Leonardo uneasy about Paris Saint-Germain comeback

Paris Saint-Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic says controversies won't bring him down, and he will stay at the top.
Leonardo was PSG's sporting director between 2011 and 2013.

Leonardo has told RMC it will be "difficult to return to Paris Saint-Germain" as he ponders his future in football.

Leonardo, 45, helped bring a number of high-profile names to PSG, including Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Thiago Silva and Edinson Cavani, during his two-year posting as the club's sporting director between 2011 and 2013.

He left the job shortly after the signing of Cavani as a result of a lengthy suspension imposed on him by the French Football League after he was accused of barging into a...

PSG coy on Dani Alves interest with Barcelona star's contract expiring

ESPN FC's Gabriele Marcotti discusses this weekend's results in Ligue 1, where Paris Saint-Germain took the lead in the league table.

Paris Saint-Germain have refused to be drawn on speculation linking them to Barcelona's Dani Alves.

Alves, 31, is likely to be in the Barcelona lineup when they meet PSG in their Champions League quarterfinal tie next month.

However, media in both France and Spain have repeatedly reported the Brazil international, who is out of contract in the summer, is poised to join the French champions, although Alves himself has denied those claims and said he is happy at the Camp Nou.

Marquinhos' new PSG deal is a shrewd move for the club's future

Paris Saint-Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic says controversies won't bring him down, and he will stay at the top.

Before Brazil's 3-1 win over France at Stade de France on Thursday, Paris was alight with chatter about one of the Selecao's star defenders in Marquinhos. However, the Paris Saint-Germain man was not in action against Les Bleus because of an injury picked up after a gruelling few weeks leading into the international break as the defending French champions fight for success on four fronts.

The reason for Marquinhos being the focus of much of the pre-match discussion was the fact that PSG made it official...

Monaco angered by French Football League decision

Former Juventus star turned director Pavel Nedved has warned the team they need to be very careful in their Champions League quarterfinal against Monaco.

Monaco have criticised the French Football League (LFP) after a request to postpone their match against Montpellier due to European commitments was rejected.

The match was originally due to be played on Feb. 14, but was postponed at short notice because of heavy rain in the principality.

It has now been rescheduled for April 7, but Monaco wanted it to be moved as they are due to play the first leg of their Champions League quarterfinal against Juventus a week later and face six crunch games in the...
