PSG to bid for Real Betis fullback Emerson - via Barcelona

PSG are preparing a bid for Real Betis fullback Emerson Royal.

Emerson is on a two-season loan at Betis from Barcelona and Sport says PSG chief Leonardo is keen.

PSG are willing to offer €25m for the Brazilian, with Betis also due a percentage of any sell-on fee.

Such a deal would still represent a bumper profit for Barca, which coughed up €12m to Atletico Mineiro for Emerson 18 months ago.

Emerson has hopes of making it at Barca, though the presence of Sergino Dest and Sergi Roberto could be enough to convince him about a move to Paris.
