Thilo Kehrer set to move to PSG
It looks like Die Königsblauen’s squad is set to change as centre-back Thilo Kehrer is on the verge of a move to Paris Saint-Germain. At midday on Sunday (12th August) FC Schalke 04 agreed a transfer with the French champions after weeks of negotiations.
The 21-year-old and the Parisians have put together a contract. The switch will be finalised after medical checks and all contractual details have been gone through.
“In the end we decided to go for the transfer on financial grounds. Particularly, since the player’s contract is due to expire next year” explained sporting director Christian Heidel. “During this period Thilo Kehrer has been loyal to the club”.
“A few weeks ago we had actually agreed a contract extension with Thilo. If this offer from PSG were not to have come through I’m sure he would have gone ahead with the extension, likewise if we had turned the offer down or in the unlikely event something was to stop this deal going ahead”.
