The France international has been with the Ligue 1 champions since July 2011 when the 26-year-old arrived at the Parc des Princes from Serie A giants AS Roma on a three-year deal for a fee of 8m euros.

All of which means that with the prospect of no new deal on the table in the French capital, the wide man is set to leave the big-spending Parisians on a free transfer this summer.

“I had back surgery last summer and, when I was fit again, the coach made his choice,” he told Gazzetta dello Sport.

“(Former coach Carlo) Ancelotti was closer to his players – you felt important with him. Laurent Blanc has a different way of managing. I am a little misunderstood at PSG.

“I had a great time in Rome. I already speak the language. I know Serie A, I know everything about it. The adaptation would be easy.

“I am looking for a team that would make me rediscover the pleasure of playing football.

“Juve is a team that I really like – one of the best in Europe.

“It has a quality workforce, consisting solely of champions – including in my position. But competition does not scare me.”
