Barely days after Cameroonian forward Maxi Eric Choupo-Moting penned an emotional farewell message to the PSG fans, there is a fresh twist at the Club that could see the player stay at the Parc De Prince beyond June 30.
The 31-year-old former FSV Mainz forward could be reintroduced in the PSG squad for the knockout rounds of the UEFA Champions League if the European football governing body accepts that the Club replaced him with Cavani who has told PSG he is leaving on June 30.
Cavani is believed to be back in his native Uruguay and unwilling to return to PSG just like Belgian Thomas Munier who is linked with a move to Borussia Dortmund.
These double departures could open doors for Choupo-Moting who has represented the Club in the 2019-2020 UEFA Champions League group stages.
The former Schalke 04 forward moved to the French Capital in 2018 from Stoke City.
Unfortunately, in two years under Thomas Tuchel, he has failed to put together a run of games, and produce the attacking touch he displayed in his days at Schalke 04.
Last week, reports of his departure from dominated headlines amid interest from Turkish, English, and Italian clubs.
Choupo-Moting scored 5 goals in 17 games in all competitions in the just-ended season.
Since swapping Stoke for Paris in August 2018, Choupo-Moting has made 56 appearances and scored 10 goals, providing three assists for the French Ligue 1 champions.
Considered as a utility player under Thomas Tuchel, his stay beyond June 30 could mean the ex-Hamburger SV and Nuremberg front-man will continue the rest of PSG’s UEFA Champions League campaign programmed for August in Lisbon.
Turkish media is reporting that the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon captain has a deal in principle with Fernabahce.
