Michael Ballack revealed one of the biggest secrets in his professional career. The German star said during an interview posted by “AS” magazine that he was about to join FC Barcelona in 2004.

He said: “Yes, I had an agreement with FC Barcelona in 2004 but Bayern Munchen didn’t accept to let me go. In that period, refusing to play wasn’t a good option. In football, you always want to win but there are always boundaries that should be respected”. 

Ballack also spoke about James Rodriguez move to Bayern: “I think that he will perform well with the squad especially that he knows the coach very well. This season will be tough for Ancelotti, people want to see a beautiful football in Bayern”.
