PSG: Chelsea especially Ugarte! – Soccer

Initially expected as Paris Saint-Germain’s first recruit during the summer transfer window, Sporting Portugal midfielder Manuel Ugarte (22 years old, 31 games in Liga Sagres this season) will finally join Chelsea! In competition with the recent champion of France, the English club took a definitive advantage on this file, according to information from the Portuguese media Record this Saturday.

Like the Parisians, the Blues agreed to lift the Uruguayan international’s release clause, fixed at 60 million euros, but also took on other operational costs to raise the bill. Moreover, Ugarte personally opted for Chelsea, even without any contesting European competition, in order to fulfill his dream of playing in the Premier League. However, PSG had made a better proposal financially by asking him for an annual salary of 5 million euros, while he will receive 3.5 million euros in London. A first major blow for the Parisian sports adviser Luis Campos?
