"It's true that we received an offer from Panathinaikos a few days ago. I speak very often with the technical director of Panathinaikos.
"Me and my son, we chew over their offer. My son is a free agent right after the end of the Clausura, in June.
"I can say that Juan Sebastian would love to play football in a Panathinaikos shirt. I have spoken with him many times about Greece and he told me that, if some day he is going to play football there, it would only be for Panathinaikos.
"I know that he wants to come back to Europe to play in the European competitions."
