Leonardo did not hesitate. The opportunity was too good, Gianluigi Donnarumma, 22-year-old international goalkeeper, came to the end of his contract at AC Milan and therefore did not cost a penny to transfer. So the Brazilian sports director jumped and seduced the Italian, despite the presence of Keylor Navas, recently extended until 2024, impeccable since his arrival at PSG. This is perhaps the trend of the summer transfer window in Paris, that of jumping on opportunities, even though it is not a matter of priority positions (right side, midfielder).
Proof of this is with the tracks that we have revealed to you to strengthen the central defense. As mentioned yesterday, PSG launched its offensive for Raphaël Varane, the French defender currently at the Euro, under contract until 2022 with Real Madrid. In parallel, he also discusses with Sergio Ramos, who has formalized his departure from Casa Blanca in recent days. According to our information, despite approaches from English clubs in particular, he favors Paris Saint-Germain. Moreover, he confided in some PSG players, such as Navas, Sarabia or Neymar.
Part of the locker room wonders
But all this is not necessarily well received by the Parisian locker room. There is already a form of misunderstanding about the recruitment of Donnarumma, with regard to Navas’ services but also its impact on the Parisian group. The Sergio Ramos track is therefore not to everyone’s taste, and in particular the central Marquinhos-Kimpembe hinge. How to think that the 35-year-old Spanish defender would come to Paris to sit on the sidelines?
Locker room leader and essential holder at Real Madrid, he would represent a competition on these two fields, for Marquinhos and Kimpembe. The departure of Thiago Silva had left them a free field and they delivered a satisfactory season, unlike their liners in central defense. PSG need reinforcements in this position, but perhaps not a potential holder like Sergio Ramos, unless a move to 3 central defenders decided by Mauricio Pochettino, which would also go in the direction of the recruitment of a side as offensive as Hakimi. One thing is certain, although concerned by international competitions, the players keep a close eye on the conduct of the Paris transfer window.
