The 24-year-old recently agreed to a five-year contract extension with the Catalan giants, but admitted he spoke to other clubs.

"I don't see myself away from Barca. It's not something I've pictured yet," he said, as quoted by FourFourTwo.

"I feel like an important part of the team and hopefully I can help them more and more.

"I cannot confirm that (the offer from PSG) because I don't like talking about figures. I've already said that, yes, I was in talks with many different teams and I chose to stay here, where I feel at home.

"As I said, I belong to Barca and I'm really happy here."

The Brazilian also explained which moment made him realise that he had made it as a football star.

"I think it was when I had made so much money from football that I was able to buy a house for my family," he added.

"That's when it really sank in. It was a really nice feeling."
