Thiago Motta wants PSG exit

Thiago Motta has officially requested to leave French moneybags Paris Saint-Germain, according to the Express.

It has been reported that the 32-year-old midfielder, who has failed to hit top form throughout this season, asked to depart the club during a meeting last week. 


Motta has endured a tricky time in Ligue 1 under Laurent Blanc of late, and now seems intent of moving on in the near future, with a number of clubs seemingly interested in his services. 

In fact, the player's agent only recently revealed that the Italian ace could be on the move, as he told Why not? The transfer window is long. We're talking about a champion. If he is to be sold in June, I say, 'We'll see,'" he said.

"If he's the problem, you resolve the problem by transferring Thiago. A message like that is clear for us. We have received the message.


"Thiago is not just any old player, he's a champion. So it's normal other teams look at him. My job is to find a solution to problems, not to create them."

It remains to be seen, however, as to whether he's granted his wish to depart the French giants in this current transfer window. With the transfer market now open, it appears that the race to land the midfielder looks set to heat up in the immediate future. 

Premier League interest 

In fact, he could be on his way to England's elite division before the close of the window, with the duo of Manchester United and Tottenham seemingly interested in his services. It appears that Red Devils boss Louis van Gaal would love to bring the player to Old Trafford as he goes in search of success this season. 

There's no doubt about it, despite having invested in the midfield department this past summer, United could still do with adding to their ranks. The likes of Daley Blind, Marouane Fellaini and Co. have all failed to maintain their fitness at the club this term, so Motta would no doubt add to Van Gaal's options at the club. 

Tottenham, meanwhile, already have a number of options in the midfield area, but could yet challenge United for the player's services, whilst it has also been suggested that Serie A giants Juventus will look to bring him to Italy.
