Emerson Royal has admitted that he has not been distracted by the recent media speculation regarding his future and has clear ideas about his future.
The Brazilian full back is currently in the midst of a two year loan deal at Real Betis from Barcelona and in recent weeks he has been strongly linked with a move to Inter as part of a deal that would send Inter striker Lautaro Martinez to the Nou Camp.
“My idea is clear. In 2021 I can move to Barcelona, but until then my head will be here at Betis, First of all, my intention is to end this season, only afterwards will I think about the future,” he remarked in an interview with Spanish radio station Radio Marca earlier on today.
He went on to add, “I know there are many rumours about me, but I have a contract with Betis and I am happy here.”
The 21-year-old Brazil under 23 national team player, who has a contract with Barcelona through to the end of the 2023/24 season, has made 24 appearances across all competitions to date this term.
In his time on the park, the former Atletico Mineiro defender has scored three goals and has provided a total of five assists for his teammates.
