His elegance and technical quality are his big qualities, in addition to the capacity to visit a lot of kilometres with the balloon controlled and break lines with his vision of game.

When it burst into in the first team of the Ajax and began to accumulate big performances, was when from the FC Barcelona bet definitively for going to by his signing, before they did it other big clubs. Ready it was the Barça to lose him, because of the insistence of teams like Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain.
