“We already have an agreement between PSG and Estudiantes for Juan. All that is left is for his representatives to strike a deal. Foyth's sale will be for more than €10m.” Veron told Radio Continental.

The former Manchester United man thinks Foyth has some special abilities “He has an awareness and judgement that is difficult to find in a boy.”

If the deal is done, the teenager will become the fourth-choice central defender in coach Unai Emery's squad behind Thiago Silva, Marquinhos and Kimpembe.
