“I don’t think I will end up at Real Madrid”


Nico Gonzalez, who joined Valencia on loan from Barcelona this summer, said he would not join his big rivals real Madridstating that he has always been a Barca fan.

Gonzalez was part of Barcelona’s pre-season squad and had a good run as the Blaugrana took on Real Madrid and Juventus, among other things, in friendly matches in the United States. He signed a contract extension with the Catalans in August, committing his long-term future to the club (June 2026), before joining Valencia on loan.

Gonzalez, who has settled in well at the Mestalla stadium, was recently asked whether or not he would consider joining Real Madrid. The young midfielder reiterated his love for Barca, adding that he doesn’t see himself moving to Madrid. On the show “El Larguero,” Gonzalez said (via Mark):

“Real Madrid? No, I’ve been a Barca fan since I was little. I’m very happy at Valencia, I was very happy at Barca and I don’t think I’ll end up in Madrid.

Before joining Valencia on loan, he played 37 games for Barcelona in all competitions, registering two goals and two assists.

Barcelona coach Xavi helped Nico Gonzalez secure a loan move this summer

Gonzalez was apparently unhappy with his playing time at Barca and asked his coach Xavi to sanction his departure. The former central midfielder apparently obliged and helped seal a move to Valencia.

In an old interview with Cadena SER, Gonzales revealed (via the aforementioned source):

“I asked Xavi Hernández to go on loan and he understood. He wished me luck and made it easy for me to go on loan.

Gonzalez believed that although his loan move was sanctioned, he would have gotten a place at Barca if he hadn’t asked to move.

He added:

“I think so, I had a place at Barcelona. There were fewer players in midfield than when I left. But that’s not a decision I made either.

Since joining Valencia earlier this summer, Gonzalez has featured in six La Liga games, finding the back of the net on one occasion.
