Reports: PSG Chasing Two Barca Superstars

French giants Paris Saint-Germain are seemingly not done with their transfer business, and are reportedly chasing two FC Barcelona superstars before the window closes.

The Ligue 1 champions are understood to be desperate to sign another midfielder before the French window closes on 31 August.

New coach Thomas Tuchel has tried to lure the likes of Paul Pogba, N'Golo Kante and Miralem Pjanic to PSG in this window, but no move materialised.

According to Spanish publication Sport, though, Les Parisiens are now trying their luck with Sergio Busquets and Ivan Rakitic.

The former seems destined to stay at the Camp Nou, however, and has reportedly already agreed to an improved contract, with his current deal expiring in 2021. Barca are said to be keen to upgrade his contract in order to fend off any interest from PSG.

Rakitic, meanwhile, signed a new deal, also expiring in 2021, with the Catalan club just last year. However, his performances at the 2018 FIFA World Cup have put him on the radar of Europe's top clubs, and the French side is sounding out the possibility of securing his services.

Unlike Busquets and despite his new contract, Rakitic is not among Barca’s highest-paid players, and the Blaugrana are reportedly not keen on improving his salary, which could allow PSG to turn his head with a big-money offer.

The Catalan giants, though, have confirmed that any interested party will have to pay the Croatian's €125 million (R2.12 billion) release clause if they want to secure his signature.
