Paul Pogba is among the main priorities of Leonardo, sporting director of PSG, for the next recruitment in the summer of 2022. But in case it comes to not having the signing of the Manchester United midfielder, the capital club has already identified an option B.
PSG: Aurélien Tchouaméni missing Paul Pogba?
In addition to a great striker to possibly compensate for a departure of Kylian Mbappé, Paris Saint-Germain also planned to hit a big blow at the midfield position. If several names have been circulating for several weeks, including that of Paul Pogba, at the end of his contract with Manchester United, Leonardo could finally find his happiness on the local market, in France.
Indeed, according to the information disclosed by the media ESPN, the Parisian sports director carefully monitor the situation of Aurélien Chouameni. Voted the best hope of the French championship last season, the midfielder of AS Monaco chains good performances and inevitably it attracts beautiful people. The club of the capital will therefore have to deal with an impressive competition for Tchouameni.
Leonardo towards a colossal battle for Aurelian Chouameni
Under contract until 2024 with AS Monaco, Aurélien Tchouameni is valued at 35 million euros by the specialized site Transfermarkt, but should not be sold for less than 60 million euros. An amount that should not scare the Paris Saint-Germain. But the case is still far from won.
“Scouts from Real Madrid, PSG, Manchester United, Liverpool and Manchester City have watched Monaco’s midfield games this season. Sources indicate that it would take an offer between 50 and 60 million euros for Monaco to agree to negotiate, with United being tempted if Paul Pogba does not extend his contract. Chelsea have also already followed the 21-year-old midfielder”, explains the American sports channel ESPN. Leonardo is therefore warned.
