Despite his last minute goal against Paris Saint-Germain that booked a spot in the semi-finals of the Champions League for Chelsea, Demba Ba could be on the move in the summer due to a lack of opportunities, with ironically PSG never far from his thoughts.

Ba has made 23 appearances for Chelsea this season but only three came as part of the starting eleven. He has scored three goals and three assists so far this season.

Ba would love to join PSG, but accepts the fact that the French champions are looking for big name stars rather than players like him in the market.

“Yes, I could see myself in Paris. Even though in their new form the club appear to be looking for international stars at €60m more than players who can give you certain value at €10m-15m”, the 28-year-told Le Parisien.


The Senegalese believes that he can be the perfect partner for Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

“But if PSG are looking for a player who is compatible with Zlatan [Ibrahimovic]….”

The Chelsea striker was born in Paris and has always maintained that he is a childhood PSG fan and would love to play for PSG in the future.

"PSG, I look at them as a fan and as a supporter", he said in December 2012.

"I have never hidden my attraction to the club as a fan, that I have had since I was little."

Ba joined Chelsea in January last year for an undisclosed fee from Newcastle United. The former Hoffenheim striker signed a three-and-a-half-year contract with the Blues, becoming the first ever Senegalese player to join the club.
