WHAT HAPPENED? After a disappointing finish in Europe this season, Paris Saint-Germain are wasting no time rebuilding their squad for the next campaign. According to Record, the Parisians are set to submit a €60 million bid for Ugarte through agent Jorge Mendes. The defensive midfielder is currently weighing up the offer and remains open to a move to the French capital.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Apart from Ugarte, PSG are also eyeing a move for Bayern Munich defender Hernandez. According to L'Equipe, the Ligue 1 outfit have agreed personal terms and the player is also ready to shift base to Paris. They are looking for a left-footed centre-back as Presnel Kimpembe continues to struggle with injuries.

AND WHAT'S MORE: However, according to the same report, Bayern Munich are not ready to part ways with the player whose contract ends in June 2024. Sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic is ready to present a new three-year deal to Hernandez to convince the defender to continue in Munich.
