“His father was in Spain, we met his father in Spain - we were talking about him. So we share a lot of information.
“It's fine. It's just a question about where he is from - The Basque country.
“It is always an attention for Real Sociedad and Bilbao because they do not have too many players, especially players of his level. So you cannot stop that."
