PSG Mercato: Al-Khelaïfi has tried the move for an extraordinary striker
Despite Lionel Messi, Neymar Jr and Kylian Mbappe, Paris Saint-Germain tried to sign another great world-class striker during this summer mercato. Indeed, according to information gathered by the daily Team, Nasser Al-Khelaïfi has multiplied contacts with Robert Lewandowski, eager to leave Bayern Munich after eight seasons of good and loyal services, and his agent Pini Zahavi.
The sports newspaper explains that the Parisian president even called the Polish international personally to try to convince him to join the Red and Blue. According to the same source, Al-Khelaïfi wanted to rely on his good relationship with Pini Zahavi to try to recruit Lewandowski. Finally, the 33-year-old striker opted for Barcelona, with whom he signed a four-year lease, until June 2026. And the reason for this failure is now known in the capital.
PSG Mercato: Lewandowski turned away from Paris by his wife
Indeed, Team reveals that the case did not finally come to fruition, especially because of the opposition of Robert Lewandowski‘s wife, who did not want to live in Paris. However, Pini Zahavi and Paris Saint-Germain could work together again on other targets by the end of the summer mercato. After twelve years in the Bundesliga, Lewandowski will discover La Liga with a four-year contract. A long-time target of Qatar, the captain of the Polish national team would now have very little chance of landing in Paris Saint-Germain before the end of his European career. Arrived for 45 million euros, Lewandowski is worth the same price according to the specialized site Transfermarkt.
