"The next day I saw news on the Internet. One guy sent it to me from Ghana I and opened it and I read Gideon might go the Barcelona B and trained with the first and I called this agent and asked ‘‘Did you tell anybody about this move?. He was like No and then he called and said the story was also circulating in the Spanish press because there was one scout from Barcelona who published the news out already.
