Represented by a certain Mino Raiola, who has been negotiating for months on an extension to his contract with Naples, the Italian attacker Lorenzo Badge is again announced in the viewfinder of PSG on Friday by the Italian press.
In addition to three good football players, that have in common Ligt, Donnarumma and Badge ? Answer : they are all three represented by Mino Raiola, and all three have been linked to PSG in recent times. If the central defender Dutch is clearly a priority for PSG this summer, it is much less obvious for the other two, especially announced in the viewfinder of PSG by the Italian press so far. Concerning the attacker’s pocket Napoli, author of two nice goals with Italy facing Greece and Bosnia recently, the latter had already been linked to the club of the capital in April last, in the context of a difficult season for him in Naples and negotiations that are not progressing on the extension.
In his edition of the day, The Gazzetta dello Sport claims that PSG is interested in him and that Thomas Tuchel was impressed by his match at the Parc des Princes last October (he had scored the first goal in naples, and had also marked the return to San Paolo). The daily paper pink swear even that the PSG would be ready to take action if the president Aurelio De Laurentiis was seen again in the down the amount which he claims for his Italian international, to about 100 million euros. For The Gazzetta, Paris, valued at 60-70 million, and would be ready to try his luck if he were to be placed on the market at this price.
A statement that seems presumptuous in reality. Of course, the MTP is associated to a attacker aside for weeks (David Neres, Nicolas Pepe), but to say that it would be willing to spend so much for the player of Napoli… The fact that Mino Raiola is his agent and negotiating his contract extension for months, there is without doubt no stranger to this rumor. The return of Leonardo, very close to the agent and connoisseur of the Italian market, not more. According to The Gazzetta dello Sport, Raiola must also meet Aurelio De Laurentiis in the coming days to discuss the future Badge, and a possible extension. It would currently € 4.5 million net per year and would like to upgrade to 6.5 million, that would refuse its president.
One understands immediately, therefore, a better understanding of why the PSG is cited as an exit gate potential. If it is not to exclude the possibility that Raiola is actually trying to place the Badge in Paris in case of failure in its negotiations with Naples, it still remains to prove that the PSG will be well interested in his services, especially at the price announced and while it is moving through a folder to more than 75 million, that of de Ligt. Yesterday, the media brazilian UOL also explained that the PSG has maintained active track David Neres (Ajax Amsterdam), but that the latter was related to a sale of Angel Di Maria, who has recently extended and has not been the subject of any rumour of the departure of recently. In other words, there is still a long way to go for that Badge to join in Paris his friend Verratti.
