In an unexpected turn of events, Manuel Ugarte is set to join Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) instead of Chelsea FC. The talented player has reportedly arrived in Paris and is ready to undergo a medical examination before signing the contract with PSG.
The transfer fee for Ugarte is said to be €60 million, with Sporting set to receive the payment from PSG. The news comes as a surprise, considering that Chelsea was previously in the race to sign the player. However, it seems that PSG’s sporting director, Luis Campos, successfully closed the negotiation, leaving Chelsea behind in the pursuit of Ugarte.
The move to PSG marks a significant milestone in Ugarte’s career, as he joins one of the top clubs in European football. PSG’s strong squad and ambitious goals make them an attractive destination for talented players like Ugarte. With his skills and potential, Ugarte will undoubtedly contribute to the team’s success and add depth to their midfield options.
While Chelsea may have missed out on securing Ugarte’s services, they will likely turn their attention to other transfer targets as they continue to strengthen their squad for the upcoming season. Meanwhile, PSG fans can look forward to seeing Ugarte in action, as he joins their star-studded lineup and aims to make a significant impact on the pitch.
