After plying his trade in the Spanish Primera Division and England’s Premier League throughout his career, the Spain international elected to move to with the Viola despite interest from a variety of clubs, including Atletico Madrid and Tottenham Hotspur.

“That’s because, as well as the financial aspect of the deal, I was joining a club who would allow me to express myself.

“I feel happy in Florence and the team is ideal for my characteristics – and I think I can still improve as a player.
