As reported by the site Ole, the French club had contact in the past with Carrillo but it wasn’t until now that they came forward with an agreement for his transfer.
“What attracted me to the club was that they are an important club. Also the my friends who have been at the club such as Trezeguet, Saviola, Gallardo and Bernardi have all performed very well and told me good things” he said.
He went on to add that he thought that the club was important not only at country level but also at European level.
