Our colleagues at Foot Mercato report that PSG Sporting Director Leonardo has in recent days made somewhat of a u-turn in opening contract extension conversations with French international left-back Layvin Kurzawa and club captain Thiago Silva, both of who’s deals expire in June.
Having initially wanted to see the back of both players, Leo has now begun conversations with the pair to extend their stays at PSG. However, Kurzawa remains on the fence about this, with him looking into the possibility of making a move abroad. Leo was convinced to reopen these conversations in part because of the expected mess to the upcoming transfer window that COVID-19 will cause, but also because post-January the Frenchman has proved he can perform as an admirable understudy to Juan Bernat.
Silva has on the other hand been very keen to extend his stay in the French capital, but it remains to be seen what sort of deal Leonardo is offering the 35-year-old, both in terms of length and whether there will be a wage drop.
