    Rumours that Leonardo, ex Brazil midfielder, AC Milan manager and sporting director at PSG came to watch McCallum last night and we rested him for the league.

    Fucking PSG after one of ours. Mental.

    I would have thought an elite club like PSG would have done more due diligence than that

    Perhaps the owner of PSG is looking to buy a hard up club with no ground.

    Would have thought if they were scouting him they would have seen the knock he took last game and checked if he was going to be playing

    Where's this rumour come from?

    Absolutely no idea, saw it on twitter myself. Probably bollocks but given our top six are keeping tabs on him it wouldn't surprise me all of Europe's elite know of him.

    What seems more plausible is that he went to West Brom for someone like Nathan Ferguson who’s refusing a new contract at WBA and then went to a game in the area later on

    We’re talking PSG here not Nuneaton. They would have done due diligence

    Again, I'm not trying to doubt that they wouldn't have. Funny if they did though. Interest in McCallum WOULD however seem plausible given competitors.

    The Liverpool interest has been reported by 90min which is a fan site. I had a look at their articles specifically one from that author and it’s just full of young players being linked to much bigger clubs as if agents are contacting him to publish stuff

    There is no chance that the sporting director is involved in a transfer at this level.

    I doubt even that would happen. For development purposes he would assign a head of player development an overall budget who would then obtain reports from scouts and buy players that he thinks would impact his KPI's like progressing into the first team or receiving a high resale value. Leonardo would then just judge the player development guy on those metrics.

    Update: TalkSport reported last night he was in front of their commentators on the game. Talksport - the home of legitimate transfer rumours!

    I had to listen via talk sport last night and can confirm they said Leonardo, along with a dozen or so others, were there to watch McCallum.
    The presenters were live from st Andrew's but the commentary was of the Newcastle game. They spent nearly all of the half time break talking about McCallum, said hes very highly rated and that a lot of the big clubs are after him.

    I am willing to swap McCallum for one of these, As long as PSG pay the wages.

    Mbappé
    Verratti
    Thiago Silva
    Neymar
    Di María
    Herrera
    Julian Draxler
    Cavani
    Thomas Meunier

    But they have to be prepared to not get in the starting 11.

    Their attitudes are miles apart though. Can't imagine Neymar recovering from two ACL tears the way Jones has.
