Former PSG manager Mauricio Pochettino had his share of questions answered regarding the 23-year-old’s future. In an in-depth interview with Spanish media Reportthe Argentine talked about the behind-the-scenes details of the whole saga.

“He never asked me for advice,” Pochettino said. “He has a lot of people around him, plus all those who advise him without him asking. We had a lot of discussions, he was the player who was most present in my office, day after day.

“We talked about his life, the things he likes and the things he doesn’t like. He is a boy who likes to talk a lot about football; he watches a lot of games. Sometimes he would watch the Portuguese league at home and he would send me a picture of the moment. It is very easy to identify with him.
