On the program of this JT Foot Mercato: PSG begins its revolution, Marcelo has received several offers around the world, Newcastle and West Ham want to sign Alphonse Areola and Leonardo could bounce back faster than expected.
It is the fire in Paris
It’s done, PSG has announced the arrival of Luis Campos at the club. It is the famous Portuguese scout and manager who takes over from Leonardo. He “will be in charge of the organization, recruitment and performance of the men’s professional team of Paris Saint-Germain,” reads the official statement of the club. But PSG is far from stopping there. Another man is getting very close to the club, it is Zinedine Zidane. If we believe Mundo Deportivo and RMC Sport, it is Zizou who should take the place on the Parisian bench. The former coach of Real Madrid is the priority of the club as we have already announced. Some media such as Europe 1 go even further by saying that it is already closed and that an agreement has been found. We are able to confirm that there is a rapprochement between the two parties even if nothing is final yet. For Zidane, there are still several details to be settled, but optimism seems to be in order internally, for a signature of the former number 10 of Les Bleus. It should be noted that Paris Saint-Germain has denied any agreement with the 1998 world champion.
Marcelo, free this summer, is already in great demand. The former Real Madrid fullback was in the papers of OM as we announced this week. And according to Marca, he has already received three concrete offers for the next season. None of them from Marseille, but rather from leagues used to bring players close to the end of their career. These 3 offers would come from Qatar, the United Arab Emirates and Turkey.
Newcastle is going after Areola
Newcastle is on the track of a French world champion. The Magpies are interested in Alphonse Areola. But they will face competition from West Ham on this file. The London club is satisfied with the performance of the goalkeeper on loan from PSG, and could well lift its purchase option, which is about 9 M€.
