Having won almost every other trophy on offer in football, the Champions League is now his priority – and one that he is desperate not to let get away before the end of his career.
“The Champions League is the competition I still need to win,’ he said. ‘It would give me enormous satisfaction,” the Spaniard was quoted by the Daily Mail.
“I’ve played in a Champions League final, four semi-finals. You are there, you practically touch it, you get so close… I hope I can experience that moment one day.”
The 27-year-old will return to Paris almost nine-years on from the final heartbreak under Arsene Wenger – with the Blues to face Paris Saint-Germain in the last 16 of the competition.
