Fabrizio Romano shares what Galtier said as Leeds United submit Arnaud Kalimuendo bid
Christophe Galtier has remained coy over the future of Leeds United target Arnaud Kalimuendo, leaving the door open for his exit.
According to Fabrizio Romano, the Paris St. Germain manager claims that he will wait and see what the striker decides with there being interest in his services.
Tutto Mercato Web reported on July 15 that the Ligue 1 champions are currently evaluating the £17million bid that Leeds have made to sign the 21-year-old this summer.
Via Twitter, Romano quoted Galtier as saying, “Kalimuendo’s future? I’m more than happy with him, he’s doing great but then… there’s the market. We’ll see club and player’s decision”.
There is hope
No manager openly says that a player is leaving and they tend to say that they’re happy with him and put the ball in the player’s court.

The fact that he did not say that Kalimuendo is not up for sale suggests that they’re considering letting him go and will probably cash in if he gives them the green signal.
PSG view him as one for the future, but given their strategy of signing big-name players, he may never get his chance to spearhead the attack.
Even if they realistically see him as a game changer in the future, they can include a buy-back clause and sanction his exit to Leeds.
An offer is already on the table so Leeds have clearly indicated their intentions of securing his services.
It’s now down to Kalimuendo to tell PSG he wants to move to Elland Road and that should get things done.
