Updates on PSG’s de Ligt pursuit & Cavani’s future

PSG offer de Ligt bumper deal

Matthijs de Ligt had a superb 2018/19 season with Ajax.

The youngster would captain Ajax as they won the Eredivisie and reached the semi-finals of the Champions League.

De Ligt also reached the Nations League final with the Netherlands.

After such an impressive campaign, the 19-year-old has been attracting a lot of attention from Europe’s top clubs.

ESPN would report on Tuesday that FC Barcelona were set to make one last push to sign the centre-back.

However, reliable journalist Fabrizio Romano, writing for the Guardian, has reported that PSG have offered de Ligt a five-year contract worth a staggering £340,000-per-week.

De Ligt is now said to be weighing up his options before making a final decision over his future.

PSG’s offer for the Dutchman is believed to be worth £62 million plus add-ons.

Cavani set for an extension

Elsewhere in the PSG camp, French outlet RMC Sport are reporting that PSG are open to offering Edinson Cavani a contract extension.

Cavani joined PSG in 2013 from Napoli and has gone on to make over 270 appearances for the Ligue 1 outfit.

In those games, Cavani has netted 193 and assisted 40.

The Uruguayan has also won five league titles, four French cups and five French league cups during his stint in France.

The 32-year-old’s current deal runs until July of 2020. However, according to RMC, PSG would be willing to extend that contract so that it expires in 2021.
