One of the most surprising transfers in recent years can be taking place in the next few weeks, as French giants Paris Saint-Germain have been linked with a move that no one saw coming. An Adrien Rabiot exit from the team is imminent and Les Parisiens have started the search to replace the midfielder and boost their ranks.
That’s why they are monitoring James Milner's contract situation with Liverpool, as the current Ligue 1 champions are eager to land the 33-year-old midfielder this summer. Milner hasn’t agreed to extend his stay at Anfield yet, and many fans aren’t that sure on whether he will decide to leave the club for free this upcoming summer transfer window.
According to Le Parisien PSG are ready to push for a free transfer this summer, expecting to see Milner following Manchester United star Ander Herrera’s footsteps and join the Spaniard at the Parc des Princes.
The expiration date of Milner’s contract is an uncertain right now since some people say it ends this offseason, but Liverpool Echo journalist James Pearce claims that his deal expires in 2020. If the contract expires this summer, that would allow the French to sign Milner for free as they intend to raise money to appease UEFA's Financial Fair Play regulations.
This season Milner has taken his game to the next level; contrary to what happens to most players that reach his age, James has actually gotten better, becoming one of the best players in his position in Europe and one of the leaders of Liverpool. He’s played mainly as primarily as a central midfielder this term, although he’s been at full-back on a number of occasions, displaying how good he is to Jurgen Klopp's team.
