Cameroon captain Choupo-Moting rejects PSG

Cameroon captain Eric-Maxim Choupo-Moting is reported to have rejected an offer from Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint Germain.

The club’s Sporting Director Leonardo only offered the player a 12-month deal although he had hoped for a long-term contract, according to French news outlet RMC Sports.

It’s believed the Indomitable Lions forward was looking towards signing a two-year deal but Les Parisiens offer was far from being convincing to the player.

The 31-year-old has been a free agent since his departure from the French top-flight champions in August where he made over thirty appearances after surprise his arrival in August 2018.

According to various news outlets in France, Lazio are among the front-runners to secure the former Schalke 04 star, with the lure of regular game-time and a long-term contract.

Choupo-Moting played a stirring role as PSG reached their first semi-final in 25 years during last year’s UEFA Champions League. He came off the bench and scored a stoppage-time goal to complete a comeback against Atlanta in the last-eight.

The Cameroon international won back-to-back league titles, the French Cup (2019/2020), Coupe de la Ligue (2019/2020) and finished runners-up of the UEFA Champions League during his fruitful stint.
