Menez open to Serie A return

Jeremy Menez has admitted that he is open to a return to Serie A, claiming that he ‘really admires’ Juventus.

The French winger has spent three seasons at Paris Saint-Germain, having moved to Les Parisiens from Roma in 2011.

But with his contract set to expire at the end of the campaign, the 26-year-old has conceded that he will leave on a free transfer in the summer.

“I’ve had a good time at PSG,” he told Gazzetta dello Sport. “Especially on a personal level – I scored 21 goals, made 28 assists and also wore the captain’s armband.

“In the summer I had an operation on my back, and when I returned, the Coach had already decided who he liked.

“The competition does not scare me, but it is not healthy – there have been many choices that I just haven’t understood.

“I felt good in Rome when I was there, and in the future I could return to Italy – I know the language and the League, it would be easy for me to acclimatise.

“I really admire Juventus – they play a great style of football and are destined to win in Europe.

“And then there’s Pogba, who is an extraordinary talent.

“We’ll see what happens. I look and see what interesting projects are out there. I’m not afraid of competition or having to start from scratch, because that’s what happened at PSG.

“And of course there’s Fiorentina as well, with Daniele Prade who took me to Roma.”
