Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Pablo Sarabia is interested in returning to La Liga in the coming transfer window, with uncertainty over his future in France.


According to a report from Spanish-based news outlet Mundo Deportivo, Sarabia wants to move back to Spain after being dissatisfied with his role at PSG and the number of minutes that he has been given since he arrived.


The report claims that he would be open to returning to La Liga, not just to get more playing time, but to also make a bigger claim to start regularly in the Spanish national team.


Several clubs are interested in signing Sarabia, with Atletico Madrid and former club Sevilla being the clubs that are keen on sealing his signature the most.


Sarabia joined PSG in 2019 from Sevilla for a cut-price €18 million when his market value was €40 million (transfermarkt.com), after nine seasons in La Liga.


Sarabia's most successful spell in Spain was his time at Sevilla, where he formed part of a side that played in four finals.


This season, the 29-year-old has played in 37 games in all competitions, but out of all of them he only started 17, finding it hard to nail down a spot in the starting lineup in place of the likes of Angel Di Maria on the right.


Despite playing for most of PSG's Coupe de France campaign, Sarabia did not start in the final against AS Monaco, coming on with just a minute left to play to run the clock, as PSG won the trophy.


As a result of the lack of minutes, his market value has dropped to €25 million, and the La Liga clubs could be able to get him for a cheaper price than the €18 million that PSG paid for with his value constantly dropping.
