Sergio celebrates his 33rd birthday and said in a news conference, “Barcelona is the best team in the world,”
“And we all know it.
“It was a good decision to join and help the team achieve things. It’s another step and I’m very happy. I hope I can contribute a lot to the club.
“The first thing is to try and play and help the team as much as I can. We are a team, and I will try my best. Hopefully, we can get to the end of the season and be in contention for the important trophies.”
Barca told that the Argentine will sign a two-year contract with a 100 million euro ($122.04 million) buy-out clause.
Sergio is expected to be the first of several arrivals at ‘Camp Nou’ this summer as new president ‘Joan Laporta’ looks to revamp a squad that could only finish third in ‘La Liga’.
Sergio teammate ‘Eric Garcia’ has been heavily linked as a transfer, as have Dutch duo Memphis Depay and Georginio Wijnaldum.
