A new Frenchman will land at PSG. It had been several days since the information that the Parisian club coveted Nordi Mukiele had filtered. The transfer is almost completed this Saturday evening after PSG reached an agreement with Leipzig.
The new face of PSG is starting to be more and more visible and the rejuvenation of the workforce is more and more real. After obtaining the loan of Hugo Ekitike and the successful transfer of Vitinha, the Parisian club should offer its third recruit in the coming hours. In search of new blood in the defensive sector, PSG had noted the name of Nordi Mukiele in its list of priority players for the summer transfer window. The former right side of Montpellier had taken the road to Leipzig and the Bundesliga in the summer of 2018 against 18 million euros.
Mukiele, new straight piston for the future Parisian 3-5-2
In Germany, the talented 24-year-old was quick to explode with one of the country’s top clubs. Semi-finalist of the Champions League in 2020, he opened the doors of the French team and caught the eye of PSG. Luis Campos and his men have been pushing hard in recent days to obtain the permanent transfer of the native of Montreuil. The various media come together to say that RB Leipzig and PSG have reached an agreement this Saturday evening for Mukiele’s departure to Paris.

The transaction amount has not yet filtered. However, we already know that it will not be a loan but a permanent transfer for the 24-year-old. Mukiele has a straight piston profile that fits perfectly into the future tactical scheme desired at PSG by Christophe Galtier with the 3-5-2. With Hakimi and Mukiele, the Parisian club is therefore beefing up its defensive right side with talent, youth and more speed.
