Direct narrations -> indirect narrations

He said, "she will be on Paris on Monday."

-> He said that she would be on Paris on Monday.

 

When we convert direct narrations to indirect narrations, we should agree tenses with verbs in main clauses. And then, if the verbs are 'would', 'could' and 'might' for politeness or lower possibility, etc in dependent clauses, what verbs should we use for indirect narrations?

 

He said, "she would be on Paris on Monday."

-> He said that she would be on Paris on Monday. or

-> He said that she would have been on Paris on Monday.

 

Thank you a million as usual and sorry about taking your time a lot.
