Last summer during the home stretch of the transfer window, PSG loaned Abdou Diallo to Leipzig with an option to buy.
Even today, the departure of Abdou Diallo is a mystery for many supporters and observers of Paris Saint-Germain. And for good reason, with the establishment of a three-man central defense at the start of the season, the Senegalese international would certainly have benefited from significant playing time at PSG, as Kimpembe and Danilo’s injuries have demonstrated. Nevertheless, Abdou Diallo wanted to join a club in which he would hold. Long courted by AC Milan, the ex-defender of Borussia Dortmund finally joined Leipzig. A rather wise choice for Abdou Diallo and which will bring several million euros to Paris Saint-Germain. Indeed, the champion of France has loaned his defender with a purchase option set at 20 million euros. And according to the German press, the loan will quickly turn into a permanent transfer for the Senegalese.

The German media RBLive indicates this Wednesday that the leaders of Red Bull Leipzig have the firm intention to exercise the option to buy Abdou Diallo as soon as possible. It must be said that the leaders of the Bundesliga club are delighted with the first part of the season for the former Parisian and wish to recruit him permanently. A transfer of around 20 million euros should therefore be concluded as soon as possible between RB Leipzig and Paris Saint-Germain, good news for the Parisian club in the context of financial fair play. This sum will nevertheless have to be reinvested quickly by Luis Campos insofar as the Portuguese is actively seeking… a central defender. From this winter, PSG could grab a player in this position. Long priority of the club, Milan Skriniar is now inaccessible since he will extend his contract at Inter Milan. It therefore remains to be seen what will be the preferred target of the Parisian staff in this position while at the same time, Luis Campos and Nasser Al-Khelaïfi hope to extend the contracts of Sergio Ramos and Presnel Kimpembe.
