According to, Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has also shown interest in the Spain international but it is now left to be seen which of the two clubs he has in mind to announce.

The midfielder's cryptic post on social media has now driven engagement among the supporters and some are hoping he meant another thing entirely.

About two years, Antoine Griezmann pulled a similar stunt after releasing a 30 minutes documentary on whether to stay or join Barcelona.

The broadcast had no clear vision with one part of the ending claimed the Frenchman would stay, while the other said he would go as reported by Sky Sport.

But he ended up staying at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium for another one year until he finally joined the Catalans.
