Lyon said no, it didn't depend on me. This was a conversation between clubs and I respect this because when I signed there I signed for one year, not six months so now I go back to Chelsea for pre-season and let's see in the next months. it was nice to know they wanted me. I have a contract there. It's been my club for three seasons. I have a lot of friends there and if I come back there I am very happy
