Paris Saint-Germain centre-back Alex has revealed that he has no immediate intentions of returning to the Premier League, despite interest from Manchester United.
The former Chelsea defender has been linked with a move to Old Trafford in recent months, as David Moyes scrambles to find and experienced replacement for outgoing club captain Nemanja Vidic. However contrary to the idea that he would be keen to once again play his football in England - reinforced by the fact that he contract is soon to expire - the Brazilian has insisted that he sees his future firmly at the Parc des Princes, according to French newspaper Le 10 Sport.
“I am a PSG player today and I give 100%. And I think I'll still [be a] PSG player next season," Alex said, following his side’s 3-1 victory over Chelsea in last night’s Champions League clash.
The 31-year-old left Stamford Bridge in 2012 in order to join PSG’s cause, and has formed a solid partnership at the heart of their defence alongside Thiago Silva. He was at one point thought of as the ideal successor to Vidic at Old Trafford, purely because of his pedigree and overall ability when it comes to marshalling a back line.
However comments from the man himself don’t paint a bright picture for Moyes, and so the Scot may be forced to turn to other targets before the summer window.
