When he came on the pitch at the Parc des Princes last Sunday against Toulouse (4-0) shortly after the hour, Arthur Zagre did not expect to wear for the first and last Paris Saint-Germain's jersey in Ligue 1. At just 17 years old, Zagre has just entered the club of Titis Parisiens that the club of the capital has chosen to sell to meet its needs on the transfer market.
Transferred to general surprise at AS Monaco (PSG had refused a loan to LOSC a few days ago), Arthur Zagre reported € 10 million to the Parisian banks. A substantial sum for an element that will have walked only once the lawns of L1 with Paris. However, seeing the greatest red and blue hope being dispatched as quickly out of the capital challenges.
Paris has a redemption priority clause
In the columns of The Team, former coach of Zagre in PSG youth team, François Rodrigues, has also delivered a bitter look at this operation. "If he's not able to get into the pro group, then I do not understand. Paris must be able, as do the other big clubs, to reserve two or three places for the great talents of the center. There, I am in misunderstanding. (…) Arthur, it's a rare potential. He has Maxwell, Roberto Carlos in him ".
But we must believe that the financial aspect has won. The Parisian we learn indeed that the check of 10 M € received is added a percentage of 15% on resale. But that's not all. In the event that Arthur Zagre becomes a great player, Paris has negotiated a buyback priority of € 35 million. PSG may have secured his rear, but many still do not understand this departure.
