His agent, Alessandro Canovi, stated earlier that Motta is likely to leave PSG, highlighting that fact that his client is a champion and will be a top target for a number of sides.

“Why not? The transfer window is long. We’re talking about a champion. If he is to be sold in June, I say, ‘We’ll see,'” he said.

“If he’s the problem, you resolve the problem by transferring Thiago. A message like that is clear for us. We have received the message.

“Thiago is not just any old player, he’s a champion. So it’s normal other teams look at him. My job is to find a solution to problems, not to create them.”

Louis van Gaal was previously linked with the Italian international during his search for a midfield anchorman capable of helping out his struggling back line.
