With his nod of approval for a move to join PSG, Randal Kolo Muani now finds himself in a waiting game, as negotiations unfold between the two clubs and are expected to feature some bumps on the road back of the Frenchman to Paris.

The Bondy-born talent is believed to have greenlighted a move to the reigning French champions. A substantial contract awaits him with some verbal agreement already in place or close to being reached with both parties having established contact and talked it over.

Regarding the financial aspect of the transfer, rumors abound. Initially reticent to part with their prolific striker, the German club has seemingly shifted their stance on a potential sale. The catalyst? Randal Kolo Muani's explicit desire, conveyed to his management, to embark on a new journey this summer by joining PSG.

While early reports from RMC Sport speculated the transfer could reach up to €100m, Le Parisien revealed a different, much more affordable reality on Sunday: PSG have submitted a bid of around €60m that, while expected to be rejected, is close to the €70m fee Frankfurt has pitched to PSG if they want to sign their player

A key for this transfer to go through might be the departure of Hugo Ekitike. The writing on the wall suggests that the striker's future no longer aligns with the Parisian organization's plans, and it's been rumored that Frankfurt might entertain the idea of signing the young French striker while selling Kolo Muini for a lower fee in exchange.

As Le Parisien notes, though, these two operations are believed to be operating on completely different scenarios and not linked to each other, although intrinsically bound to converge. In any case, there is a possibility one of the two players ends up moving from PSG to Frankfurt or the other way around with the other staying put.
