L’Equipe: PSG join Milan in race for Marseille star with objective of spiting Lyon

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have been joined by Paris Saint-Germain in the race to sign Marseille defender Boubacar Kamara this summer, reports in France claim.

It has been well documented by recent reports in the media that Milan are in the market for a new centre-back to become Alessio Romagnoli’s new long-term partner, with Kamara being a name that has been mentioned.

It was recently reported by Calciomercato.com that Milan are ready to make a move for the 21-year-old, whose asking price has been slashed to less than a third of the €90m that was being demanded a few months ago.

L’Equipe then reported on Thursday that Kamara is one of four players beginning with ‘K’ that Milan are scouting in Ligue 1.

However, according to the same outlet (via MilanNews), PSG have also joined the race and their desire is not just sporting. President Nasser Al-Khelaifi wants to sign him to spite rival Jean Michel Aulas, who controls Lyon.

Aulas has apparently complained that Marseille continue to spend big amounts despite the constant losses, so PSG could come to the rescue with the purchase of Kamara.
