“I want to say that I am attached to the club which has the ambition to win everything, to the city of Paris, and that I concentrate on my season.”

Areola has become the club’s first choice keeper this season after leapfrogging Kevin Trapp, however with the keeper yet to sign a new deal with the club, he admits that he will at some point sit down to talk with his current club about his long term future in the French capital.

“All that is said about me is false! We will talk about my future in-house with the club.”
