Abidal courts Monaco, PSG

la liga
Former Barcelona defender Eric Abidal says he would be happy to end his career at Monaco, but could yet join Paris Saint-Germain.
The 33-year-old is a free agent after Barca decided against extending his contract at Camp Nou, prompting the former France international to look elsewhere in a bid to prolong his playing days after battling his way back from cancer and a liver transplant.

Speaking to RMC Sport, Abidal discussed several potential destinations, and spoke of his desire to finish his professional career with the club where it all began in 2000.

"I want to continue playing, but I do not know where. I certainly have some options but nothing concrete," he said.

"It would be nice to end my career in France with Monaco, but this is not a priority for me. Equally I could move to Paris Saint-Germain or remain in Spain.

"It is obvious that ASM (Monaco) is one of the best options out there. Now I have to make the right choice and I will take my time in doing so."

The left-back went on to claim he has attracted interest from Lyon and Nice, with their respective head coaches, Remi Garde and Claude Puel, keen on signing the defender.

"Returning to Lyon could also be a good opportunity for me," he said.

"I had Remi Garde saying he would be happy to have me at Lyon, but I have not had any contact with (president) Jean-Michel Aulas.

"I also had Claude Puel asking me to come to Nice. That could be a good option, but I don't exclude any club."
