- PSG bid €80m for Kolo Muani
- Eintracht rejected the approach
- The two clubs continue to negotiate
WHAT HAPPENED? According to Sky Sports, the German club have rejected the latest offer from PSG for the French forward, which would have seen them earn €70m (£60.57m/$75.67m) upfront and a further €10m in bonuses. Eintracht remain adamant that they want €100 million (£86m/$109m) for his services and will not accept anything less.
THE BIGGER PICTURE: The two clubs will continue to negotiate so that they can thrash out a deal for Kolo Muani before the transfer window slams shut on September 1. It had earlier been reported that the striker had reached a verbal agreement with PSG which could help the Parisians in negotiating a lower fee for the striker.
AND WHAT'S MORE: The report also mentions that if PSG include Hugo Ekitike in the deal then Eintracht could potentially soften their stance. However, The Eagles are not willing to cover Ekitike's entire wages and hence the player must take a pay cut to join the Bundesliga side on loan.
