While his signature seemed acquired, Manuel Ugarte could finally escape PSG …
Expected to be PSG’s first summer recruit, Manuel Ugarte is the subject of an outbid from Chelsea. And the Uruguayan international may have given his agreement to the champions of France, he could well join the Blues rather than the Rouge et Bleu.
While the capital club had resolved to pay the 60 million euros of its release clause, the residents of Stamford Bridge offered Sporting Lisbon to add various bonuses. Above all, the London club are willing to loan the midfielder to Sporting after buying him.
Ruben Amorim, the coach of the Lisbon club has in any case made up his mind. “Obviously it is difficult to keep players like him, he has several clubs behind him, not just one, knowing that our project involves selling and that we missed the Champions League”, he confided.
