Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting’s time with Paris Saint-Germain has apparently come to an end. Choupo-Moting is not expected to re-sign with the club for the upcoming season, according to a report from RMC Sport.
Choupo-Moting was offered a one-year contract by the club. However, the forward was seeking more of a commitment from PSG’s board on his future. He pushed for a multi-year contract, but the club refused to meet his demands on such a deal. Talks between the two sides reached a standstill and they are not expected to re-engage on a deal anytime soon.
With Choupo-Moting declining PSG’s offer, he remains a free agent with the ability to sign with any team via a free transfer. At the moment, no other clubs have been reported to show serious interest in a contract deal for the forward. Juventus was recently linked with him on a possible free transfer agreement, but there have been no reports on whether the Serie A side will push to acquire the talent.
With Edinson Cavani no longer with the team and Choupo-Moting not expected to re-sign, the search for a backup center-forward has now become a serious top priority for PSG sporting director Leonardo.
