Paris Saint-Germain will be one of the protagonists of this last day of the winter Mercato. The Leandro Paredes signature of 47 million euros from Zenit St. Petersburg will not be enough to relax Thomas Tuchel, overwhelmed by the turnaround of this market. Expected second midfielder. This may be Idrissa Guei, for which Everton is still holding. Or Thiago Mendez, Plan B, which can be activated by midnight tonight.
But it was in a different sector that the capital club could have realized the last-minute kick. We must assume that the Paris leaders decided to take the player to compensate for the absence of Neymar, which will be unavailable over the next ten weeks (return in April so). Yesterday, the German press asked for a loan from PSG to Arsenal for Mesut Ozil, which the player would have refused.

This morning, the British press talks about the upcoming offer for the day for Willian, the attacking midfielder of Chelsea. Daily Mail was the first to talk about it Wednesday evening SkySports confirms information this morning. “PSG wants to make an offer today for Willian”says the British media.

But one can reasonably doubt the expediency of the operation. At the age of 30 and under a contract until 2020, Willian was detained last summer, when Barcelona attempted to sign it. The revival would have occurred at the beginning of the transfer window with the proposal to exchange with Malcolm, his young Brazilian compatriot. Chelsea estimates it is more than 45 million Euros, it strongly influences Parisian finances. Such a translation will certainly take place in Europe compared to financial fair play. But within 24 hours after the market closes, the Paris leaders seem ready to play everything.
