Mathieu Debuchy could be set for a switch to Paris Saint-Germain after admitting he misses Champions League football.

The France international took part in the competition while at Lille, after helping the club to secure the Ligue 1 title in the 2010/11 season. He then secured a move to Newcastle in January 2013, in a £5million switch. However, after a year and a half in the Premier League, he has admitted that he misses European competition.

Speaking in the Evening Chronicle, the right back admitted, “Personally, it’s a great adventure. I have discovered English charm, which is very hard, Newcastle and their extraordinary fans.

“Having said that, I miss European football and the Champions League in particular.”

However, Debuchy isn’t currently thinking beyond his next World Cup game, and will not consider his future until he returns home from the tournament.

The French international is currently impressing in Brazil, having started in both of France’s group stage games, ahead of Manchester City’s new signing, Bacary Sagna.

He said, “For the moment, I’m concentrating on the World Cup. We’ll see about the rest afterwards.”

A return to France could be on the cards, following former teammate Yohan Cabaye to Paris Saint-Germain, although any deal may rely on the French champions selling some of their own players this summer, after being hit with Financial Fair Play sanctions. The £50million signing of David Luiz probably hasn’t helped PSG to meet UEFA’s targets either.

However, Financial Fair Play hasn’t seemed to stop PSG, who recently failed to land Eden Hazard with a £60million bid, so a bid for Debuchy cannot be ruled out.
