“Unfortunately, really the pandemic did not fully allow me to enjoy Manchester to the fullest extent nor the surroundings as I originally wanted to, but this last year was something really incredible for me.
“At Man City I’ve grown not only as a player but besides that I’ve grown as a person as well. I’m much stronger as I face my new challenges as a professional player. Also knowing that I was really privileged and lucky to represent the shirt of this great club.
“Besides all the great experiences, in winning the Premier League and also the Carabao Cup and of course competing in the final of the Champions League, I take something much more important with me, a really great relationship with you all, the loyal Man City fans.
“I would like to thank Pep Guardiola, Ferran Soriano, [City CEO] Txiki [Begiristain], and [Chief Football Operations Officer] Omar [Berrada] that they gave me this great opportunity to become part of this great team. Personally I feel humble and thankful for the confidence that I was included in this great, world-renowned set-up.
“Above and beyond all that I also want to thank my teammates and all the members of staff at Manchester City.
“I’m now returning to Spain. But I carry you all in my heart forever and I’ll still celebrate your wins together, week in week out.
“For sure I leave a bit of my heart in Manchester at City.”
