Manchester City left back Clichy tempted by Paris Saint-Germain

The 26-year-old has been a mainstay in Roberto Mancini's team after joining last year, but concedes that he finds a potential switch to the French giant an intriguing proposition.

Manchester City left back Gael Clichy has revealed his desire to move to Paris Saint-Germain in the future.

Since joining Roberto Mancini's side last summer, the 26-year-old has gone on to become one of the Premier League’s top performing defenders.

The former Arsenal man has since confessed his desire to one day return back home to his roots, and turn out for the French capital club.

"I'm not going to hide it. Like I've said, Paris is the club of my heart," Clichy told Surface magazine. "To say that I want to play for PSG is another thing, but as they say, football goes very quickly, and we don't don't know what the future holds for us.

"It's certain that the PSG kit is magical. I'd like to discover my own country's league."

Clichy has enjoyed a superb campaign for City so far this term, making 33 appearances in the league, and 44 across all competitions, establishing himself ahead of rival Aleksandar Kolarov in the pecking order.

The fullback will now be hoping for more exposure on the international setup, with Manchester United’s Patrice Evra currently seen as France manager Laurent Blanc’s preferred choice.
