Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly prepared to activate the €150million release clause in the contract of Milan forward Rafael Leao and also get Inter Milan defender Milan Skriniar for €20million.
The Portuguese star with 11 international caps has four goals and four assists from his first eight league games, as well as three assists from three Champions League fixtures, and it seems Paris Saint-Germain have seen enough to justify a substantial investment.
Paris Saint-Germain sporting director Luis Campos was responsible for bringing Leao to Lille in 2018. As a result, he has been monitoring the young talent for years
Milan Skriniar is also ever-present on the Inter side. He has played 12 games for Inter Milan this term, making three of those in the Champions League. He becomes a free agent in 2023. Big clubs like Barcelona and Real Madrid are hoping to get his signature.
Both players are on the brink of their contracts and have not renewed.
Paris Saint-Germain will return with bids for multiple big names they could not land in the past transfer window, and they could come in January.
With the futures of Lionel Messi and Neymar uncertain, Leao could represent the club’s future going forward with Kylian Mbappe, and he is not the only big-money target mentioned in the report.
