Sevilla signing Papu Gomez: I didn't join for money

Sevilla signing Papu Gomez says he didn't leave Atalanta for money.

Gomez signed permanently for Sevilla this week.

“In all honesty, I was never interested in the economic aspect of the proposals," said Gomez in his press conference.

“I received offers from Arab clubs, but I have always just wanted to be happy in football. There's still time for the rest. I think I'm in a very good period of form, at the peak of my career and want to continue playing at the highest level.

“I am an international, now I am challenging myself in a strong league in Spain with an important club like Sevilla. When I had the opportunity to come here, I didn't think twice."
