João Moutinho: “I have always said I would like to play in the English league.”

Speaking to our colleagues at Le Parisien, AS Monaco central midfielder João Moutinho discussed his future.

“I have always said I would like to play in the English league. But for the moment I am happy at Monaco…”

He then addressed rumours that linked him with a departure from Ligue 1 in summer:

“Those were only rumours. I was not in contact with anyone. And there was no desire either on my part.”

When asked about the possibility of AS Monaco going on to win the league, Moutinho admitted that the prospect excited him:

“It would be a magnificent thing. Even if I have already won three league titles with FC Porto, in a player’s career, all of the titles stay with you for life.”
