Boateng revealed this in an interview with Sky Sport on Monday evening.
“Barça, I’m coming! I’m sad to leave Sassuolo but is a great chance.
“Don’t ask me about Real Madrid… is just the past!
“I only want to focus on Barcelona and I hope to score at Bernabéu for the next Clásico,” the player said.
Barcelona and Sassuolo have agreed to a deal ‘in principle’ to loan Boateng for €2million, with an option to buy the player for €8million.
The deal is being wrapped up by Boateng’s agent, Edoardo Crnjar.
