This was back when we wanted to sign him before he signed new contract with Barca.And his father played us.

“With Barca, the negotiations [over his first professional contract] did not advance,” Kourouma told Diario Sport.

“We met with Txiki Begiristain [Manchester City sporting director] and he explained his entire project to us.
“We liked it because they bet a lot on him. A few weeks later we had the tickets to travel to Manchester and sign the contract.

“I canceled it the morning that we had to go there. I wanted Ilaix to be an example and a reference for the next generations of Barca.

“His friends were gone. If he stayed, it was proof that Barca was betting on the youth players. We managed to reach an agreement where we all came out winning.”

Linked again today. The wage demands look rubbish though. Wonder if we really might try again. He looks a really really good player.
