Leonardo’s predecessor at PSG, Antero Henrique could have completed the arrival of a big name for an insane amount of money.
To attract some of the biggest names in world football, PSG have not hesitated to put their hands in their pockets and panic the counters. This was notably the case in 2017 with the arrivals of Neymar and Kylian Mbappé for more than 400M €. A huge spending madness that could have brought other stars to PSG, starting with Jérôme Boateng. In the summer of 2018, the German, then at Bayern Munich, was close to the capital club, where Antero Henrique was clearly ready for anything for him.
Jérôme Boateng finally never joined PSG, and yet… While an amount of € 20M was mentioned at this time for the ex-player of Bayern Munich, Christian Nerlinger, former sports director of the Bavarians, explained for Bild that this price could easily have doubled, but the door was closed with the Germans: “The aborted transfer from Boateng to PSG in 2018? Paris would have paid almost double at the time. In my opinion, this is a missed opportunity. But perfect, Bayern Munich also sets standards ”.
