Andreas Christensen hopes he is not the only defender to leave Chelsea for Barcelona this close season, with Cesar Azpilicueta and Marcos Alonso both appearing to be targets for the Catalan club.
Christensen was presented as a Barca player on Thursday after departing Stamford Bridge at the end of his contract.
Spain internationals Azpilicueta and Alonso have been linked to the Camp Nou giants, too, and Christensen revealed he had discussed the move with both players.
"I spoke to them and told them I was going to Barca," he said in a news conference. "They are great friends, and hopefully I can play with them.
"I haven't met my team-mates here yet, who have a lot of quality, but I do want to play with [Azpilicueta and Alonso] again next season."

Barca sporting advisor Jordi Cruyff was also asked about the Blues pair and said: "It is true that the change of ownership at Chelsea delays everything a bit.
"We want to reinforce several positions of the team, and we have several names on the table.
"What has struck me the most is that all the players open their eyes when they hear the name of Barca and are willing to lose money to adapt to the salary scale.
"We are proud to see how people are willing to lose money to come to this club. The new wage structure must be fair and stable.
"We don't want to talk about names, because they have a contract with their clubs, but it is true that we are looking to reinforce positions that we consider fundamental."
