[Kevin Gameiro tells he turned down the chance to join Barcelona, instead opting for a move to UEFA Champions League runners up Atletico Madrid] I knew that if I went to Barça, I would have found myself as the fourth attacker. My game time would have reduced I think. In fact there was more chance of me staying at Sevilla than going to Barcelona. My agents made me aware of more attractive offers on a financial level but I wanted to stay in Spain. I feel very good here and my family does too

[Kevin Gameiro speaks about his team-mate Antoine Griezmann’s potential] I can’t say that because I played with Zlatan Ibrahimovic, David Beckham … great players at PSG. But Antoine is a great player and I think he can go even higher and I hope for him that he’ll do it. For me, it’s a pleasure to play with him. We have fun on the pitch, and you can see it every weekend

[Valencia complete €16m signing of Gameiro from Atletico Madrid] Perhaps. I have a little time left to get there [in terms of fitness]. I have a week to be here and prepare for the game. It was not easy, but as the president has said, it has long been clear in my head [that he wanted to join Valencia]. Now I’m here and I’m very happy

A long time ago I wanted to come here, but because of club problems it couldn’t be. Then there was no option and I went somewhere else. The coach [Marcelino Garcia Toral] told me that he wanted to work with me for a long time. When the coach tells you that, it gives you a lot of confidence to come. I will work hard to try to do many great things here
