In this Sunday’s PSG mercato news, Leonardo’s offer for Achraf Hakimi revives the rivalry between the capital club and Chelsea on the file.
Mercato PSG : Achraf Hakimi, Paris SG always ahead?
Leonardo is known to make a hit every time he advances on a file. In the case of Achraf Hakimi, Moroccan defender of Inter Milan, the Brazilian seems to be in difficulties despite a first concrete proposal. With the current situation of crisis that knows the world of soccer, PSG hoped to collect the agreement of the leaders of Inter with its proposal estimated at 60 million euros.
The Inter side demanded 80 million euros, an amount that seems to have cooled the former midfielder of the Parisian club. Leonardo would not have given any more news on this file, according to an information of Tuttosport. This source indicates that this silence benefits for the moment the winner of the last Uefa Champions League; Chelsea.
Tuchel on the point of scorching the politeness to the Parisians?
Coach Thomas Tuchel’s officials are reportedly working on this track, which could therefore escape Paris Saint-Germain. The 22-year-old Moroccan, Achraf Hakimi, was not closed to the idea of joining the main soccer club of Paris. But with this prestigious courtier, things seem to change, especially since Chelsea shows more willingness to have him than Paris SG.
Leonardo was thinking of recruiting the Madrid native to compensate for the possible return of Alessandro Florenzi to As Roma. The sporting director of the Parisian soccer club is studying other tracks, which suggests that Achraf Hakimi was not really his priority. Otherwise, PSG would have increased the pressure on this file.
The real hot files of Paris Saint-Germain
It is known that the big issues of this PSG mercato were the extension of the contracts of Neymar and Kylian Mbappé. If the Brazilian offensive player signed a new lease, the French striker, announced in the papers of Real Madrid, has still not accepted the offer of his management. The versatile Brazilian striker has put an end to the rumor of his return to Barça with his signature.
The transfer market will only open on June 9, so the club from the Parc des Princes still has a few days to work on its files. Nasser Al-Khelaïfi has already confirmed that there will be enough movements within the club this soccer mercato. Of course, the rumors of the transfer market are numerous.
However, Achraf Hakimi was obviously not one of them since concrete acts, from the man who had brought Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Thiago Silva and even David Beckham to PSG, are cited by the Italian media. The price offered by PSG corresponded to the real value of the Moroccan. The specialized website Transfermarkt estimates the defender at €60 million. He was bought by Inter Milan for €45 million while he was playing for Real Madrid.
Wijnaldum’s transfer to Paris SG completed?
For the time being, PSG may be preparing to make official the arrival of Georginio Wijnaldum, for whom an agreement would be almost found with Liverpool. According to RMC and L’Équipe, the remaining details to finalize the file should be settled in the coming hours.
The Parisian manager could therefore soon devote more time to the Hakimi file, unless Chelsea has taken advantage of his calmness of late to snatch his signature.
