So, here’s a transfer rumour you didn’t think you’d be ready today. James Milner to PSG. The French club are still chasing down that elusive Champions League crown, and with Liverpool making back-to-back finals you cannot blame the Parisiens for looking to Anfield for inspiration, and reinforcements.

According to Le Parisien, the Ligue 1 club are interested in swooping for the 33-year-old Liverpool man on a free transfer this summer as Milner’s deal at Anfield is set to expire. The Two-time Premier League winner would be going into the dominant French giants to replace there own departing free agent, Adrien Rabiot, and it’s fair to say that Milner’s experience could be key.
The only reason that anyone signs for PSG at the moment is because they have the credentials of helping the club make headway in Europe. With that in mind, who better to sign than the man who holds the record for the most assists in a single Champions League season, as Milner laid on nine assists for teammates last season, besting the previous record shared by Neymar and Wayne Rooney of eight.

The Reds would do well to ensure that Milner stays on at Anfield next season, and must avoid losing their go-to utility man on a free transfer this summer.
