Chelsea are said to be interested in 19-year-old Brazilian midfielder Thiago Maia who is reportedly valued at £15 million but it seems the young Brazilian will prefer a move to PSG.
“I identify with PSG. Many players say they want to play for Real or Barcelona but I identify with PSG. But that does not mean I’ll go there,” Maia told ESPN Brazil.
“[Contact?] Not yet, but I hope it comes one day. As I said, I identify a lot, I have friends there. Marquinhos told me about the structure of the club. You can see it in his smile that he’s happy. If I go to PSG I will be very happy.
“I leave [my future] in the hands of my mother and agent. My agent came out there and said some things but I called for calm, I am going to think about Santos.
“I think a lot about Santos and the opportunity they have given me. It does not depend only on me but also on Santos.”
