‘A great pleasure’ – Henrique reacts to Barca and PSG transfer talks

Wed 09 June 2021 | 21:27

Monaco left-back Caio Henrique is pleased with the suggestions that Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain want to sign him in this summer’s transfer window.

The 23-year-old defender moved to

Monaco

from La Liga Champions

Atletico Madrid

last summer and impressed during the 2020-21 campaign, making 36 appearances in all competitions for the Ligue 1 side.

He played an integral part in the French outfit's third-place finish in the 2020-21 Ligue 1 standings, attracting the attention of two of Europe's biggest clubs in the process.

A recent report claimed that Barca and PSG were keen to sign the Brazilian in the upcoming market, and Henrique has said that "it is a great pleasure" to be linked with "very important clubs".

"I am very calm with all this,"

Henrique told

Goal

when quizzed on the transfer rumors.

"I try not to get involved and concentrate only on [what happens on the] pitch and I leave it (transfer talk) in the hands of my representatives.

"Of course, it is a great pleasure to hear about these very important clubs, but I have my feet on the ground and I always try to do my best, no matter where I am playing. I am very focused and committed to the jersey that I wear, and that will never change."

Henrique was also asked to name the most difficult man to defend against from PSG's attacking trio of

Kylian Mbappe

,

Neymar

, and

Angel Di Maria

.

"It is difficult to pick one, they are three spectacular players," he added. "Mbappe has his explosiveness and dribbling as a strong point, while Neymar, in addition to his dribbling, has a lot of ability in finding space. Di Maria is also difficult to face. I think that all three in some way create a lot of difficulties."
