Real Betis defender Emerson admits Barcelona move likely

Real Betis defender Emerson Royal admits a move to Barcelona this summer is likely.

The Brazilian has done well since he's been with Real Betis, but Barcelona are now expected to buy 80 percent of his rights to take him away from Andalusia and to the Camp Nou.

"I have a contract with Barcelona and I want to fulfil it," Emerson said at a press conference, having replaced Dani Alves in the Brazil squad. "I'm happy to have so much recognition.

"As of July 1, my Betis contract ends and I have three years at Barcelona. I'm happy. It's a club I've dreamt of playing for since I started playing football and every footballer wants to play for Barcelona.

"I'll continue to do my job for the national team and then try to establish myself at Barcelona."
