If you thought that PSG would sit idly by for the last day of the transfer window, it’s missed. After securing the presence of Kylian Mbappé for the coming season, the Parisian club decided to complete a little more an XXL squad. While the return to the highest level of Juan Bernat on the left side of the defense is not yet a certainty, Leonardo has chosen to bet on a bright prospect in Portugal: Nuno Mendes.
But this is not the only move between the two clubs. Disappointing last year and barred by XXL competition, Pablo Sarabia goes the opposite way as part of a dry loan. Despite an interesting rating in Spain after his Euro, the former Sevilla FC had not yet found a taker. In Portugal, he should find playing time and especially allow PSG to save his salary. A win-win deal.
