Ghana international Kevin-Prince Boateng has set the bar high for what will potentially be his first El Clásico against Real Madrid later this season.

The 31-yer-old completed a surprise move to Barcelona last night, joining the Catalan club on-loan from Italian Serie A club Sassuolo for the rest of the season. The Spanish LaLiga leaders have an option to buy the utility player at the end of the campaign.

Barcelona next face their great rivals at the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium in early March.

"Barça, I’m coming! I'm sad to leave Sassuolo but this is a great chance," Boateng told journalists before leaving Italy.

"But don't ask me about Real Madrid. I only want to focus on Barcelona and I hope to score at Bernabéu for the next Clásico," he added having reportedly claimed in the past that he would rather sign for Los Blancos than Barca if the opportunity ever presented itself.

Boateng has yet to taste victory in five games against Real Madrid over the years, for AC Milan, FC Schalke and Las Palmas respectively - losing three and drawing two.

The former Tottenham Hotspur's man scored one and assisted another in has last appearance against the European champions.
