Chelsea star can see himself playing for PSG

Demba Ba has admitted that he would relish a move to Paris Saint-Germain after revealing he supported them as a child.

The Senegalese international helped Chelsea complete a famous comeback against the Parisian club on Tuesday, scoring a late goal to send the Blues through on away goals.

Despite his heroics, he has since admitted that he would be happy to exchange west London for the French capital should the opportunity arise.

"Yes, I could really see myself at Paris, even if the new dimension of the club means they are looking more at international stars at 60 million euros than sure things at 10-15 million," he told Le Parisien.

"But if PSG are looking for a player compatible with Zlatan..." he jokingly added.

Ba will most likely be on the lookout for a new club this summer after Jose Mourinho publicly criticised the striker and his team mates Samuel Eto'o and Fernando Torres.

The former Newcastle United and West Ham star has not had the best of times at Stamford Bridge since joining in January 2013 and came close to leave the club in the January transfer window.

Ba reveals that a move to France was on the cards, but it wasn't to his favoured club PSG but to one of their main rivals.

"I've never played as a professional in France," Ba, who began his career at lower-league side Rouen before moving to Belgian club Mouscron, said. "I thought about it last winter. Things might have worked out with Monaco in January.

"Now, if I leave a club like Chelsea, at the top of the pyramid, I mustn't make a mistake. There aren't many clubs above them."

The subject of Chelsea players joining PSG is a sore subject at the club recently. Both Eden Hazard and Oscar are reportedly main targets for Laurent Blanc with some reports suggesting that a double bid in excess of £90m could be launched to tempt Mourinho.
