Andre Trindade prefers Barcelona over Real Madrid

Brazilian midfielder Andre Trindade has reportedly been linked with a move away from Fluminense in recent months.

Spanish publication Sport has shared comments by Andre Trindade, who would prefer to join Barcelona over Real Madrid if given the opportunity. He has been linked with Premier League giants Liverpool as well.

He said, “I am focused on finishing the season with Fluminense and making our dream come true.” to win the Club World Cup. But my dream is clear: to be a Premier League player.” When asked about joining the two Spanish giants, he said, ” Barça or Madrid? They are two great clubs, but I would choose Barça.”

The 22-year-old is highly rated around Europe, and he could be a key player for all three clubs. Liverpool have been linked with a move for Andre for several months. They tried to sign him in the summer transfer window as well, but Fluminense were not keen on letting him leave back then. They wanted to hold on to the player so that they could win the Copa Libertadores and the Club World Cup.

Andre has already helped the Brazilian club win Copa Libertadores, and he will be allowed to leave in January.  Fluminense have reached the final of the FIFA Club World Cup as well.

The 22-year-old defensive midfielder could be the ideal acquisition for a club like Liverpool, who require a defensive midfielder. He will add defensive steel and tactical stability to the side. Meanwhile, Barcelona need to bring in a quality long-term replacement for Sergio Busquets, and the 22-year-old certainly fits the profile.

However, the Catalan giants are going through financial difficulties, and they might find it hard to get the deal done. As far as Real Madrid are concerned, they have enough quality and depth in the central midfield. However, they are putting together a squad for the future, and Andre has all the tools to develop into a quality midfielder in the future.

The Brazilian would be a superb long-term addition for all three clubs, and he could improve them immensely. It will be interesting to see where he ends up eventually. He needs to join a club where he will get ample first-team action so that he can continue his development with regular football.
