Osasuna striker, Chimy Avila, spoke with 'Ole' about his good performances and, after the news of Luis Suarez's injury, about a possible move to Barcelona, where praised fellow Spaniard, Leo Messi.

He had already had a good season with Huesca in 2018/19, but the current season is confirmation of Chimy Avila's place in Spanish football.

The Argentine is amongst the top scorers in the table and chatted with 'Ole', his country's media, about his in-form performances.

The former Huesca man was asked if he was capable of fighting for the 'Pichichi' with Messi and his response could not be more blunt: "It's impossible to reach that monster, he's from another planet! I am happy to be there, fighting at the top. I think that it's compensation for the work and the sacrifice, but also thank you to my teammates".

After these declarations, Barcelona found out about Luis Suarez's long-term injury and Chimy Avila entered the list of possible candidates to replace the Uruguayan, but he himself has always been in favour of finishing the season with Osasuna.

"I have four years left on my contract and my head is in the sand. I am trying to enjoy it and not think so much about the future so that I don't lose concentration," he said. Of course, if Barca called, he could not say no.
