Tottenham and Manchester United linked Thiago Motta reportedly keen on move

Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Thiago Motta is reportedly keen on leaving the club with Manchester United and Spurs said to be hovering.

Thiago Motta has reportedly asked to leave Paris Saint-Germain in the event that a bid comes in this January.

According to an article in L’Equipe, the 32-year-old has grown increasingly frustrated with life at the Ligue 1 club and his diminished role in first-team proceedings.

Motta is also said to be concerned at the number of big egos currently residing in the PSG dressing room, with the report claiming the midfielder feels many current stars at the club are playing for themselves rather than the team.

This growing sense of disillusionment with the way things are going at the Parc des Princes could see the former Barcelona and Inter Milan star seek a move away from the club this January and the French publication claims that the player has asked PSG to listen to any offers made this month.

Juventus are thought to be weighing up an offer for the Azzurri star, while former club Inter could also be in contention to sign the player.

Arsenal were previously linked with a move for the midfielder, however L’Equipe’s report cites interest from both Manchester United and the Gunners’ north London rivals Tottenham. Both clubs are keen to bolster their respective squads as they look to clinch Champions League qualification over the second half of the season.

Motta is the latest PSG star to be linked with a move away from the club with the South American pairing of Edinson Cavani and Ezequiel Lavezzi both rumoured to be on the radars of several Premier League clubs this month.

The Parisiens have endured a stop-start season in Ligue 1 so far and currently sit third in the table behind leaders Marseille and second-placed Lyon.

PSG are due to face Chelsea in the last-16 of the Champions League next month in a repeat of the quarter-final meeting between the sides in the competition last season.
