“What is the situation? I don’t know. I’m still playing. At the moment, I haven’t had any offers. I don’t know if the club wants to sell me. I just have to wait. I’m going away with the national team (on Thursday) and I can’t say any more than that. We don’t have any games so we will be training for a week in Barcelona. If the club want to sell me, what can I do? I just have to wait and see what will happen. But I want to be playing. I am trying to do my best here. If the club have some offers for me, they will let me know. At the moment I have no idea. I need to be playing and I want to be playing but I believe that I am doing well. The manager will choose who plays. I have a contract here and if I don’t get anything good for me or for the club, then I will stay.”
