Three weeks before the end of the transfer window and while Alessandro Florenzi is still the only recruit of the summer, PSG is exploring a new avenue in midfield.
Asked several times this summer about the summer transfer window, Leonardo has never deviated. Not spared by the crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic, the PSG will not allow itself any madness, especially since the capital club had to pay 50 million euros even before the start of the summer to lift the option to buy Mauro Icardi. And the gains generated by the good course of Thomas Tuchel’s troops in the Champions League have not changed the case.
The first transfer made by the Rouge et Bleu was also in line with the Brazilian leader’s predictions. Because the file of the right side may well see being erected as a priority by the Parisian leaders, the arrival ofAlessandro Florenzi ultimately cost only one million euros, the price of the loan of the Italian international, with a purchase option of 10 million euros.
Not really the profile sought but free …
The Belgian midfielder, who does not fit into Antonio Conte’s plans and comes out of a successful loan to Cagliari, does not necessarily correspond to the athletic profile initially sought by the Parisian sports director. But its very low cost could make the difference.
