Manchester United and Paris St. Germain could be forced to widen their search for a new playmaker after Valencia midfielder Sofiane Feghouli revealed he is in talks about extending his stay at the Mestalla.
talkSPORT reported last month how Sir Alex Ferguson's side were keeping tabs on the France-born Algeria international.
Feghouli, who moved to Valencia from Grenoble two years ago, has netted three times in six La Liga starts this term and the 22-year-old is a prominent figure in manager Mauricio Pellegrino's side.
Free-spending PSG have become the latest side to be linked with a move for the Algerian, but although he admits he is flattered by such speculation, he insists he is happy to stay in Spain.
"I feel very happy at the club," he said in L'Equipe. "Each year [the club] competes in Europe and its facilities are excellent. I have a contract until 2014 and I am discussing a renewal with the club.
"Talk of a move to PSG makes me proud, but out of respect to the club and the fans I do not want to talk about this. Paris is my city, obviously there is bound to be talk."
