The Frenchman has been linked with several clubs, including Manchester City, in recent months.
“I would like to [finish my playing days with Barca],” he told La Vanguardia. “I always say that and at times I think people do not listen to me.
“You know, I love this city. We are in February and it is sunny. However hard it was last year, the people in the street were always encouraging me.
“I enjoy the life here and the food is great too.”
“What I believe is this; Catalunya is not Spain, it is something else and you have to feel it,” he continued.
“Barca is another story. When you come here from Arsenal and there are so many people it is very surprising.”
