How Much Chelsea Target Ugarte Will Earn at PSG, Payment Plan to Sporting – Report

Paris Saint-Germain has their defensive midfielder in Manuel Ugarte after the capital club beat out Chelsea to sign the Uruguay international.

Transfer window specialist Fabrizio Romano revealed on Monday how PSG would pay €60 million to Sporting Lisbon for Ugarte. The Italian journalist notes that the Ligue 1 side will start paying the transfer fee in 2024, lasting over five years. 

Doing the quick math means the French giants will be making Sporting Lisbon a yearly payment of €15 million until 2029. As a result, the economical price might be eye-catching, but how it will be paid doesn’t sound too bad and likely allows for further spending this summer. 

Furthermore, GOAL France’s Marc Mechenoua reported on Monday the contract details in the agreement between PSG and Ugarte. The 22-year-old will sign a five-year contract with an annual salary of €3.4 million.

Mechenoua notes that the Ugarte transfer to the French giants will only appear in PSG’s accounts from next year. 

PSG’s investment in Ugarte is one that the capital club hopes fills Thiago Motta’s role in the midfield, as the reigning Ligue 1 champions have whiffed on replacing him since he left in 2018.
