Motta keen to retire at PSG

Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Thiago Motta is set on staying in the French capital until his playing days are over.

The 33-year-old is under contract with PSG until June 2017, and told AFP this week that he would like to retire at Parc des Princes.

"If I can finish here, so much the better, it's difficult to imagine moving now, even if from one year to another things can change," he said.

Motta has two Champions League titles, three Italian league and cup titles amongst other trophies he's managed to collect in his career over the years.

The former Italy international enjoyed six seasons at Barcelona before moving to Atletico Madrid and later Inter Milan.

"I have decided to stay in Paris and I'm happy with that. PSG is my home and I feel important here," added Motta.

He joined the Paris club in 2012 and  has become part of the club's DNA, helping them win three French titles.
