“What is almost confirmed is that we are going to live in Barcelona again and that our life will be there,” he told Spanish outlet Sport in quotes published by reuters.com.

“It’s what my wife wants and what I want. I don’t know when my contract with PSG ends but we’ll go back to Barcelona to live.

“I always said that I would love to be able to help the club. I would love to be a technical director at some point. I don’t know if it will be at Barcelona or not.

“If there is a possibility, I would like to contribute again because it’s the club that I love and I would love for it to continue doing well, to continue growing and to continue being one of the best in the world.”

The 34-year-old really wants to return as a sporting director of the club, clearing that he and and his family are going to live in Barcelona. This isn’t surprising at all as everyone was expecting him to be like this.
