PSG are keen on signing 18-year-old Brazilian midfielder Gabriel Moscardo in the coming weeks from Corinthians. The Parisians are leading the race to land the youngster as their sporting director, Luis Campos, is set to travel to the Neo Química Arena in São Paolo to attend the club’s upcoming game against Internacional on December 2.
His in-person attendance can be seen as a sign of the club’s concrete interest, and the fact that they are desperate to sign him soon. The youngster was promoted to the first team this season, and has made 23 appearances thus far, with one Serie A goal scored.
Gabriel Moscardo on PSG’s radar as Luis Campos makes personal visit to Brazil
The right-footed midfielder is praised for his defensive capabilities, and plays mainly as a holding midfielder. He has a contract until 2026 with Corinthians, which means they are not under any pressure to sell.
They previously rejected a $22 million offer from Chelsea, who are the only other European club to have concrete interest in Gabriel Moscardo. PSG are expected to negotiate with Corinthians over the €30 million expected price, since they consider him a top talent for the future.
Barcelona, Arsenal, Manchester United and Atletico Madrid were also scouting the player over the past few months, but did not make offers. As of now, PSG are the only club realistically interested in signing the teenager, and could get the deal over the line soon.
