Ba has been a bit part player for the Blues ever since joining from Newcastle United back in January 2013, as coach Jose Mourinho has preferred to use either Samuel Eto’o or Fernando Torres in the lone striker role.

The Senegalese hit man has made more appearances from the bench than he has started during his time at Stamford Bridge and is now set to move on at the end of the season in search of more game time.

Ba helped Chelsea reach the UEFA Champions League semi-finals in midweek when he stepped off the bench to score a late goal against Paris St-Germain, and admits he would welcome a move to the big-spending Ligue 1 club.

“I’m looking to leave Chelsea. I want to play the full 90 minutes, get the maximum number of games and enjoy myself.

“I’ve not done that very much this season, and I doubt things will change for me here.

“I could well imagine myself at PSG. That is even though they have taken on a new dimension, and seem to be looking for international stars in the £50million bracket rather than steady performers costing £10m.

“But if PSG are looking for someone to play alongside Zlatan (Ibrahimovic), then I’m their man. They will win the Champions League sooner or later, and not just the one time.

“Jose Mourinho has never explained his decisions to me. I am honestly surprised that I have been this patient. Earlier in my career I would have cracked up or blown a fuse.

“My friends Eden Hazard and Samuel Eto’o have been important. They told me not to give up.

“But Chelsea are at the top of the pyramid. If I leave them I mustn’t make a mistake.”
