Report: PSG present offer of over €20m for Milan star – release clause present in contract

By Oliver Fisher -

Paris Saint-Germain are interested in a move for AC Milan midfielder Ismael Bennacer this summer, according to a report.

A report from Le10Sport earlier in the month claimed that the Ligue 1 giants have set their sights on Bennacer, arguably Milan’s most impressive midfield signing in recent years.

Then, Calciomercato.com published a follow-up by stating that Elliott’s intention is to focus on the 22-year-old for the future. His good performances have doubled his valuation too: he signed for €16million from Empoli and is now worth €30mi+, and that will be the minimum amount to sit at the negotiating table.

According to the latest from French outlet FootMercato (via MilanLive), Bennacer’s name is at the top of Leonardo’s wish list for the summer transfer window. The player has not shown any desire to leave the Rossoneri, but has been scouted several times by PSG.

PSG have presented an offer in excess of €20million, which obviously is not enough, but the most important indiscretion from the outlet is that Bennacer has a release clause in his contract, but it is a value they are not aware of.
