The 24-year-old French international striker joins Paris-SG for five years and as part of a transfer estimated at 90 M€, including 15 in the form of a bonus.
And in the end, PSG wins. After Manuel Ugarte, Ousmane Dembélé, Lucas Hernandez, Bradley Barcola, Kang-in Lee, Milan Skriniar, Marco Asensio, Arnau Tenas, Cher Ndour and Gonçalo Ramos, the capital club finally won their case and recruited Randal Kolo Muani this Friday, just before the transfer market closes. Review of previous episodes. Aiming to recruit young and French people this summer, PSG has been working on this track for long weeks. The former Nantes has found a contractual agreement for several weeks. Frankfurt, however, dragged its feet. Broken promises ? That’s what the 24-year-old felt: so he skipped training on Wednesday, on the eve of the Europa League return dam against Levski Sofia. All after having announced his intention to join Paris in the German press. Since then, he had been waiting patiently… in Paris. Patience rewarded.
However, the deal seemed close to falling through earlier in the day, knowing that Frankfurt did not find a replacement before the market closed (6 p.m. in Germany). Eintracht has long thought of Parisian Hugo Ekitike, but the latter, also courted in England, should finally stay.
Third biggest transfer in the history of PSG
After a season with 23 goals and 17 ists under the colors of Frankfurt, the native of Bondy signs for five years with the club of the French capital. A transfer of €90 million, including €15 in the form of a bonus. Even at 75 M€, it is the third biggest transfer of the champions of France after Neymar (222 M€) and Kylian Mbappé (180). Luis Enrique will be spoiled for choice to compose his attacking trio. A priori, Kolo Muani will be in balance with Ramos to accompany Mbappé and Dembélé on the front of the Parisian attack. The former Nantes player can also play on one side, he who we saw so good last winter at the World Cup in Qatar, with the France team (9 caps, 1 goal). He had notably made a remarkable entrance in the final, against Argentina. This arrival in any case closes the Paris transfer window in the direction of arrivals.
