PSG transfer news: Les Parisiens join the race for Alex Sandro, Trapp planning to stay in Paris and more - 11th January 2018
Paris Saint-Germain join the race for Alex Sandro
There were reports last week that a £50m deal will be tabled by Chelsea for Juventus' Alex Sandro, whom the Blues targeted last summer as well, but failed to get.
Until last week, Antonio Conte was set to beat Jose Mourinho in the race to sign the full-back but Goal.com has reported that Paris Saint-Germain, who are unable to buy this winter due to Financial Fair Play restrictions, are also interested to bring in the Brazilian at the end of the season
The Serie A champions are ready to let the 26-year-old leave the Allianz Stadium as they have identified Bayer Leverkusen's Wendell as his potential replacement.
Sandro, who has scored a goal and provided five assists in 19 appearances in all competitions this term, is contracted to the Old Lady until the summer of 2020.
Manchester United seal the deal for out of favour Lucas Moura
Manchester United, who have been long-time admirers of Paris Saint-Germain attacker Lucas Moura, are set to unveil the 25-year-old as their first signing of January window, reported Goal.com.
It has been reported that the Red Devils have agreed on a £25m transfer fee with PSG for the South American winger.
Moura, who has played just six times for the French club this season and has not started a game since May, has been facing stiff competition from PSG's world record signing Neymar and Kylian Mbappe.
Les Parisiens will have to sell some of their players to balance their books or they are at a risk of facing sanctions from UEFA with regards to Financial Fair Play.
Kevin Trapp is not interested in leaving Paris Saint-Germain
PSG goalkeeper Kevin Trapp was linked with a move to Premier League as Newcastle United and Liverpool were reported to be vying for the signature of the Germany international.
However, it is being reported by the Daily Mail, that Trapp wants to remain in Paris, at least until the summer.
The 27-year-old has made only two Ligue 1 appearances this season and is focused on winning over head coach Unai Emery after falling behind Alphonse Areola at the Parc des Princes.
"For now I want to stay," Trapp told Goal.com following PSG's 2-0 win over Amiens in the Coupe de la Ligue quarter-final on Wednesday.
"There are things that cannot be changed. As soon as I play, I want to do my best. I want to show that even with this lack of playing time, I am able to play well. The goal after the season is the World Cup," he added.
