“I do not know what will happen in my future,” the Brazilian told Catalan-based publication Mundo Deportivo.

“Through some friends and the Press I know that Barcelona are interested in me, but for now there is no concrete offer.

“I leave these questions to my agent, but at this time my only thought is to return Milan to being champions of Italy again.

“The Catalan team are the best in the world, even if they are not going through the happiest of times right now. Every player dreams of playing at a big club like Barcelona.

“I am only focused on Milan. They are a company that allowed me to fulfil my dream, namely to play in a great team.”
