WHAT HAPPENED? The newly-crowned Ligue 1 champions are ready to freshen up their ranks in the summer window as they prepare to bid farewell to free agents such as Sergio Ramos and Lionel Messi. Early business is being lined up, with two international performers on their way to Parc des Princes.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: According to Fabrizio Romano, PSG have an agreement in place with Spain international forward Asensio that will see him join as a free agent from Real Madrid on a contract through to 2027. The 27-year-old is due to undergo a medical in the French capital on Monday.

AND WHAT'S MORE: That's to add to the Ugarte deal, with the Uruguayan penning a five-year contract, with a salary worth €3.4 million (£2.9m/$3.6m) and the transfer worth €60m (£51.6m/$64m) over five years, GOAL understands.
