The 25-year-old, who joined the Swans from Genoa for just £2 million and has only two years left on his current contract at the Liberty stadium, was bought to Barcelona B from Cadiz by Pep Guardiola, who will take over as Bayern coach next season.
And, the man who has formed a rock-solid partnership at the heart of the club’s defence alongside Swansea captain Ashley Williams, has already spoken of his admiration for the one-time Barca head coach.
“Pep is very close to the players. He was and is a great but he is very modest, he behaves as one of us. It went well for me. Pep wanted to take me to the first team but Cadiz wanted too much money. That was it,” said Flores.
“I still have a book that Pep gave me. It’s called Learning to Lose. He helped all the players there so much.
“When you have the playing career he had, it creates so much respect. It is a very similar thing with (Michael) Laudrup (the Swansea manager).”
