On Wednesday, Brazilian website UOL brings a very interesting story on Paris Saint Germain’s plans for the summer transfer market.
They claim midfielder Thiago Motta will be leaving the club at the end of the season due to behavioural problems. That will force the French side to go after another player for the position.
PSG’s number one target would be Monaco’s Fabinho, who had already been in negotiations with the club last year. The fact that he’s well adapted to French football and that he can play on multiple positions makes him the priority.
But there’s an alternative to Fabinho, and that’s N’Golo Kante from Chelsea.
The Frenchman is said to be a ‘possibility’ for the club. What makes him a second option is that Chelsea rate him highly, and consider him to be worth €60m. That would be ‘extremely expensive’ for PSG.
Although a couple of English websites have covered this story saying the talks for Kante have already started, that’s not what UOL writes. The outlet reports the interest, but makes it clear that his price makes the transfer unlikely.
