Eric-Maxim Choupo-Moting, who was finally recruited by Bayern Munich this summer, was approached by PSG at the end of the summer about a contract extension, as his national coach confirmed.

With the departure at the end of Edinson Cavani’s contract last June, PSG had started looking for a new low-cost profile that could help Mauro Icardi attack. Finally, Leonardo looked at a player he already had in his ranks but who was also at the end of his contract, namely Eric-Maxim Choupo-Moting. Except that the Cameroonian striker refused to continue the adventure at PSG and eventually signed up with Bayern Munich.

“He didn’t want the PSG”

Antonio Conceição, Cameroon coach, commented on PSG’s failure at a press conference on Saturday: “Choupo-Moting ended the season very well and was decisive for Final 8 of the Paris SG in the Champions League. It’s very good for him, his motivation. PSG tried to extend it for a year but didn’t want to. We rely on him very much. He’s an important part of our group, he has a lot of experience, he played for PSG, in England, in Germany, it’s important for the group’s experience. It will always be a key element of our invitations, ”he confided. .
