Nantes captain Mickael Landreau has confirmed he will move on in the summer.
Nantes captain Mickael Landreau has confirmed he will move on from Les Canaris at the end of the season.
The keeper has given over a decade of sterling service to Nantes and feels the time is right for a move away from Stade de La Beaujoire.
"13 years after my arrival at Nantes, with 10 years with the professionals, I have decided to leave FC Nantes at the end of the season," said Landreau.
Landreau admits he agonised over his decision to leave Nantes.
"For a long time I told myself that situation would be difficult," he added. "It is a difficult moment.
"I am quite affected, because all those years here have been fantastic. The fans have been tremendous."
A clutch of clubs including Arsenal, Milan and Internazionale have been linked with the 26-year-old, but Paris Saint Germain remain favourites to land the classy custodian.
Landreau says he is not yet in a position to divulge the name of his new club.
"I have always wanted to improve and I believe that, to achieve it, I have to give myself new challenges," he added. "Today I won't give the name of the club.
"The officials of the club I chose will communicate when the time is right.
"As long as nothing is official I won't talk anymore about that situation.
"Now I will go on giving my best until the end of the season."
