It has been some wait, but now he’s here. Alexis Sánchez, the first Barça signing of the 2010/11 season has had a look at his new stadium after arriving in the Catalan capital on Sunday. He went straight to be pictured outside the Camp Nou offices and spoke to Barça TV and “Me and my family thought Barça would be a good club for winning titles and being happy. It has been my dream since I was a child”, he said.
