Toronto FC striker Giovinco 'happy' with Barcelona interest

Toronto FC striker Sebastian Giovinco is "happy" with the interest of Barcelona.

Giovinco's agent has admitted contact with Barca in recent weeks.

The former Juventus striker told Calciomercato.it: “I owe so much to Toronto because they allowed me to win this award and I will do everything to win it again both personally and with the team.

“Payback? I'm glad I made this choice and that's the most important thing.

"I didn't think about the criticism, I have always tried to enjoy myself. Sometimes I succeeded, but other times not, but I'm looking ahead on my path.

"Messi is the best in the world, I knew nothing of an offer. The interest makes me very, very happy.

“Next year? I don't know, now I've finished this one, we'll see about the next."
