Blaise Matuidi spent six years with the Ligue 1 giants before making the move to Juventus at the start of the season.

However, the Frenchman revealed he had conversations with various players, who wanted him to remain at the club.

"Without going into details, I had a discussion with Neymar," the 30-year-old told L'Equipe.  "I talked a lot with Dani Alves too, with Thiago Motta.
"In short, they all wanted me to stay, because, beyond my qualities, I spent six years in Paris and I know this club very well.
"But my choice was made and I would have been frustrated at the end of my career not to try to play abroad. And what an experience, it is beautiful."
