Mercato: PSG recruits “an exceptional player” for €60M

Passionate about sport, cinema and television (on screen and behind) since his childhood, Bernard has been a journalist for 10 Sport since 2018. More skilled with the keyboard in hand than with the ball, he decides to mainly cover a beloved sport, criticized and hated at the same time (football) and a sport that is not one (wrestling).

Arriving during the last summer transfer window for €60M from Sporting, Manuel Ugarte already appears to be an essential pawn in the PSG midfield. Questioned by RMC on the sidelines of the Classic against OM (4-0), Javier Pastore was rave about the Uruguayan international, who reminds him of a certain Thiago Motta.

It is one of the great satisfactions of the Parisian transfer window. Arrived from Sporting for €60M, Manuel Ugarte didn’t take long to impose itself on the PSG, and the debates on the compensation for his transfer have already ended. Former club player, Javier Pastore also appears to be under the spell of the 22-year-old Uruguayan midfielder.

“He’s a player who was missing”

« I had never seen an entire match of him. I started watching him since he arrived at PSG. He is an exceptional player. This is the key for PSG. He knows how to play well in the middle, he is always well placed, he is aggressive when pressing, he recovers the ball and passes it straight forward. He’s a player who was missing. Thiago Motta was the last one a bit like that, even if he didn’t have the aggressiveness of Ugarte. He is a player who will give a lot to PSG », Estimates the former number 27 of the PSG on RMC.

“He is a very complete player technically and with a good reading of the offensive game”

After the Parisian victory against the Borussia Dortmund, Luis Enrique had not hidden all the good things he thought of his number 4: “ He is a tough and strong player, who helps us a lot in our play. He played a very complete match. Manu brings us the energy, the ability to press high and jump the lines, to be hard on the man. He is a very complete player technically and with a good reading of the offensive game. With Warren and Vitinha, they give a lot of balance to the team. »
