Aspas ‘wants to retire’ at Celta

Celta Vigo’s in-form striker Iago Aspas has no intentions of ever leaving the club despite being linked to a move to Paris Saint-Germain.

The 29-year-old forward – who has netted 15 goals in 19 appearances this year and been capped by Spain – had been linked with a move to the French capital by El Mundo Deportivo, but he has rejected these claims and stated he wants to retire in Vigo.

"PSG has asked about me and other teams, too, but I'm very happy here. There has always been interest from other teams but I will be here as long as the club wants me to stay,” Aspas told Cadena Ser.

"I'm very happy here with my people; to be with my son, my wife, my parents – you cannot pay for that with just money.

“I always dreamed of playing for Celta when I was young. I want to retire here."

Celta sold Aspas to Liverpool for €10m in the summer of 2013 but after scoring only twice in 16 appearances he moved on loan to Sevilla, before eventually returning to Balaidos.
