportunity they offered me to show my work and also to the national team, playing with (Lionel) Messi, I already think about it and I think it's something unreal.

"Messi is an excellent player, one of the best in the world I will enjoy a great opportunity."
