Blaise Matuidi: Paris St Germain contract will expire at the end of the season

The longer negotiations drag on, the more likely an exit from the reigning Ligue 1 champions becomes.

Speculation in France suggests a deal is close, with Matuidi set to prolong his stay in the capital until 2018.

PSG need to move quickly , though, if they are stop the vultures from circling, as the 26-year-old midfielder will be free to discuss pre-contract terms with interested parties in the new year.

Chelsea and Manchester City are among those said to be waiting to pounce, with Matuidi having figured prominently on Premier League radars for some time.

The France international claims 'anything can happen' from this point, but would be prepared to shun interest from afar if a suitable offer is put to him in Paris.

Matuidi told L'Equipe 21: "I am really at ease at PSG.

"My first wish would be to stay. But you can wish for something and sometimes it doesn't happen.

"The club has a special place in my heart, but anything can happen in a career."

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.

amous. If that can be achieved whilst sitting in your pants and without any degree of hard work, all the better. I have no desire to be famous, but the rest of that line suits me just fine. Great article by the way, well worth the wait.

here seems to be little focus on the performance of Besiktas. They played very well and stopped Arsenal from playing. Credit has to go to their manager. As much as Arsenal didn't play too well, we kept a clean sheet, but the home side made it very difficult.
