Emerson de Souza is thinking about doing his full time with Real Betis before coming to Barcelona. "Many people say I was bought by Barcelona and loaned to Betis, but no, I was bought by Betis too," he told ESPN.
He's having a good season, a regular starter for Rubi's side with five assists and three goals.
"They are two and a half years here and two and a half years at Barca," added Emerson. "Betis is a fantastic club, I love it a lot and consider it my home. I'm adapting to La Liga here, to later play at Barca. I'm a Betis player until May 2021. If there had been a deal with Barca it would be inevitable to go, but I'm not thinking about going early. I'm thinking about doing my job and focusing on playing here."
