Paris Saint-Germain sporting director Leonardo has admitted the French club may have “made a mistake” in allowing Thiago Silva to leave and join Chelsea as a free agent.
“At one moment, we have to say ‘what are we going to do.’ We spoke clearly with them… It was a moment where we could not give them exactly what they wanted,” Leonardo is quoted as saying by Get French Football News.
“It was a financial and generational problem. It was the moment to count on Marquinhos and Kimpembe. The decisions were difficult to take. Aside from that, we could have made a mistake.”
