With the signing of Gianluigi Donnarumma last summer, PSG added an additional goalkeeper to an already very rich squad in this position.
Paris Saint-Germain currently has Keylor Navas, Gianluigi Donnarumma, Sergio Rico, Denis Franchi and Alexandre Letellier as goalkeeper. In other words, the club in the capital has at least one or two goalkeepers too many, not counting the young people of the club. In this sense, one of the winter objectives of the PSG is to degrease in this position. For reasons of the UEFA Champions League list (player trained in France), Alexandre Letellier is not pushed towards the exit. On the other hand, Sergio Rico is no longer really in the odor of sanctity at Camp des Loges. A time announced in the viewfinder of Saint-Etienne, the ex-goalkeeper of Seville will not rebound at ASSE, which obtained the loan of Paul Bernardoni from Angers.

Nevertheless, the departure of Sergio Rico is still relevant for Paris Saint-Germain. The goalkeeper of PSG was surveyed by Clermont, who seeks to strengthen in this position. But the Spanish goalkeeper politely declined the invitation. It is finally in La Liga that Sergio Rico could bounce back, according to the information obtained by Matteo Moretto, journalist of Sky Sport. According to the media, contact has been established between Paris Saint-Germain and Mallorca, current 15th in Liga. The objective of the Spanish club is to obtain the loan of Sergio Rico without an option to buy with partial payment of the salary by PSG. A deal that will not delight Paris Saint-Germain more than that, which could nevertheless accept for lack of anything better in order to reduce its payroll to a minimum. It is an operation of this type which had been concluded a few days ago with Real Sociedad for the departure of Rafinha. This could therefore be the case this time around with Sergio Rico, Keylor Navas’ lining last season and relegated to the role of third goalkeeper by the arrival of Gianluigi Donnarumma from AC Milan six months ago.
