PSG are reportedly keen to sign Leeds United goalkeeper Illan Meslier, which could, in turn, gift both Manchester United and Spurs a timely boost.

Meslier, 21, joined Leeds United in 2019, initially on loan, before making his switch from FC Lorient permanent the following season, in a deal worth £5.85m.

Since joining the Whites, Meslier has gone on to put in some fine performances and even managed to rack up nine clean sheets during his first season in England’s top-flight.

In what has been an excellent breakthrough campaign, Meslier has now seen his name linked with a huge move to the likes of Ligue 1 giants PSG.

It has been widely reported that Mauricio Pochettino would like to sign a new shot-stopper in the summer, with United’s David De Gea and Spurs’ Hugo Lloris two candidates to make the switch.

However, according to a recent report from The National, the Parisians could turn their attentions to Leeds’ Meslier as a cheaper alternative.

It has been claimed that PSG have reservations over the finances involved to sign either De Gea or Lloris, who earn nearly £500,000-per week combined.

Meslier’s current deal runs until 2023, so whilst Leeds United may demand a fair transfer fee, it goes without saying, the young Frenchman’s salary demands would be no where near De Gea’s or Lloris’.
