One Atletico Madrid star has made a bold statement over his future at the club amid summer links with Manchester United.
Mundo Deportivo claiming that Barcelona could re-sign the player should he decide that he wants to move on from Atletico in the near future.
The Spain international – who netted against England in their UEFA Nations League win at Wembley – told Radio Nacional Espana of his desire to retire with the Rojiblancos.
“That’s why I signed a long-term contract,” the 23-year-old stated.
“That’s my intention, to be at Atletico Madrid all my life, but in the world of football you never know.
“For me, yes [I want to retire at Atletico], but maybe I have a bad couple of years and then they grow to not love me anymore.”
