Deschamps set for Roma talks

Gonzalez, 30, has two years left on his contract but has told the club he wants to move on amid interest from Malaga, AC Milan and Roma.

"Yes, Lucho wants to go," Dassier told OMtv. "He wants a change of environment, but he's a player I like a lot. Personally, I would keep him."

Dassier added in L'Equipe that Gonzalez would have to find a new club before the end of June or "the door will be closed". The club are demanding at least €10 million for the midfielder, who signed from Porto for €18 million in 2009.
