Blanc admits negotiations for new PSG deal

20 November 2015, 18:57

Paris - Paris Saint-Germain coach Laurent Blanc confirmed that he is currently in negotiations over an extension to his current contract, which expires at the end of this season.

"We are in discussions about an eventual contract extension. We are negotiating. No decision has been made yet," said Blanc at a press conference ahead of Saturday's Ligue 1 clash with Lorient.

"The fact we are talking shows there is a common desire to do it," added Blanc, who this week celebrated his 50th birthday.

"The club called me to discuss it. It wasn't my request. That is a good thing."

Blanc is in his third season in charge of PSG, whom he led to a clean sweep of the domestic honours in France last season as well as the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

Reaching the last four in that competition and retaining the Ligue 1 title are the primary goals for this season.

"Those are our two major objectives. The national Cups this season are not a major target, which doesn't mean we won't be playing them to win."

PSG are unbeaten in Ligue 1 this season and come into the weekend 10 points clear of second-place Lyon before going to Lorient on Saturday.

They can clinch a place in the last 16 of the Champions League when they visit Swedish side Malmo next midweek.
