Nevertheless the Spanish international has also admitted about how he is broadening his boundaries by learning English. He is hopeful it could serve him well if a move to England happens in the future.

Friends from Arsenal ask me about them and think they can make the jump to the Premier League tomorrow”.

It’s good that great teams are having an interest in young players in Villereal. But, for the moment I tell them to leave them alone here.
