Two reliable sources of footballing journalism now report that French fullback/wingback Nordi Mukiele has agreed to personal terms with Paris St. Germain. The Montreuil-native currently sits on an expiring contract with his German club and has long been reported to favor a return to his native country. After some that he (like countryman Christopher Nkunku) might be interested in signing an extension with the German Red Bulls this summer, it appears as if his ticket out of Germany is about to be punched.
L'Équipe claims that RB and PSG are currently in "advanced talks" over the final transfer fee. The 24-year-old maintains an estimated market value of €20 million in the latest transfermarkt listings. In confirming the rumor, multiple other footballing media sources differ on what the transfer fee shall be. Sky Germany currently reports on a sum between €13 and €15 million while Foot Mercato asserts that Leipzig shall garner upwards of €15 million.
Guido Schäfer of the local Leipzig Volkszeitung spoke of the full €20 million amount in an article published today. Whatever the ultimate sum proves to be, all signs point to an exit for the player. Germany's main sporting tabloid recently reported that Mukiele has resisted all extension talks, leaving the Saxons eager to cash in on him before he enters the final season of his current deal.
