When Paris Saint-Germain purchased midfielder Leandro Paredes from FC Zenit Saint Petersburg back in January 2019, Boca Juniors benefitted from the sale of the 26-year-old as they would receive €1.5-million because of the transfer.
The capital club and Argentine club then agreed that PSG would make three payment installments, each worth €519,000. However, Boca Juniors is reporting a problem.
It seems that one of the transactions was hijacked by alleged cyber hackers who remain unidentified. PSG put the money in the account to transfer it, but according to an audit revealed and reports from local media, such as Olé, this money never reached Boca Juniors.
After arduous negotiations between the clubs, PSG undertook to pay again, which means that the French club had to pay approximately half a million euros once more. There’s information on whether this is the last installment of the three payments that Les Parisiens will need to pay.
