The Argentine is in his first season in Italy.
"I am a traditional Argentine number five," he told Clarin. "I like to try and get the ball moving, always trying to use it intelligently.
"That's what I've been taught since I was very small.
"My point of reference as a kid was Fernando Redondo - I always tried to replicate what he did on the pitch.
"Today however, I really admire Sergio Busquets and Andrea Pirlo - Pirlo is a playmaker who has moved into a deeper position, whereas Busquets has the sort of quality very few possess."
