Failing to win both Champions League and Ligue 1 last season, Paris Saint-Germain will look forward to dictating this summer’s transfer market and build a team that could go all the way in Europe’s premier club competition next season.
PSG sacked Thomas Tuchel last Christmas to appoint Mauricio Pochettino and he is yet to prove himself with the Parisian side. Neymar has already signed another contract with PSG which keeps him in Paris till 2026. PSG has focussed all its energy in the recent months working on new contracts for Mbappe and Neymar both of whose contracts were getting over in 2022.
Talking about Mbappe to L’Equipe, PSG Owner Nasser Al-Khelaifi said “I will be clear. Mbappe is going to stay in Paris. We will never sell him and he will never leave on a free [transfer]. Mbappe has everything he needs in Paris. Where can he go? What club, in terms of ambition, can compete with PSG today? All I can say is that things are going well, and I hope we can reach an agreement [on a new contract]. This is Paris, this is his country. He has a mission, not only to play football but to promote Ligue 1, his country, and his capital.” That was some blow to Real Madrid’s endeavors to lure in the French sensation.
Possible Signings this Summer
With Donnarumma’s contract with AC Milan ending this summer, PSG is set to make a move on him. Sky Sport Italia has also reported that PSG already has a deal in place for the Italian goalkeeper which could see him earning 60 million euros across the next 5 seasons.
Gini was supposed to be Barcelona’s biggest midfield bargain this transfer window and Ronald Koeman was also depending on the same. But recent updates suggest that PSG has beaten Barca to acquire Wijnaldum’s services. The Dutch international will surely bolster their midfield.
La Gazzetta dello Sport recently suggested that PSG are in advanced talks with Inter Milan to secure Achraf for a whopping 60 million euros. The Serie A champions have lately shown interest in cashing in on the in-form wing-back to balance their books.
