Chelsea midfielder Oriol Romeu admits he would find a return to the Nou Camp this summer hard to resist.
Following reports that Barcelona were considering the option of activating a buy-back clause in his contract, the player has confessed he would be keen to make a return to la Liga.
“If [Barcelona coach] Tito Vilanova wants me there, I would talk to him and discuss it with him. If they want me to enjoy my football and show some confidence in me, then onwards and upwards,” he told Catalan paper Sport.
“Returning to Barcelona is an option but it depends on many things, because I want to play. I've always felt like a big Barcelona supporter, I am very grateful to FC Barcelona and it's thanks to them that I am where I am.
“I wanted to play more and Chelsea showed confidence in me, but if FC Barcelona want you to play, well....”
The midfielder also admitted he would be willing to play as a central defender, the position he played as a youngster, should it facilitate his return to the Nou Camp.
“It's been a long time since I played as a central defender but it's all the same for me to play in that position as in midfield. What I want is to play and I'm willing to play in whatever position."
Romeu confirmed that Barcelona have the option to buy him back, and emphasised that he never felt they were trying to offload him by letting him move to Chelsea.
“They have the option to buy me back, I left knowing I had that option, and if they still have confidence in me, as they showed by leaving the option open, then they should let me know."
