FC Barcelona's recent signing, Kevin-Prince Boateng, is looking forward to Wednesday's Copa del Rey clash against Real Madrid and has three names he thinks will be the greatest threats in the match.

He arrived at the Nou Camp on loan from Sassuolo during the winter transfer window. He was brought in by the Catalans to boost the depth of the squad's forward line, obviously as a backup to Luis Suarez.

Talking about his new Catalan adventure to the newspaper La Vanguardia as per Calcio Mercato, Boateng said: "I changed a lot of teams and at the end of my career here's the chance to play in this team. It is the most exciting thing for a footballer."

The 31-year-old striker has featured in just one game for the Blaugrana so far, in the first leg of the Copa del Rey quarterfinals which ended in a 2-0 defeat. Despite the defeat and minimal playing time, the forward claims he is enjoying being part of one of the biggest teams in the world.

"I will be 32 years old in March, for me it was unthinkable, I repeat. At this age, it's a dream. How did my children react? Jermaine is 10 years old and has understood it. Maddox is amazed that I will play with Messi."

There is no doubt that Barcelona versus Real Madrid, the Clasico, is one of the biggest games in world football and the striker thinks they've got the quality it takes to win. "About tomorrow's Clasico, Real are strong and (Karim) Benzema is scoring in every match, Vinicius Jr is a great talent and (Luka) Modric is a phenomenon. But we have a stronger team and we are ready to win the game."

The upcoming Copa del Rey semi-final clash between Real Madrid and Barcelona will be the 35th and 36th fixture between the two in the competition, with both sides winning 10 times each in the past, as stated by Marca.

It still remains to be seen how much Kevin Prince-Boateng helps Barcelona as the season progresses but the 31-year-old goal-scorer looks confident to make his mark.
