In today’s edition, The Team reconsiders the formalization of the transfer of Nuno Mendes. After a season on loan from the Sporting CPthe 19-year-old Portuguese had his purchase option exercised and officially became a player of the PSG this Tuesday. The left-back signed a contract until 2026 with the Rouge & Bleu against “a check slightly over €35 million. » Faced with the late return of John Bernat in the competition, the Portuguese international quickly established himself as a starter in the left lane of defence. “His state of mind and his performances, even if he sometimes lacked consistency, made him the Parisian revelation. » Thus, the Parisian board was convinced by the player and Nasser al-Khelaifi, Leonardo and Mauricio Pochettino agreed two months ago to buy it definitively. ” The PSG attempted to lower the price of the call option but the entry into the file of the real Madridwithout it being known whether the European champion really wanted Mendes or if it was to disrupt his Parisian rival in his negotiations, prompted the former club of the Portuguese international to remain firm on his demands”reports THE.
The sports daily also gives information on the next appointment of Luis Campos in the organization chart of PSG. The Portuguese traveled to Doha to meet the President, Nasser al-Khelaifi (present at Qatar since last week) in order to discuss “outlines of his next mission, which therefore implies that everything was not yet settled. » always according to The Team, Luis Campos should not occupy the role of sporting director and will have a targeted field of action. It will mainly focus on “recruitment and talent detection. It is not certain, for example, that he has control over the training center. » Regarding sales, the PSG can benefit from the expertise ofAntero Henrique in this domain.
Like other media, The Team confirm thatAurelien Tchouameni approaches the real Madrid. In the fight with the PSG in this case, the merengue club will spend 80 million euros, plus bonuses, to secure the services of the midfielder of AS Monaco. This transfer could even be concluded before the end of the week. Yet the PSG hoped to tip the scales in his favor with the help of Kylian Mbappebut in vain. “The former Bordelais never sent an encouraging signal to the champions of France, who did not go any further. » Without the player’s desire to join the Rouge & Bleu, the Parisian leaders did not conduct negotiations with the ASM. Thus, the club du Rocher “could not use this interest to raise the stakes. » Also interested, liverpool has not returned to the charge since his defeat in Champions League.
Finally, the sports daily reports that the president of the FFF, Noel Le Graetmet this Tuesday the entourage of Kylian Mbappe (his mother Fayza Lamarithe lawyer Delphine Verheydenand five other advisers) to “to smooth out the situation around the rights to the image of The french team. » In conflict with the FFF for many months, the number 10 of the Blues wants to resolve this situation. In particular, he refused to participate in commercial operations last March. Thus, a meeting between the boss of French football and the player’s representatives took place this Tuesday morning, at the headquarters of the FFF, “in a ‘cordial and courteous’ climate according to the parties. » The idea was to review the agreement signed (dating from 2010) by all internationals when they arrived in French team “from now on and every four years, to keep pace with developments in the sector. »
Thus, a joint press release was to be scheduled for Tuesday afternoon, but “the two parties finally no longer agreed on the terms after proofreading”precise The Team. But the exchanges between the two parties will continue, as specified Noel Le Graet : “The mood was very constructive. We had indeed agreed together on a press release on a few points. The text that was finally offered to me by Kylian’s advice offended me a little. This agreement does not only concern Kylian but all the players of The french team. We must not forget all the partners who give us a lot of money (…) However, I want to reiterate that Kylian never asked for more money for him. There is no position of strength on his part on the financial side. We’re going to take our time to do things right.”said the president of the FFF.
On his side, The Parisian reconsiders the definitive transfer of Nuno Mendes (19 years old). After a paying loan of €7 million, the PSG paid out €38 million to exercise the call option with the Sporting CP. The good performances of the Portuguese quickly convinced the Parisian leaders. If this amount may seem excessive for some, the former side of the PSG, jimmy algerinobelieves that the price is consistent with the market: “It’s the price to pay, even if it is high for a side, which was perhaps not the case before. But there, it is quite consistent with the market, with everything it has demonstrated and what its potential suggests. So I would say it’s a high price but correct in relation to his level and the shortage of very good players in this position. » From now on, the Portuguese international will have to confirm his potential in his second season, as recalled jimmy algerino : “It’s often difficult to confirm the second season. Without forgetting that he must progress, defensively, on the placement. That’s why beyond the price, it’s interesting to bet on a young player so that he can express himself and become indisputable in this position. »
The Ile-de-France daily also confirms thatAurelien Tchouameni is heading towards the real Madrid. While the PSG had made him a priority to strengthen his midfield, the 22-year-old Frenchman wishes to continue his career in Spain. The club meringue and AS Monaco are close to reaching an agreement after weeks of discussions. “The operation should be completed in the next few hours, according to a source familiar with the matter. Maybe even this Wednesday. » The transfer fee could reach 100M€, bonus included.
