Everton forward, Richarlison has been linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain.
The French professional footballer became PSG’s favorite as Kylian Mbappe is understood to be considering leaving the Ligue giants to further his career elsewhere.
Naija News learnt that PSG has contacted Richarlison’s representatives about a possible move for the 24-year-old as Neymar believes his fellow compatriot has the qualities to play for Mauricio Pochettino’s side.
Mbappe’s contract elapses in less than a year from now and the youngster is yet to agree on a contract extension with PSG. Pochettino could be forced to sell him this summer transfer window.
Richarlison on the other side has been continuously linked with an exit from Goodison Park this summer. It could be recalled that the forward joined Everton from Watford in 2018.
Meanwhile, PSG’s new signing, Lionel Messi has become the first player in the world to get fan tokens.
Naija News reports that a statement on the club’s website noted that Messi’s transfer included a payment in cryptocurrency fan tokens.
The statement read, “In a world-first for such a high-profile signing, Leo Messi received a large number of ‘$PSG Fan Tokens’.
“The inclusion of the $PSG Fan Tokens in the player’s welcome package instantly ties him with millions of Paris Saint-Germain fans around the world. The move further positions Paris Saint-Germain as one of the most innovative and avant-garde sports franchises in the world.
“Token implementation comes as a great illustration of the way the Club is constantly finding ways to increase and diversify its revenue streams to continue developing as a global brand.
“In 2018, Paris Saint-Germain made a pioneering step into the world of blockchain, becoming the first sports franchise to partner with Socios.com. Since then, Paris Saint-Germain and Socios.com have been working side by side to capitalize on this new and unique way to connect the Club with the Fans, and the best is yet to come. For millions of PSG supporters around the world, Fan Tokens have become a creative way to engage with the Rouge & Bleu.”
