Thiago Silva is leaving PSG at the end of the season, a club he has been in since 2012. PSG has already started its search for his successor, too.
reveals that Barcelona’s Samuel Umtiti is their primary choice. Umtiti debuted for France 2016, and became world champion 2018 at the World Cup in Russia.
The 2019-20 French champions have decided not to renew their contract with the Brazilian stopper, who will celebrate his 36th birthday in September. The French stopper Silva is one of those players that Barcelona is ready to sell because of the economic crisis, and he would not mind returning to his homeland either.
PSG will reportedly offer EUR 30 million to the 26-year-old footballer, five more than Barcelona paid to Lyon four years ago. Before the coronavirus pandemic, the Catalans demanded around € 50 million for it, with Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal, Napoli and Inter showing interest in PSG.
