Fabrizio Romano, a reporter specializing in the transfer market, said on the 6th (Korean time) that PSG and Benfica are resolving issues related to the Financial Fair Play regulation regarding the transfer of Gonzalo Hamus.
The reporter said on the 4th, “Both sides have completed the agreement on the Hamus transaction and are going to finalize the deal this weekend.” “The verbal agreement is ready, but the two sides are discussing a lease agreement with a full transfer obligation due to the FFP situation in Paris. “he said. 토토 The reporter revealed that the transfer fee for Hamus is a whopping 80 million euros (approximately 113.4 billion won), the package amount including options, and he has completed a personal agreement with PSG on a five-year contract until the summer of 2028.
Hamus, born in 2001, is a striker who grew up in Benfica’s academy. Hamus, who is 185 cm tall and has good off-the-ball movement and decisiveness, has been active in the first team since 2020.
Having scored 41 goals and 16 assists in 106 matches in three seasons at Benfica, he was particularly active in the 2022/23 season, scoring 19 goals and 7 assists in 30 league matches.
Above all, Hamus has the title of a forward striker that draws attention in Portugal. He made his A-match debut on November 17 last year in a friendly against Nigeria ahead of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, and led the team’s 4-0 victory with one goal and one assist in this match.
In the World Cup, he played as a substitute in two group matches and kept the bench in the match against Korea, but Hamus added an assist in addition to a hat trick in the round of 16 against Switzerland, contributing to the team’s 6-1 victory.
Benfica put a 120 million euro (approximately 170.2 billion won) buyout clause in the contract for Hamus. However, after his performance in the World Cup, the transfer became easier as the club lowered his buyout amount to 80 million euros.
Hamus received interest from European big league teams such as Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea (above England) and Napoli (Italy), but eventually accepted PSG’s selection.
PSG’s recent performance in European competitions has not been good due to the absence of a forward striker. Edinson Cavani, Eric-Maxim Chupo-Moting, and Mauro Icardi all left the team, and last season, Kylian Mbappe and Lionel Messi alternately took advantage of the model of standing at zero top.
However, this strategy did not maximize the advantages of the two players in the end, and from the 2021/22 season, they did not cross the wall of the round of 16 in the European competition.
PSG is in the process of reorganizing the offensive team with the possibility of Mbappe leaving. The front striker is the key among them. Hugo Ekitiquera is also a young striker born in 2002, but has less experience than Hamus. If Hamus comes to PSG, the conditions for receiving enough help from Lee Kang-in will be established.
