PSG willing to let Manchester United & Tottenham transfer target leave

Paris Saint-Germain may be willing to allow goalkeeper Salvatore Sirigu to leave the Parc des Princes during the January transfer window, with Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur both linked to the player.

The Italian stopper—despite impressing last term—was humiliatingly replaced between the sticks by new arrival Kevin Trapp during the summer, and despite aspirations to the contrary, has been unable to win back his place.

Trapp was guilty for a series of errors as Paris dropped points against Bordeaux earlier in the season, and while it looked as though Laurent Blanc may turn back to Sirigu, Trapp kept his place and has improved dramatically since.

Sirigu is concerned that he will lose his place in the Italy squad for Euro 2016 if he cannot secure first-team football ahead of the tournament, and Sport24 [via Le 10 Sport], report that PSG may finally be willing to offload him.

According to Corriere dello Sport [again via the French source], AC Milan are understood to be keen on the player as an alternative to current No. 1—16-year-old Gianluigi Donnarumma—while Tottenham Hotspur were heavily linked to Sirigu during the summer as a potential replacement for Hugo Lloris should the France skipper leave for Manchester United, as had been mooted during the summer.

Similarly, United themselves had been linked to the Italian stopper in the case of David De Gea’s exit for Real Madrid.
