PSG ready to sack sporting director over failed De Jong move

Serie A By: Ikponmwosa Umweni | 25/01/2019

Paris Saint-Germain has reportedly began to considering sacking sporting director Antero Henrique over he failed to bring Frenkie de Jong to Parc des Princes

The 51-year-old Portuguese has been entrusted with bringing high-profile names to Ligue 1, but it appears that a failed transfer could lead to former Porto sporting director being sacked by the French giants.

According to ESPN claiming that PSG officials are unhappy that the club lost out Holland international to La Liga league leaders Barcelona.

The Catalan giants announced a deal for 21-year-old Ajax midfielder earlier this week, and it has allegedly resulted in question marks emerging over the future of Henrique.

De Jong has made just 66 appearances for Ajax and has five Netherlands caps to his name, but his development and influential role in both exciting teams left Barcelona with no real choice but to do all they could to win the battle to sign him.

The report also claims that Adrien Rabiot's probable exit from the club in one of the next two transfer windows has also added to their disappointment.
