Eintracht Frankfurt star forward Randal Kolo Muani is inching closer to becoming Paris Saint-Germain’s ninth summer signing.
According to Florian Plettenberg, the 24-year-old has agreed personal terms with Les Parisiens, leaving it up to the clubs to determine a transfer fee.
Despite convincing the player to return to his homeland, PSG must allocate significant funds to get the deal over the line, with Frankfurt gunning for a fortune.
It will reportedly take €100 million plus add-ons to receive the Bundesliga giants’ go-ahead, a figure which could deter the record-time Ligue 1 champions from continuing to pursue the Frenchman.
Although PSG’s reputation as heavy spenders precedes them, Nasser Al-Khelaifi has recently changed course, focusing on cost-effective signings instead of chasing top-dollar acquisitions.
His new transfer policy derives from the unpleasant experience with the formidable ‘MNM’ trio’.
Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe and Neymar have given the Paris bigwig a sizeable headache in recent years.
With Messi joining Inter Miami and Mbappe banished from the squad after demolishing his relationship with the club, it’s time for Neymar to end his six-year association with PSG.
In light of recent speculation linking the 31-year-old with a mega-money move to Al-Hilal, the Brazilian has agreed personal terms with former club Barcelona.
Neymar’s imminent exit, compounded by Mbappe’s exclusion from Enrique’s squad, will spell the end of what Al-Khelaifi hoped would be a history-defining attacking partnership in Paris.
But the decomposition of the household trident may not be the end of PSG’s squad overhaul this summer.
Long-serving midfielder Marco Verratti is on the verge of quitting the club after 11 years.
Serie A giants Juventus had been keen on bringing Verratti back to his homeland earlier in the summer, but that hypothesis has vanished.
Chelsea could seize the opportunity to take the 30-year-old to Stamford Bridge amid a nerve-shredding quest to beat Liverpool to Brighton & Hove Albion’s Moises Caicedo.
