Mathieu Debuchy: “I wanted to leave Arsenal, unfortunately it did not happen.”

Speaking in an interview with L’Équipe, Arsenal’s French international right-back Mathieu Debuchy discussed his future with the North London side.

“These are not easy times. I wanted to find an exit door, but sadly, it was not possible. There was a possibility with Nice, they came to me but it didn’t happen… The manager would have let me leave this summer for free. Brighton enquired in the final days of the window, but a deal did not come about… I train with the pros during the week and I play with the kids on the weekend. I am not the future of the club… I have proved my worth.”

Debuchy also admitted that converting into a central defender is a “possibility”.
