Blaise Matuidi prefers PSG to Newcastle United.
Prefers PSG ... diplomatically
Alleged Newcastle United target Blaise Matuidi prefers a move to Paris Saint-Germain.

Newcastle has been ‘linked’ with a move for Blaise Matuidi for most of the summer but in a recent interview he seems to be expressing a desire to remain in France. Matuidi said:

I have a contract with St Etienne and so I was prepared to return for pre-season. Having played well doesn’t guarantee a move.

My wishes haven’t changed, but there are things I can’t control. I’m a St Etienne player, but what is true today may not be true tomorrow.

PSG are an attractive club, although other clubs could be attractive too.

Very diplomatic and all bets hedged there by Blaise.

Apparently there’s a €15m buy out clause in his contract, which I would think is a bit rich for Toon finances and, although Liverpool and Arsenal are also supposedly interested in the player, it seems there have been no actual bids made for him yet. (more…)
