On his future, the former Atlético Madrid, River Plate and FC Porto striker, who is presently on loan at Premier League champions Chelsea from French club AS Monaco, said: “I don’t know. I am not thinking about next season. When the season is finished I start to think about that but I don’t know, we have four more games left. I would like to play more minutes.”
“The experience in [England] has been a little bit tough. It has not been easy because I couldn’t playconstantly like I wanted to. “I will still fight for an opportunity to play and I am waiting for that.
