An FC Barcelona star has admitted that money did play a factor in his decision to reject a move to the Premier League.
Ronald Araujo committed his long-term future to the club this week after putting pen-to-paper on a four year amid interest from the Premier League.
The Uruguayan defender admitted that money issue did factor into his decision making, but insists he is at the Camp Nou to challenge for major honours.
"I am really happy and I am convinced that staying is the right decision because there are good years ahead for the club," the Uruguayan told ESPN.
"I was always certain I wanted to stay. There were big offers from abroad, but I'm happy at Barcelona. My family love it here and the fans and my teammates have always made me feel at home.
"I'm grateful for the effort the club have made. We all gave a little bit to reach an agreement, which is what we all wanted.
"[The Premier League interest] didn't distract me at all. I was convinced what I wanted. It's true money is a factor, but for me it's not the most important thing. I am happy at Barcelona."
