In the home stretch of this summer transfer window, Paris Saint-Germain will acquire FC Valence midfielder Carlos Soler in an operation estimated at 20 million euros. Despite an attempt by the La Liga club to retain him, the Spaniard has given his agreement to the reigning French champion.
Carlos Soler arrives at Paris Saint-Germain.
Initially presented as a plan B for Paris Saint-Germain in the event of a failure of negotiations for the Napoli player Fabian Ruiz, FC Valence midfielder Carlos Soler will indeed join the reigning French champion on this summer transfer window.
Indeed, despite the always-awaited arrival of the Neapolitan, the capital club has also decided to finalize the recruitment of the 25-year-old talent.
Soler between 20 and 22 M€
According to information from RMC radio on Tuesday, the two teams have reached a full agreement for the transfer of the Spanish international, estimated at 20 million euros (bonus included). For its part, the daily L’Equipe confirms an imminent operation but for a total of 22 million euros (bonus included). In both cases, this is a correct price for an item at the end of the contract in June 2023.
For his part, the native of Valence has also given the green light for this operation and has already defined the outlines of his future lease in Paris. Despite hesitations accepting such a move, with playing time which will inevitably be reduced, with the approach of the 2022 World Cup, Soler was finally totally seduced by the prospect of joining a European cador.
Valencia tried to extend it
And yet, Valence did everything to retain him! Still according to L’Equipe, the Liga team tried to extend it by submitting a counter-proposal to him with the highest salary in the squad. But in order to take a step forward in his career, Soler opted for PSG, which obviously has the advantage of playing in the Champions League every year. While waiting for a possible central defender, the Paris transfer window, in the direction of arrivals, will therefore very soon get carried away with the formalizations for Ruiz and Soler.
