Diego Lugano: Planning to make a fresh start this summer

The Uruguayan defender spent the second half of the 2012/13 campaign in Spain after falling out of favour in France.

The 32-year-old does not expect to see that agreement extended and will return to PSG for pre-season training.

Lugano will, however, be looking to make his way through the exit door at Parc des Princes at some stage during the current transfer window.

He told Urugol: "I will return to Paris St Germain. I was only on loan to Malaga and it is over, so I am returning to Paris.

"What else can I say? There is nothing to say yet. I will return to PSG and do the pre-season with the intention of leaving.

"I haven't decided where yet. I will return to France, but I will be trying to leave.

"I say try because I am a PSG player and they won't let me leave if they think I can be of use there. The idea is that they will give me the freedom to find another team."

m not sure about this distance covered malarky, plus that stat comes with *since February attached to it, that's just 1 month. I mean I have 27 open cases I'm 'working on' at the moment but believe me others with 10 cases work harder than I do. I just got back from a pub lunch, scampi and chips (+4 pints) in case you were wondering.
