Foot PSG – Newcastle cracks and offers Ekitike to PSG

If everything seemed settled for the departure of Hugo Ekitike to Newcastle, the player’s agent ended up annoying the leaders of the English club. PSG are once again favorites to secure the Stade de Reims striker.

Since the arrival of the Saudi sovereign wealth fund in Newcastle, many observers believed that Pandora’s box had been opened, as had the door to a big mess in the transfer market. But the end of the Magpies season proved otherwise. Today is the time to prepare for the new season at Newcastle and Hugo Ekitike was to be the club’s first good move this summer. Everything seemed to be settled in this transfer, but the player’s agent has, it seems, screwed up everything. PSG will not be asked to position themselves on the file.

Newcastle drop Hugo Ekitike

Everything was therefore ready for the arrival of Hugo Ekitike at Newcastle and the player was enthusiastic about the idea of ​​joining the Premier League, but some contract details remained to be settled. Finally, 90Min indicates that the Magpies have made the choice to withdraw from the negotiations. According to the English media, Hugo Ekitike’s agent was very greedy when negotiating certain signing bonuses, which deeply chilled the leaders of Newcastle.

Negotiations are therefore suspended for a time and if the Reims striker remains in the small papers of the Magpies, the club gives itself time to study other avenues. This imbroglio did not fall on deaf ears and PSG, which already inquired about Ekitike at the end of the season, are once again the favorites in this matter. The price set by Stade de Reims is around 35 million euros. Hugo Ekitike could then join Kylian Mbappé, of whom he has always admitted to being a big fan.
