The Metro is this afternoon reporting that Paris Saint-Germain manager Carlo Ancelotti has ruled out a move for Arsenal striker Robin Van Persie.
It has of course been a massive story in the last week or so that Van Persie will not be signing a new contract at the Emirates and speculation about his future has been significant.
One of the teams mentioned as a possible destination for him was PSG – who have plenty of money to spend – but Ancelotti has played down these rumours.
The Italian said: “Robin van Persie is not our target. But I think there are a number of other clubs who are interested in him.”
In reality, a move to France was always going to be unlikely for Van Persie, but it is good to have some confirmation from PSG themselves.
As for Van Persie, Manchester City appears to be the most likely destination. They have the money, the Champions League football and the ambition to convince the Dutchman.
Now that their interest in Van Persie has ended, PSG will now move onto other targets including Pescara midfielder Marco Verratti.
The highly-rated Italian could complete a move to the club before the end of the week, reports ESPN.
It is certainly an exciting time for PSG at the moment. They will be looking to add a few more players to their squad before challenging for major honours next season.
