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."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
