Paris Saint-Germain made several changes to their squad this past summer transfer window. Furthermore, the capital was linked to players whose deals didn’t occur, such as West Ham United’s Mohammed Kudus.
The 23-year-old’s agent recently spoke with RMC Sport and noted that they offered the player to PSG. However, the Ligue 1 giants chose not to proceed with moving forward for the former Ajax star.
“During the entire transfer window, I am harassed by tweets telling me, ‘We have to offer him to Paris’ or ‘Why is this stupid b—h not offering him to Paris’ and ‘what are we waiting for?’ he’s coming to Paris,'” Jennifer Mendelewitsch told the French media outlet (h/t Paris Fans). “In fact, I let it slide. I waited. And once we signed elsewhere, I could say things well.
“He wanted to leave. There weren’t 50,000 clubs that needed a midfielder and could afford it. Obviously, we offered his profile to PSG. Now it is the club’s choice not to move forward. All clubs have the right to decide that they go to another profile or that it is not their priority.”
While PSG wasn’t interested in Kudus, the Ghana international did get a move to the Premier League. Kudus left Ajax, signing for Premier League club West Ham United on a five-year contract for a reported fee of €44.5 million (£38 million) plus add-ons.
The French club brought in two versatile players who can play in the wing and as attacking midfielders such as Kang-in Lee and Marco Asensio. As a result, they probably had these players rated higher than Kudus and landed them, so there was no need to pursue the player.
