The Portugal international, who joined Barca from Porto in 2004, has a contract until 2010 but said on Thursday that the Catalan giants had told his agent he was free to find himself a new club.
He said: "I will go to England or Italy, I am sure. I won´t stay in Spain because the only club that is of Barca´s level is Madrid and I would never go to Madrid."
