For many, the exchange between Layvin Kurzawa and Mattia De Sciglio is nearing completion. But since yesterday evening, information from Turin shows that the Old Lady is thinking deeply about the idea of letting go of its lateral.
Everything seemed complete. In any case, on the Parisian side. Disappointed by the performance of his side Layvin Kurzawa (27) who never managed to make a profit of the € 24 million spent for him in 2015, Paris Saint-Germain did not take long to accept the idea of an exchange with Mattia De Sciglio (27 years old).
Kurzawa also very quickly said yes to the bianconera offer. It must be said that having the opportunity to bounce back from one of the contenders for the final victory in the Champions League and sign a lease for four and a half years is an opportunity that very rarely presents itself for a player at the bottom of the hole in his club.
This weekend, the leader of the Old Lady Fabio Paratici even confirmed that the case was on the right track. "It is true that we are currently evaluating the possibility of exchange with the PSG".
For his part, to avoid injuring his defender, Thomas Tuchel had decided not to take Kurzawa with the rest of the group to Lille, history that the player settles his situation.
He even said that the former Monegasque had already emptied his locker at the PSG training center. But since yesterday, it would seem that the Piedmontese management has decided to play with the nerves of the Red and Blue.
Juve still wonders
While everything seemed to be settled in this mirror file (players of the same age, same sporting situation, dry exchange), Le Parisien said that Juve was finally claiming a sum of money from PSG. The reason ? De Sciglio's contract ends in 2022 while that of Kurzawa ends at the end of this season. But that's not all. The Gazzetta dello Sport said this morning that Italian leaders are still wondering if the operation is worth it.
De Sciglio remains an element appreciated by his club because he has the advantage of being able to evolve on both sides of the defense (unlike Kurzawa).
In addition, the player also remains an important element of the bianconero wardrobe. For the daily, the case remains possible, but it is still very far from being completed, Juve taking into account all these elements of reflection. As a reminder, the two clubs still have three days to find common ground.
