Paris Saint-Germain defender Presnel Kimpembe admits that his plan was always to continue at the Parc des Princes despite interest from Chelsea.

Chelsea re-signed David Luiz from PSG on deadline day, but they also had their eyes on another defender in Kimpembe and contacted the player's representatives to show their interest.

However, Antonio Conte wanted the experience of Luiz, and Chelsea abandoned their interest in the 21-year-old Frenchman, but Kimpembe stressed that he had no plans to leave the French champions in the summer.

He has his goals for the season, and is confident that he will be able to play regular first team football at PSG.

The defender told French sports daily L’Equipe: “I always wanted to stay.  


“The club respect me, and I respect them too. I have set myself a target of 20 to 25 games this season, and that will be achieved over the course of the season.”

Kimpembe is not against the idea of signing a new deal with PSG too, but admits that it should be beneficial for both him and the club before he agrees to sign on the dotted line.

“I would be a dream to extend my contract here, but we have to agree.

"I will not sign for the club’s pleasure and they won’t give me a contract to make me happy.”

His current contract with PSG runs until 2018 and Kimpembe has started and finished all the three league games for the club this season.
