The Paris Saint-Germain transfer saga with Gabriel Moscardo (18) is finally over. The Brazilian midfielder has signed a four-and-a-half-year contract with the French club, with the official announcement expected in the coming hours.
The deal had been in the works for weeks, but it was delayed by a medical issue. During his January medical, PSG discovered that Moscardo had a left foot injury that required surgery. After a period of negotiation, PSG and Corinthians finally reached an agreement. The French club agreed to pay a €20 million transfer fee (€2 million in bonuses) immediately, and to loan Moscardo back to Corinthians until the summer.
The deal is a major coup for PSG, who are strengthening their squad with a promising young player. Moscardo is a versatile midfielder who can play both defensive and attacking roles. He is also technically gifted and has a good vision of the game.
PSG hope that Moscardo will be able to break into the Paris squad after his loan spell at Corinthians. The player has the potential to become a key player in the years to come.
