The world of football is never short of surprises and transfer rumors can change a player’s fortunes in an instant. On this occasion, Real Sociedad midfielder Martín Zubimendi moves ever closer to a possible exit and a new contender has emerged: Paris Saint-Germain (PSG).
PSG are hoping for a LaLiga star to replace Verratti
The news of Marco Verratti’s departure from PSG has left a significant gap in the Parisian side’s midfield and now Zubimendi is at the top of the wish list to fill that void, according to Todo Fichajes. Although there was speculation about Verratti’s departure during the summer transfer window, his departure remains a major blow for the club.
Verratti has been a key player at PSG for years with his vision and quality in midfield and finding a suitable replacement has become a priority. In this sense, Martín Zubimendi, currently in the ranks of Real Sociedad, has caught the attention of PSG.
Zubimendi, who has a contract with Real Sociedad until 2027 and a release clause of 60 million euros, is seen at PSG as the ideal candidate to fill the gap left by Verratti. Despite the big clause, PSG does not appear to be ruling out the possibility of paying to secure Zubimendi’s services.
Zubimendi’s clause may be an obstacle for some clubs with more limited budgets, but for a giant like PSG such investments are not an obstacle. The Parisian club would be willing to make significant financial efforts to strengthen their squad and it would not be surprising if they were to target Zubimendi in the near future.
The saga of this potential transfer promises great emotions and PSG fans will be eager to see if Martín Zubimendi finally lands at the Parc des Princes to replace Marco Verratti in the French team’s midfield.
