Transfer talk: Manchester United target Blaise Matuidi focused on France, not Paris Saint-Germain future
Amid talk of a transfer away from the French capital, the midfielder insists his focus is on international duty and a friendly date with England
Blaise Matuidi refused to entertain talk of him leaving Paris Saint-Germain as he prepares for France’s clash with England on Tuesday.
The 30-year-old midfielder, who featured in Les Bleus’ World Cup qualifying defeat to Sweden on Friday, has been linked with a move away from Paris, with Manchester United among the reported suitors.

But Matuidi had little to say on the matter ahead of France’s next game – an international friendly – as he insisted his focus was on his country and not PSG.
“My head today is [thinking about] France, I’m focused on Tuesday,” he said.
“As for PSG [and talk of leaving], I have nothing else to say about it.”
