According to Tuttosport, Paris Saint-Germain are furious with Leonardo, who took Paqueta before their noses. As the reports say PSG believed that they are the next destination for Paqueta, but Leonardo used his good relations with Flamengo and realized transfer worth 35 million euro.
Additional blow to PSG will probably cause the latest report that AC Milan is in contact with Manchester United to purchase Anthony Martial. The France international arrived at Manchester United in 2015 for 60 million euros, in a deal that can rise to 70 million. Anthony`s contract expires at the end of the season and he still has not extended it, which means he can leave the club for free at the end of the season, or for low sum even this January. PSG expects to sign him as soon as they can, but Leonardo seems to cause them problems again. So far Martial has played 144 games for United, on which he scored 38 goals and created additional 26.
It is believed that Manchester United are keen to sell Anthony even this January, because they might lose him for free at the end of the season. If that happens they will lose 70 million euros, because as soon as Martial makes 25 appearances in the national jersey the additional 10 million clause will activate.
If Leonardo manages to close this deal as well , this will be enormous step forward in bringing the club where it really belongs.
