thumbnail Hello,

The French winger has strongly hinted at a summer exit from the club and believes Paul Pogba could adapt well to Laurent Blanc's side

Paris Saint-Germain attacker Jeremy Menez has hinted he could be tempted by potential interest from Juventus.

The Italian champions were linked with a move for Menez during the Januar transfer window, with the Frenchman having fallen behind Edinson Cavani, Ezequiel Lavezzi and Lucas Moura in pecking order at Parc des Princes.

With Real Sociedad star Antoine Griezmann having also been linked with Laurent Blanc's team, Menez could find himself forced to seek pastures new in the summer, and he admits a return to Serie A with Antonio Conte's side would be an attractive prospect.

"Juve are a team that I really like. They are one of the strongest in Europe, destined to play a leading role in the Champions League," he told Gazzetta dello Sport. "The squad is full of quality, full of champions, even in my position.

"The years in Roma where important to me. I speak the language, I know the league. It would be easy to acclimatise.

"Above all I'm trying to find a team that allows me to express myself better. Let's see what happens in June."

Menez also hinted at possible interest in joining the "challenge" at Ligue 1 title rivals Monaco.

"There is mutual respect with [Claudio] Ranieri," he said. "Monaco are a great club and I like challenges. I am open to interesting projects, but the most important thing is to get back to having fun on the pitch."

Despite his lack of playing time, Menez was keen to stress he was benefitting from the competition for places at PSG.

"The competition doesn't scare me, it's part of the trade," he said.

"But I have seen that sometimes it is not so healthy to PSG. Even giving your all is not enough. But the coach's choices must be respected, even if I do not understand them. [Former coach Carlo] Ancelotti is closer to the players, he makes you feel important. Blanc has a different way of dealing with them.

"PSG has been a positive experience. I was captain and I think I have contributed to the growth of the team."

Finally, Menez believes Paul Pogba would have little trouble in adjusting to life in Paris should he join the club from Juventus during the summer.

"He's at a point in his career where he must make the right choices," added the 26-year-old. "He's still young, but he has the talent to prevail in a midfield like PSG's."
