PSG prepare 120 million euros to take Darwin

Embodied for some time which cemented the scenario of losing the Uruguayan in this market and SAD has already reached echoes of interest from the French club, but also from other European giants.

Offense is one of the areas where Red Squad will change the most, starting right away with Darwin’s departure. There are plenty of European giants who have positioned themselves to secure the Benfica striker, but there is one who is already trying to get ahead of the race and with several million on the table. This is Paris Saint-Germain, a club whose intention to sign the Uruguayan is already known to Luz, and who will already prepare an offer around … 120 million euros (the termination clause is subject to rises to 150 million) to outperform everyone. competition.

In recent hours, “The Athletic”, a renowned English sports news site, announced that the leaders of the Parisian emblem would already be convinced to raise the bar for Darwin, having placed the name of the Uruguayan at the top of the list of reinforcements. for next season.. In this one, PSG should no longer have star Kylian Mbappé, who is out of contract and should be linked to Real Madrid, but he can also transfer another striker, Mauro Icardi, for lack of athletic performance, too. at the already announced departure of winger Di María, also free.

PSG’s interest in the 22-year-old striker who has scored 34 goals in the season’s program is already known to Benfica SAD officials, in a process that will be brokered by businessman Jorge Mendes. However, it is also known that other clubs, such as Manchester United, Chelsea and Atlético de Madrid, in particular these, are also in the race for the player hired in 2020 from Almería for 24 million euros and who can now leave for the same amount. that João Félix won. . Whatever the fate, the sale of Darwin is perceived as inevitable by the reds and as a source of cash which will largely support the revolution which will accompany the arrival in Luz of the new coach, the German Roger Schmidt.

Although it is necessary to deduct the 20% of the capital gain held by Almería and the 10% for previous groups of Darwin businessmen (and an additional 10% if Jorge Mendes is the one who seals the deal ), in addition to the income that could result from the bond loan of 40 million euros announced on Tuesday, the impact of the transfer of Darwin will allow the eagles to attack the market with other arguments.

Given the plans that point to the departure of almost ten players from the current squad, this cake will be decisive in financing the entry of an equal number of reinforcements, which can only be mitigated if Nélson Veríssimo’s successor , in the last assessment that will do, choose to fill more vacancies with young people from the training.

It is certain, believes Luz, the sale of Darwin, who was voted best player in the League for the month of April on Wednesday, in a distinction promoted by the Players’ Union, beating Ricardo Horta and Matheus (both of Braga). Over the past month, the striker has scored six goals and set up two in five appearances.
