Marseille midfielder Maxime López: How I blew Barcelona move...

Olympique Marseille midfielder Maxime López has revealed an approach from Barcelona.

Lopez admits Barca were in contact two years ago.

"In the summer of 2017, the sports director of Barça ( Robert Fernández) spoke with my agent, who said there was interest in the next season if I had a good campaign," he recalled.

"Everyone knows that I love Barça, I have imagined too many things.

"In my head I thought: that's it, I'm there. And that's when I lost six months, I was lost, I no longer recognized myself."
