Brazilian starlet on verge of PSG move

Santos midfielder Thiago Maia brazil

Santos midfielder Thiago Maia says he would prefer a move to Paris Saint-Germain over Barcelona or Real Madrid.

The 2016 Olympic gold medallist with Brasil has reportedly caught the eye of several clubs, including Chelsea.

But the 19-year-old told ESPN Brasil: “A lot of players say they want to play for Real Madrid or Barcelona but I identify myself with PSG.

“Contact? Not yet but I hope it happens one day. As I said, I identify myself with PSG and I have friends there. Marquinhos has told me what the club is like. It is clear he is happy there.

“If I go there one day, I will be very happy. I am leaving my future in the hands of my mother and my manager though.”
