“I don’t have something clear. In a few more weeks I will have to finish my contract with Betis and I want everything to end well. I have not wanted to see or hear proposals for later because I want to finish this stage here in the best way. If I get an offer that generates good feelings and fills me with enthusiasm, logically I will extend my career. But, If nothing arrives or something appears that does not generate anything for me or the expectations do not meet what I am used to, the cycle is cut off.”, he declared to Channel 13.
