Nene: PSG will let me go back to Brazil

The PSG attacker has fallen out of favor under Carlo Ancelotti, and even though Besiktas was strongly linked with the player, it seems that South America is his ideal destination.

Paris Saint-Germain attacker Nene has revealed that he plans to return to his native Brazil in the January transfer window.

The 32-year-old Nene had been linked with a move to Turkish team Besiktas by some media reports, but he said that he wishes to go back to his birth country. Nene has claimed that his move has been agreed upon by PSG chief Leonardo.

"My intention is to play in Brazil - that is clear for me - I have already spoken to Leonardo and they will agree to let me go," Nene told Brazilian sports daily Lance. "My idea is to return to Brazil but I also have offers from European clubs, clubs in Sao Paulo and another country. [But] my priority is to head home."

The attacker starred in the last Ligue 1 season but has fallen out of favor under Carlo Ancelotti in recent months, with the summer signings having forced him down the PSG pecking order.
