PSG is on the verge of completing a deal with Corinthians for the transfer of midfielder Gabriel Moscardo to the French champions.
Ongoing discussions between the two clubs are in the final stages of reaching an agreement, and the 18-year-old player had to undergo checks due to an injury sustained during his time at Corinthians.
Previous reports suggested that PSG would pay approximately €20 million (£17m/$22m) to secure the player’s services.
Chelsea had aimed to secure the signing of Moscardo ahead of PSG, but reports indicate that the midfielder chose to reject the Premier League side in favor of joining the French capital club. The move to PSG has been on the horizon for a while, with Corinthians’ president confirming in December that Moscardo would soon be joining players like Kylian Mbappe and Warren Zaire-Emery at the Parc des Princes.
Moscardo is one of Brazil’s most promising talents. He made his debut for the Corinthians senior team in the Copa Libertadores in June of the previous year and has accumulated 25 appearances for the Brazilian side, finding the back of the net once.
The product of the Corinthians academy will undergo a medical examination in Paris before finalizing the signing of a contract with PSG and completing his transition to European football.
