The 24-year old told Marca: “I admit it’s a very big fee but I have personality

“I have only played two pre-season games, 15 official minutes and a failed penalty – and they’re already killing me, so I know what’s ahead.
“It is the price that must be paid for such a large transfer. And it’s something that motivates me and makes me work harder every day.
“I know now twice as many people look at me.”
