PSG will announce the signings of Marco Asensio and Manuel Ugarte in the next few hours. The former will arrive for free after his contract expires at Real Madrid, while the latter will be acquired from Sporting CP for a €60m fee.
After the end of the season, PSG speed up their summer transfer window. In the next few hours, the capital club will register the signings of Marco Asensio and Manuel Ugarte. The two players represented by the popular agent Jorge Mendes underwent medical tests in Paris on Monday.
After seven years at Real Madrid, Marco Asensio said goodbye to the Santiago Bernabeu this Sunday on the sidelines of the match against Athletic Bilbao. The Spaniard wasted no time in picking his next home and he will join PSG as soon as this week. The 27-year-old winger will sign a four-year contract with the Parc des Princes resident team.
PSG will not pay transfer compensation to Real Madrid, but will, of course, have to pay the Spain international's salary. Marco Asensio will join fellow Spaniards and new teammates Juan Bernat and Fabian Ruiz in Paris.
PSG will stretch Manuel Ugarte's payment over five years
For Manuel Ugarte, the agreement is different. Having won a "battle" with Chelsea, PSG agreed to pay the release clause set at €60m by Sporting CP to ensure they acquire the services of the Uruguayan.
L'Equipe revealed the terms of the player's contract, saying that PSG offered Ugarte a "five-year contract with an estimated annual salary of just over €3m per season."
For its part, RMC revealed two important details, concerning the release clause to be paid by PSG to Sporting CP: "The price of the transfer will be spread over five years," they wrote, adding that this maneuver will help PSG in the context of the FFP constraints and also that "it will not be reported in terms of Financial Fair Play until next season."
