If it is an empty season will have a lot of repercussions".

I am a player of 28 years at the end of the agreement, free, international in the team number one of the world, can not be a bad business neither a bad purchase. In terms of investment, there is not a lot that lose, even if have gangrene, if they cut me the leg, does not lose a lot of money... But my aim is to remain me in Paris, all know it. We will see", it has commented, without giving too many tracks on his intentions.
