Le10 Sport had a report out yesterday that Paris Saint-Germain are still interested in Newcastle midfielder Moussa Sissoko and they are currently monitoring the situation with the 41 times capped French striker.
With only 12 days to go in the summer transfer window any clubs wanting to sign Moussa will need to move quickly, with Rafa Benitez indicating he would not be keen to sell the French powerhouse late in this transfer window.
In fact Rafa has said more than once he doesn’t want to sell Moussa, whom he likes both as a player and a person.
Moussa Sissoko – could be going home to Paris?
There have still been no offers for the big Frenchman with Juventus, Crystal Palace, Real Madrid, Borussia Dortmund, West Brom, Inter Milan and Everton having been some of the clubs linked with Sissoko this summer.
There had been news a week or so ago that PSG could move for Sissoko, but only if their midfielder Blaise Matuidi made a move to Juventus as a replacement for Paul Pogba.
Indeed it had been thought that Sissoko could have been the replacement for Pogba at the Italian giants, but no such move has been made, probably because of the £35M price tag.
Moussa was born in Le Blanc-Mesnil in 1989, which is a commune in the northeastern suburbs of Paris, so PSG is his home town club.
And yes – you got it right – a year last January Moussa made positive comments about PSG, when there were rumors they could be making a move for the midfielder:
This is what Moussa said on January 27th, 2015, when asked if he would leave before the transfer deadline:
“It does not depend on me. I am under contract with Newcastle.”
“My goal is to play at one of the biggest clubs, but it is not up to me.” “It would take an interested club to talk with Newcastle and with my agent so that everyone agrees on it.”
“Today, PSG is one of the best clubs in Europe. If I’m lucky they are interested in me then I would think about it with my agent.”
If PSG are interested in Moussa we could say they would be his dream club – but that would only be a wild guess on our part.
