Since the takeover of the club by QSI, PSG has always had a hard time separating from unwanted people.
Sometimes Leonardo even seems to be swimming against the tide when he decides to extend unsaleable players like Layvin Kurzawa or Julian Draxler. But the Parisian specialty is letting highly paid players complete their contract, even if it means not playing. This is what elements like Hatem Ben Arfa or Jesé could have done. For his part, Pablo Sarabia, who had a leading role in his team as a striker out of the bench at Paris SG, preferred to try his luck to bounce back in a more modest club. Arriving at Sporting Portugal to revive, the Spanish winger has accomplished his mission and now his value is on the rise. To the point of making a possible very good sale next summer.
20 million euros for Sarabia?

Indeed, Sarabia is loaned until the end of the season to the Lisbon club, but without an option to buy. The auctions will therefore be open in June and the candidates are flocking. Recently, Villarreal took an interest in this file, Unai Emery knowing the profile of the Spaniard well. But two rival clubs, Sevilla FC and Atlético de Madrid, are now in the running. Villarreal could therefore decide to take the lead and is already looking to reach an agreement to bring the player from PSG next summer, even if it means negotiating now. And Paris SG will not be a loser, since, according to Todo Fichajes, the transfer could amount to 20 million euros, the amount almost similar to that released by the club from the capital to bring him from Seville in 2019. A significant inflow of money for Leonardo, who knows that Pablo Sarabia’s future is no longer at PSG, even if the player is still under contract until June 2024.
