But the PSG star will be “In any case winner[e]” : “If he leaves this summer, the few clubs that can position themselves are big clubs like Real, who are aiming for the Champions League. He would certainly be very happy there and very well paid. Otherwise he will sign again. He holds the keys to the game.”.
