- He's overwhelmed: "Many things get in my head and I am a bit blocked. Until today it has not sunk in yet. I have been in the first team for 16 years and to start from scratch is hard for me and my family especially. We will adapt to what comes next. We have to accept it."
- On the possibility of playing for PSG: "It is a possibility, but I have not agreed anything with anyone. I have different clubs who are interested. And nothing is definitive but clearly we are talking to them."
- On playing against Barcelona in the future: "People know me, they know I am competitive, I want to keep winning. My last years I want to fight for titles. Congratulations to Dani Alves, I want more titles than him, I am near and will keep at it."
