Koné flattered by PSG interest amid reports he wants to leave

Gladbach midfielder Manu Koné has admitted he's flattered by reports that PSG are interested in signing him.
Manu Koné wants to leave Borussia Mönchengladbach at the end of the season, according to Telefoot.

The French media outlet claims that Paris Saint-Germain, Bayern Munich, Manchester United and Chelsea are leading the race for his signature.

Responding to PSG's reported interest, Koné told Telefoot:

"It's nice to see. People know I'm from Paris. They're a big club, they play in the Champions League and they have big players.

"When you play for them, you can only get better. But I'm at Gladbach, so I have to stay focused. We'll see what happens, I'll stay calm and professional.

Telefoot estimates that it would take an offer of around €45 million to convince Gladbach to sell the 21-year-old midfielder, who is under contract until 2025.

However, Sport Bild recently claimed that he's available for a fee of around €30 million.
