Chelsea, Arsenal & United suffer transfer blows for January

Published Add your comment

Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi has thrown a spanner in the transfer plans of a number of Premier League giants, by revealing that his club will not be selling any of their players in January.

According to sources in Italy the French champions' chief told reporters that despite increasing interest in a number of players, PSG would not be parting ways with any of them.

"In Italy, they want Pastore, Lavezzi, Lucas and Menez? I want to send a message to all the clubs: in January we will not sell anybody," Al-Khelaifi said.

The news will come as a blow to the likes of Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool, who have all been rumoured to be interested in bringing midfielder Javier Pastore to England.

Yesterday it emerged that the Argentinian playmaker was being tipped for a move away from the Parc des Princes, but it now seems as though he will remain there until at least the end of the season.

Manchester United may also have to look elsewhere in search of a midfielder, as Al-Khelaifi also spoke concerning the future of David Moyes' target Marco Verratti.

The PSG president said: "Marco is still young and lacks a bit 'of experience, however, has a great future here at Paris Saint-Germain, and also with Italy."

PSG are currently sitting at the top of Ligue 1 and are undefeated in their current domestic campaign. Laurent Blanc is unlikely to risk damaging the harmony at the club in January and so United and co. may have to look elsewhere.
