Dortmund's Diallo heading to PSG: report

2019-07-15 15:39

Berlin - French defender Abdou Diallo is on the brink of a €32 million move from Borussia Dortmund to Paris Saint-Germain, German magazine Kicker reported Monday.

Diallo, 23, was absent from the Dortmund squad who set off earlier Monday for a pre-season US tour and is expected to take a medical prior to signing a five-year deal for the French champions, Kicker said.

An automatic choice for the German club last season with 28 Bundesliga matches and seven Champions League appearances, the France under-21 international would have more trouble establishing himself at PSG if the move goes through. 

With Diallo, coach Thomas Tuchel would dispose of an embarrassment of riches in central defence with Thiago Silva, Marquinhos, and Presnel Kimpembe competing with him for the central defender roles.
