The operation was however well advanced. Since the arrival of Luis Campos at the head of the Paris sports management, the Lusitanian midfielder was one of the priority objectives to strengthen the workforce of Christophe Galtier. The player was very seduced by the idea of donning the Parisian tunic, and had even already met the leaders of PSG as we revealed to you exclusively on Foot Mercato.
It remained to come to an agreement with Lille, since Olivier Létang, the Lille boss, demanded much more money from the champion of France than from AC Milan. Luis Campos for his part did not want to pay more than 10 million euros for the player whose contract expires in a year. And obviously, there was no agreement with the northern formation. As indicated Sky Italiathe operation is even stopped.
AC Milan back in the race
And inevitably, this benefits AC Milan, whose offer of 15 million euros had been considered acceptable by the management of Lille. According to the transalpine media, the reigning Italian champion is back in the race and the Milanese leaders have restarted contacts with the 24-year-old midfielder’s entourage.
PSG has not necessarily said its last word, but we can say it, the arrival of the Lusitanian international at the Parc des Princes is much less advanced than we might think. It remains to be seen if Luis Campos will try to get back in the race, or if he will let the former Bayern slip away in Italy.
