Paris Saint-Germain coach Laurent Blanc has said the French champions have no plans to sign Real Madrid winger Angel di Maria.

Argentina international Di Maria, 25, could feature against PSG in a friendly between the two clubs in Doha on Thursday.

Although Di Maria has been tipped to move from the Bernabeu, where he made 11 La Liga starts in the first half of the season, Blanc said he would not be heading to the French capital.

"All good players are welcome at PSG. But we're talking about a player who's at Real Madrid, one of the best clubs in Europe,” he said.

“I'll be happy to see him play, just like all the Real Madrid players. But signing him is not on the agenda."

Di Maria has been strongly linked with a move to PSG's Ligue 1 rivals Monaco.
