Randall Colo Mouani (25, Eintracht Frankfurt) is dreaming of a move to Paris Saint-Germain (PSG). Will he be able to receive a pass from Lee Kang-in (22, Paris Saint-Germain) next season?스포츠토토
‘Sky Sports Germany’ reported on the 5th (Korean time), “Colo Muani agreed to transfer to PSG. He reached a verbal agreement with PSG in principle. Negotiations between the clubs remain.”
France’s ‘L’Equipe’ also said, “Colo Muani has a contract with Frankfurt until 2027, but he told the club’s senior management that he would like to leave this summer.” PSG started discussions to sign him. I want to come to an agreement on the transfer fee with him.”
Kolo Muani is a striker who boasts excellent linking skills and sharp decisions. Despite his height of 187 cm, he has quick feet, so he can play both on the flanks and in the middle. In addition, he has his activity level, so he is practically an all-round striker.
Now Colo Muani wants to return to the French stage after a year. Growing up in Nantes, he wore a Frankfurt uniform ahead of last season and scored 23 goals and 17 assists in 46 matches during the first season, recording the most offensive points in the Bundesliga. It was enough to send a love call to the ‘French champion’ PSG.
The French national soccer team also showed a good appearance. He was selected as a substitute for Christopher Nkunku’s injury at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, and scored one goal and one assist in three games. He tasted a goal in the semi-final against Morocco and was noted for assisting in the final against Argentina.
Naturally, several big clubs showed interest. Manchester United, Bayern Munich, Liverpool and Chelsea have all taken notice of Kolo Mouani. However, with four years remaining on the contract, Frankfurt quickly declared a non-sale and tried to block interest. The requested transfer fee reached a whopping 100 million euros (approximately 144 billion won).
Kolo Muani, who wants a transfer, has personally tried to persuade Frankfurt. According to Sky Sports Germany, he definitely wants a transfer this summer and has already requested a transfer from the club.
PSG plans to recruit Kolo Muani to reinforce the front line. Kylian Mbafewa, who refused to renew the contract, has already crossed the irreversible river, so signing a striker is a must, not an option. The joining of Colo Muani, who can hold out in front, is good news for Lee Kang-in, who will play as a side striker or midfielder.
However, Frankfurt also has no intention of letting him go easily. “We hope to start the new season with Kolo Muani,” Frankfurt coach Dino Topmöller said, adding, “We are happy to have him here. He is our player.”
Sky Sports Germany said: “Frankfurt have so far demanded 100 million euros for Kolo Muani’s ransom. However, the PSG board believes that this amount is unrealistic and does not fit the current situation in the transfer market. It started,” he added.
