And now after five seasons in the Premier League, he is expected to return to his homeland - but the move is expected to be delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

He told Cadena Ser: "I'm terminating my contract, but right now it's not the most important thing, nor have I stopped to think about it.

"From there on what has to do with my future will come, but right now it’s not the most important thing when you don’t even know when you’re going to train again."

With Spain and the United Kingdom in a state of lockdown to reduce the spread of coronavirus, the 2010 FIFA World Cup winner admits he's confided in his former teammates as he's split from his family.

"[I've talked with] Jordi [Alba], with someone else… and the same, living this situation with much chaos, with uncertainty.

"The confinement, which is also complicated, a little difficult and hard on everything. I have not been able to travel either and see my children.

"I had a chance to be with them, and I could not travel."
