PSG is wasting no time revamping its squad after a disappointing European finish this season.
Paris Saint-Germain appears to be aiming to tighten its defence with reports of a potential deal with Bayern Munich’s defender Lucas Hernandez, according to L’Equipe.
A struggling injured Presnel Kimpembe has enabled the Parisians to agree on personal terms with Hernandez, who has a year remaining on his contract with Bayern Munich.
However, L’Equipe said PSG is expected to face a disturbance with the deal as Bayern Munich’s Sporting Director Hasan Salihamidzic is ready to present a new three-year contract to Hernandez to convince the defender to remain on the squad.
The 27-year-old has a long history of career injuries. He was ruled out of the Qatar 2022 World Cup after rupturing his anterior cruciate ligament in his team’s 4-1 Group D win over Australia.
But, Hernandez is known for his versatility and defensive knacks when his fitness allows.
In addition to capturing Hernandez, Portugal media has reported that PSG has offered €60 million for Sporting CP’s Manuel Ugarte.
According to Record, the defensive midfielder is currently weighing up the offer and remains open to moving to the French capital.
A rising talent in football, Chelsea targeted Ugarte as club owner Todd Boehly was reportedly a fan of the Uruguayan footballer.
A five-year contract at the Parc des Princes may be inscribed to Ugarte, marking it his third team in his career.
