The Mirror is reporting that PSG could make a €42M bid for Moussa Sissoko, which using today’s exchange rate is worth around £35.6M
But we probably should be a little skeptical of this report because of two things.
One is that it was the Mirror who reported yesterday that Newcastle want to sell Aleksandar Mitrovic, maybe to Everton, because Rafa no longer trusts him – and that seems to be completely inaccurate.
Moussa Sissoko – his dream club – PSG – readying big bid?
The second thing is that it’s well known Newcastle want £35M for Moussa and the Euro figure just happens to translate to almost exactly that figure.
However just to get over that small problem Newcastle are reported to want €45M for Sissoko, but that a deal could probably be struck for the 26 year-old French International midfielder.
Between €42M and €45M – of course a deal could be struck.
Maybe we are wrong, but we’d be very surprised if this report is accurate.
However we did our homework and yes – PSG is in the list of dream clubs Moussa has talked about – so he would move to his home town club.
PSG want Sissoko as a potential replacement for another French International Blaise Matuidi, who could well be joining Manchester United this summer.
How much would they be willing to pay for Blaise after paying out £110M for Paul Pogba?
The fee that has been mentioned is around £25M, but he’s not as good as Moussa Sissoko – about £10M not as good.
And Newcastle could even sell Moussa on the final day of the transfer window, because we already have his replacement at the club – Mohamed Diame, who we brought in from Hull City for £4.5M – the release clause in his contract.
