The Camp Nou outfit surprised many when they confirmed the signing of the 31-year-old attacker on a six-month loan deal from Serie A side Sassuolo.
 
The former AC Milan, Borussia Dortmund and Tottenham Hotspur star has since admitted that while he is excited at having completed a dream move to the Blaugrana, he is aware of the situation regarding his potential playing time.
 
"This is a test and I know I haven't arrived as a starter, but I want to play well and stay for many years, that's my goal," he said at his unveiling, as quoted by Marca. 
 
"At almost 32 years old, the role of a No. 9 is perfect for me. It's important to have a player like me in the team because I have other attributes.
 
"It's an incredible feeling to be here. Yesterday I was sad because I was happy in Sassuolo, but this was a great opportunity and I couldn't say no. 
 
"I wanted to come to Barcelona, as soon as I heard of their interest I spoke to my agent."
 
 
Boateng, who netted four goals in 13 Serie A appearances for Sassuolo, could be set to make his Barcelona debut on Wednesday night after being drafted into the Spanish giants' travelling team to face Sevilla in the first leg of their Copa del Rey encounter.
 
Do you think Boateng will prove a success at Barcelona? Let us know in the comments section below.
