PSG Benefits Financially from Moussa Diaby’s Move to Aston Villa

The transfer of Moussa Diaby to Aston Villa will benefit Paris Saint-Germain financially. The French club will earn a substantial windfall of approximately €10 million from the sale of Diaby.

Diaby is departing Bayer Leverkusen to join Premier League side Aston Villa. The deal is reportedly worth around €50 million, with PSG receiving 20 percent of the sale. 

In 2019, PSG sold Diaby to Bayer Leverkusen for a reported transfer fee of around €15 million. As part of the deal, the French champions astutely negotiated a resale percentage clause of 20 percent. 

The sale of the Frenchman came with the idea that they would receive a sizeable cut from any future sale of the player. This foresight will pay off handsomely as Diaby prepares for a high-profile move to the Premier League.

Diaby’s time at Bayer Leverkusen has been highly successful, with the 22-year-old winger showcasing his immense potential and becoming an integral part of the team. His impressive performances and consistent contributions on the field have not gone unnoticed, resulting in the Aston Villa move. 

The move to the English top flight will present a new and exciting challenge for the ex-PSG youth product.
