In the world of football, surprises are never lacking, and transfer rumors can change a player’s destiny in the blink of an eye. On this occasion, Real Sociedad midfielder Martín Zubimendi is increasingly closer to a possible exit, and a new contender has emerged on the scene: Paris Saint-Germain (PSG).
PSG eyes a LaLiga star to replace Verratti
The news of Marco Verratti’s departure from PSG left a significant hole in the Parisian team’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 throughout the summer transfer window, his departure remains a significant blow for the club.
Verratti, with his vision and quality in midfield, was a key player at PSG for years, 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 termination clause of 60 million euros, is considered by PSG as the ideal candidate to fill the void left by Verratti. Despite the large clause, PSG does not seem to rule out the possibility of paying it 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, these types of investments are not an impediment. The Parisian club would be willing to make a considerable financial effort to strengthen its squad, and it would not be surprising if they went after Zubimendi in the near future.
The saga of this possible transfer promises strong emotions, and PSG fans will be attentive to see if Martín Zubimendi finally lands at the Parc des Princes to take over from Marco Verratti in the French team’s midfield.
