All the transfer news and updates involving PSG
Neymar set for a legal battle against Barcelona
Neymar joined PSG in the last summer for a world record transfer fee of 222 million Euros from La Liga giants Barcelona. However, the Brazilian winger has now filed a lawsuit claiming 30 million Euros from his former club.
According to the Football Espana, a detailed report in a national newspaper states that Neymar wants Barcelona to pay him his dues worth 26 million Euros along with 10% interest. The 25-year old has alleged that he has not received the 26 million renewal bonus which he was set to receive according to his contract at the club.
On the other hand, Barcelona is claiming that they owe Neymar money which he received as the first part of the renewal contract. The Catalan club is also claiming 8.5 million Euros from the winger in damages and interest.
Lucas Moura joins Tottenham from PSG
Lucas Moura, who was struggling for game time at PSG this season has been transferred to Tottenham Hotspur for a reported fee of 25 million pounds. The Brazilian winger needs more time on the pitch should he have ambitions to make the cut for the Brazil FIFA World Cup Squad.
He was looking to make a move away from the club seeking more playing time. He was also linked to various clubs throughout the January window before Mauricio Pochettino finally won the battle for his signature.
Spurs had to fork out 25 million pounds to get their man from PSG. Moura seemed very excited to join Tottenham as he pointed out that the club has a lot of history and admitted it is a pleasure to play for the club.
"The most important thing is to play, Here, I think it's a new challenge to show my talent, my quality. It's also a big club. The history of the club is very interesting. It's a pleasure for me to play for Tottenham." Lucas Moura said
Inter Milan failed to meet PSG's demands for Pastore
Javier Pastore was linked to a move away from PSG as he seeks game time ahead of the World Cup in 2018. The move, however, could not be completed before the deadline day as Inter Milan failed to meet PSG's demands.
Inter Milan sporting director Piero Ausilio explained that it was not possible for Inter to complete the deal as PSG were not ready to let go the player on loan.
"With this, I am not doubting the quality of the player, but as soon as our request of a loan did not meet the expectations of PSG, it was clear that there was no basis for negotiations, and I'd said this in recent days already," Ausilio said as quoted by the ESPN
