Chelsea playmaker on PSG multi-million transfer hitlist

Published Add your comment

Paris Saint-Germain will target moves for Chelsea's Juan Mata, Juventus's Paul Pogba and Newcastle's Yohan Cabaye in the January transfer window, according to L'Equipe.

The Qatari-backed club are reportedly looking to spend big as they aim to make an impact in the Champions League knockout stages and fend off competition from big-spending Monaco in Ligue 1.

Having already splashed huge amounts to bring in the likes of Edinson Cavani over the summer they're ready to open the chequebook again, and have set their sights on two major Premier League talents.

The Ligue 1 leaders were linked with a move for Chelsea ace Juan Mata over the summer and according to L'Equipe look set to make another attempt to lure him from Stamford Bridge in the winter window.

The Spaniard is a fan favourite at Chelsea but is no longer the first-team fixture he once was following the arrival of Jose Mourinho in west London over the summer.

PSG boss Laurent Blanc fuelled the speculation recently that he could be in the market for a new star in January - although the fact Mata has played for Chelsea in the Champions League and is therefore cup-tied will count against him.

The most likely PSG move in January is for Pogba, who has impressed at Juventus since moving from Manchester United last year. According to L'Equipe, a €40 million bid could be in the offing - although a summer transfer would be most likely.

Newcastle ace Cabaye completes the transfer wish list. The French international has previously flirted with the idea of returning to his home country, and has been a target for Arsenal in the past.

"If a new midfielder comes in (during the January transfer window), I would not be against it," he said in November. "You talk about him [Mata] because he is not playing.

"If you wish to bring in quality reinforcements, you need someone who can play in all competitions, and there are not many of them."
