Kolo Muani, the gag that almost derailed his transfer to PSG


By: Manu Tournoux

Randal Kolo Muani made one of his dreams come true this summer by signing for Paris Saint-Germain for the sum of 90 million from Eintracht Frankfurt. However, the French international almost never joined the French club.

The deal between the Parisian and German leaders could never have been concluded. In the very last moments of the transfer window, the two clubs struggled to find an agreement.

Once it was found, Alex Hellmmann, member of the Frankfurt management council, had to validate the Parisian offer via his telephone.

But, as reported this Thursday by the German daily Picture, the latter’s phone had a battery problem and could not validate the Parisian offer which was on the rise. “It is still incredible to this day that a transfer of this magnitude could be managed in this way and within such a tight deadline, » he declared in comments relayed by Bild.

The German leader eventually found a crash charger and was able to complete the operation from a stool near the counter of the restaurant he was in as time ran out.

Complicated beginnings for Kolo Muani

He absolutely wanted this transfer. Randal Kolo Muani did everything to leave Eintracht Frankfurt to join his favorite club Paris Saint-Germain this summer. Author of 5 goals in all competitions, the French international has had a rather complicated start with the Rouge et Bleu.

The former Nantes player is struggling to perform well. Between inefficiency in front of goal, or problems on the technical level, the Frenchman has not regained his splendor and his level of the season spent under the colors of Frankfurt.

Although he has started all the Champions League matches, the number 23 has not yet established himself as a permanent player in Luis Enrique’s system.

If he has a slight lead over his direct competitor Gonçalo Ramos, the native of Bondy must bounce back and get everyone to agree in this second part of the season.

His contribution will be crucial in decisive matches. A Kolo Muani back at his true level would do the capital club a lot of good.
