PSG have warned Marseille they are in no rush to sell Lorik Cana.Paris Saint Germain have warned Marseille they are in no rush to sell Lorik Cana.
Marseille have expressed an interest in the Albanian international with the player also keen to move to Stade Velodrome.
PSG would like to keep Cana, but would be willing to do business for the right price.
The capital club's chairman Pierre Blayau is surprised Cana wants to leave the Parc des Princes and believes Marseille would struggle to afford him.
"Lorik told me he wants to play in a club where he will be first team member," Blayau told L'Equipe.
"I am surprised after just three matches, he wants a change of air, especially having signed a contract prolongation two months ago, with a signing-on fee.
"I asked him to think about it, especially as he is clearly part of coach Laurent Fournier's sporting plans.
"Lorik Cana is not intransferable, but he is a very good player so he will only be able to leave PSG for a transfer of a certain level. We set a price and my position will be uncompromising.
"It is out of the question to talk about a loan. L'OM is not the only club interested.
"But I repeat - Lorik has been educated at PSG and represents the image of the club.
"His value is high. If Marseille want him, they have to be able to make a serious proposition, paying cash, and it is not the case.
"I had a talk with OM chairman Pape Diouf, who told me he doesn't have the means to pay the fee."
