PSG compete with Chelsea for 20-year-old ‘French god’ who cost more than Lee Kang-In

Paris Saint-Germain’s (PSG) Lee Kang-In (22) could have a new, younger teammate. PSG are in a last-minute battle with Chelsea for “French God” Bradley Barca (20, Olympique Lyonnais).

“PSG and Chelsea are in a race to sign Barca,” France’s RCM Sport reported on Sunday.

“Manchester City have withdrawn from the race to sign Barca, but a strong contender has emerged for PSG. Chelsea.”

A dual French and Togolese citizen who can play as a left or right flanker, Varkola is a versatile resource who can also play as a center forward. He has an excellent ability to put in key passes and is a good finisher. He’s also very active in defense.

A former youth product of French Ligue 1 side Olympique Lyonnais (2010-2021), he came up through the Lyon B team in 2020 before breaking into the first team in the 2021-2022 preseason. He signed his professional contract in January 2022 and is tied to Lyon until 2026.

He has also been a regular on the French national age-group teams. After making his debut with the Under-18s and then the Under-20s on March 29, 2022, he was called up to the Under-21s this year, where he already has five goals and two assists.

According to football statistics site Transfermarkt, he played 26 league games in the 2022-2023 season, scoring five goals and providing nine assists. In all competitions, he has seven goals and 10 assists in 35 appearances. Injuries have hampered him at times, but he’s come back strong in the second half of the season.

PSG values his ability to play on the right, left, and up front. He first caught PSG’s eye when he scored the winning goal in a league match between PSG and Lyon in April. In that match, Lyon won 1-0 thanks to his goal.

Along with Manchester City, German Bundesliga side Leipzig have also been in the hunt for the player, but it looks like it’s a two-way battle between PSG and Chelsea.

Lyon are in no rush to sell Bacca, but are willing to part ways with him if a club pays the expected transfer fee.

“Lyon president Laurent Blanc can’t help but think that Barca will leave the club in the final days of the summer transfer window,” said RCM Sport, adding that “talks between Lyon and Chelsea have been frequent in recent days. The Blues have emerged as a strong contender for PSG. PSG initially made an offer of more than €30 million ($43.7 billion) to Lyon for the 20-year-old, but it was rejected.”

According to RCM Sport, Lyon have set a transfer fee of €50 million ($72.8 billion) for Barca. For now, they have no intention of selling him for less than €35 million.

The estimated transfer fee for Lee Kang-in, who wore a PSG jersey in Mallorca this summer, is 22 million euros (32 billion won). That would make Bradley more expensive than Lee.

It’s still hard to tell which club is the 메이저토토사이트 frontrunner to sign Barkola. In the end, the team with the money could be the one that opens Lyon’s door.

If he does end up in a PSG shirt, Lee will be paired with a striker younger than him. With Kylian Mbappe, 24, returning to the club, competition for a starting spot would be fierce, but with PSG’s willingness to rebuild their squad with promising young talent, he could be assured of some opportunities.

According to South American sports publication BolaVIP, “PSG are thinking about the future of the club and have approached Barca. They want to sign a talented winger who can become the new Mbappe.”
