He mentioned few times that he is not interested in EPL as he likes the life style in Barcelona. His wife also happy with where they are as they dont want to disturb their kids education. Recently she mentioned that.

Do we need another player who's heart is not really set to play for UTD?
I have never seen a quote from him saying he’s not interested in the EPL. Even if that was once true, it’s possible he wants more playing time or is now open to a move, people change.

I wouldn’t sign his wife or kids so they’ll have to figure that out on their own.

EDIT: I would sign his wife and kids at the moment, especially if they can do a job at RW

He is well past his sell by date - would never settle and the EPL would be too quick for him now

he needs a nice setup in a warm climate - maybe MLS for him but we shouldn’t entertain this at all
