While Leonardo would have kept a keen eye on Hakim Ziyech for a possible transfer to PSG, the Ajax Amsterdam winger will join Chelsea next summer with whom the bases of an agreement had already been established since December.
In January, Soccer Link revealed that Leonardo would have initiated the first contacts with the agent of Hakim Ziyech on the sidelines of a possible transfer to PSG of the star of theAjax Amsterdam. However, the sports director of the PSG did not succeed, since Chelsea formalized Thursday an agreement withAjax for the transfer of Ziyech, for an amount of € 45M. And although the PSG took part in the Moroccan signature race during the winter transfer window, the dice already seemed to be thrown at that time.
A predefined agreement since December between Ajax and Chelsea for Ziyech?
This Friday, The Athletic back on the soap Hakim Ziyech and on the long-standing interest of Chelsea for the wingmanAjax Amsterdam. According to the British media, the Boy Scouts Blues oversee the Moroccan’s services for three years now. Ziyech would not even have left his suitcases Chelsea twice in the last transfer window. The recruitment ban put in place by FIFA last summer and the will of theAjax Amsterdam this winter to rely on the services of Ziyech for the Europa League and the Dutch championship until the end of the season prevented Chelsea to achieve its goals sooner. Sources close to the matter revealed to The Athletic that the basis for an agreement between the two clubs was laid out last December. Chelsea reopened discussions withAjax earlier this week to finalize the operation. The PSG therefore had no chance for Hakim Ziyech.
