The 33-year-old has been part of La Blaugrana’s first team squad since 2002, becoming one of the most successful players in the history of football, working under the likes of Frank Rijkaard, Pep Guardiola and Luis Enrique.

He will join Chinese Super League side Chongqing Lifan, who are currently managed by former Sporting CP and Cruzeiro coach Paulo Bento.
