He helped guide the side to an FA Cup victory before moving back to Barcelona. During his spell at the Nou Camp, he gelled into the side and often utilised his exquisite passing to find the likes of Lionel Messi up top. His performances led to a La Liga and Club World Cup victory.

After his time in his homeland came to an end, he moved to Chelsea before ultimately making a move to Monaco. But after making just six appearances last season, it looked like his journey had come to an end. However, it looks like he’s secured an incredible deal.
