Liverpool and Arsenal target Menez wants out of PSG

Jeremy Menez, whose contract expires at the end of June, admits his time at Paris Saint Germain could be coming to an end.

Jeremy Menez, whose contract expires at the end of June, admits his time at Paris Saint Germain could be coming to an end.

Arsenal and Liverpool are amongst those credited with a previous interest in the 26 year old Frenchman, who would be able to sign on a Bosman deal, while Juventus have also been linked.

"I had back surgery last summer and, when I was fit again, the coach made his choice," he told Gazzetta dello Sport.

"(Former coach Carlo) Ancelotti was closer to his players - you felt important with him. Laurent Blanc has a different way of managing. I am a little misunderstood at PSG."

Menez has made just nine starts in all competitions for Blanc's side this term and, after spending three years with Roma before moving to the French capital in 2011, indicated he would be in favour of returning to Italy.

"I had a great time in Rome," he said. "I already speak the language. I know Serie A, I know everything about it. The adaptation would be easy.
"I am looking for a team that would make me rediscover the pleasure of playing football.

"As for my character, I've changed. The rebellious image is a thing of the past. I am 26 years old and have a family which makes me calm. I'm more mature, and I can prove it on the field."

He added: "Juve is a team that I really like - one of the best in Europe.

"It has a quality workforce, consisting solely of champions - including in my position. But competition does not scare me."
