But according to Bruno Salomon, it was the Brazilian who demanded and obtained that nothing be done in terms of communication concerning his obviously negotiated departure. ” On Leo, I admit that I was surprised that the club did not communicate on his departure (a little word about…). According to concordant sources, it was at the request of the person concerned that the PSG did not communicate “Explained the journalist from France Bleu Paris, who inquired with the club of the capital.
