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."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
