PSV can cash before flop Gianluca Scamacca | Football

The tall attacker (now 1.95 meters), who was taken over from AS Roma at the age of sixteen, had too often a fight with the ball and got stuck on three pots for Jong PSV. After two and a half seasons, Scamacca was sold to the Italian Sassuolo for half a million euros. Later, the striker would briefly appear as a mercenary at PEC Zwolle, for which his contribution would also be limited with only ten duels.

After that difficult phase in his career, the now 23-year-old Scamacca has developed well in recent years. Last season, after rental periods at Cremonese, PEC Zwolle, Ascoli and Genoa, he was finally able to show his skills in Sassuolo’s shirt and that became a success with sixteen goals in 36 matches in the Serie A, while the born Romein has already won seven international matches for him. the Italian national team to his name. It has made Scamacca suddenly a sought after player.

PSG with striker on the run, PSV cash register rings

According to French media, Paris Saint-Germain will take the lead. The French club, which today presented Christophe Galtier, who arrives from OGC Nice as a new trainer, would like to pay 50 million euros for Scamacca, according to French media. Because then technical manager Marcel Brands negotiated a substantial resale percentage on behalf of PSV when the attacker was sold to Sassuolo in 2017, such a transfer amount would ring the cash register with the people of Eindhoven. According to sources around the Eindhoven club, the financial windfall could rise to 5 million euros.

In that case, the total transfer income of PSV in this transfer summer will be increased to 20 million euros. Mario Götze was previously taken over by Eintracht Frankfurt for 4 million euros, FC Twente took over Michal Sadilek for 1.5 million euros and Ritsu Doan was sold to SC Freiburg for 8.5 million euros. PSV also benefits financially from the sale of former PSV player Steven Bergwijn by Tottenham Hotspur to Ajax, if that transfer was finally completed. That is about 1 million euros.

Expensive guys

PSV itself has spent six million euros in transfer payments so far in this transfer window. Both Luuk de Jong and Guus Til had to pay a compensation sum of 3 million euros, whereby the amount in Til’s case can rise to 4 million euros due to bonuses. The newcomers Xavi Simons, Walter Benitez and Boy Waterman were signed on a free transfer, while Ki-Jana Hoever is on loan from Wolverhampton Wanderers. Brazilian talent Savinho, who has been bought from Atletico Mineiro by the City Group and will end up at PSV via Troyes, will also be hired. PSV do have to dig into their pockets for the salaries of expensive boys such as Benitez, Simons, De Jong and Til, but that is offset by the departure of other expensive players.

Director of football affairs John de Jong has made room in the salary structure by saying goodbye to Maxi Romero (leased to Racing Club in Argentina), Ryan Thomas (left on a free transfer and recovering from a knee injury at De Herdgang), Eran Zahavi (left on a free transfer and now under contract with Maccabi Tel Aviv), Vincent Müller (left free of transfer and now under contract with MSV Duisburg), Yvon Mvogo (end of lease and on his way to the French FC Lorient) and Bruma (leased to Fenerbahce with compulsory purchase option for next year for 3 million euros).
