Laurent Blanc expects to commit his future to Paris Saint-Germain by signing a new contract within the next month.

"I hope I can sign a new contract before the Chelsea game on February 16," Blanc said after his side beat Toulouse 2-1 in the Coupe de France on Tuesday.

"My agent will meet the club soon and they will have to reach an agreement. 

"If they can't, we'll see after."

PSG are unbeaten in Ligue 1 this season and hold a 21-point advantage over second place Monaco.
