Kevin-Prince Boateng’s career has been a roller-coaster. He’s one of the most talented, yet controversial players of the past decade, and the kind of baller we all thought was going to take a step forward in his career, but never truly did.
Nonetheless, better late than ever, as the Ghana international has been announced as FC Barcelona’s newest reinforcement in one of the most surprising moves of the transfer window.
Barcelona was looking for a guy that could take some pressure off of Luis Suarez’ shoulders, considering the Uruguayan was their last man standing in the box after they let Munir go away to Sevilla.
The veteran will leave Sassuolo to join the Blaugrana on a 6-month loan, but the Catalans hold the right to acquire his services for good on an 8 million fee at the end of the season.
As for El Clasico, it looks like the 31-year old will fit in right away, as he already told Sky Sports that he’s eager to score against Real Madrid the next time both teams face each other next month.
