Nine players for 200 million, the PSG unleashed in the transfer window?

In its edition of the day, Le Parisien takes stock of the PSG transfer window. Once again, Leonardo’s objective will be to sell the undesirables.

Kylian Mbappé is the hottest file of the summer transfer window at Paris Saint-Germain, that’s for sure. On the other hand, the French striker is not the only concern of Leonardo and the leaders of PSG. In its edition of the day, Le Parisien reveals that undesirables haunt the nights of the Brazilian sports director just as much. It must be said that for several months, Qatar has been putting pressure on Leonardo on the file of players for sale. In the coming weeks, the former boss of the AC Milan transfer window will mainly be judged on his ability to find exit doors for the less used players, despite the comfortable salaries they enjoy at Paris Saint-Germain.

Mauro Icardi at half price, who wants it?

And the list is long since according to the regional daily, it is no less than nine players that Leonardo will try to send in order to lighten the finances of PSG. With Mauro Icardi in the first place. The former captain of Inter Milan has seen his value plummet, and selling him for 28 million euros is the goal that Paris SG has set. A first sale which is eagerly awaited, while Le Parisien claims that the capital club can in theory recover up to 200 million euros if it manages to sell all its players well.

A midfielder to degrease

The junk that could bring the biggest payoff to PSG’s finances is undeniably Leandro Paredes. Adored by the stars of the locker room, starting with Neymar and Lionel Messi, the former midfielder of Roma and Zenit Saint Petersburg is much less loved by Leonardo, who does not understand how Antero Henrique could offer him the salary of a rockstar. Due to his emoluments, his irregularity and his repeated physical glitches, Leandro Paredes is pushed towards the exit. Courted by Roma, he could bring in nearly 20 million euros for PSG, a significant sum for the finances of the Parisian club. In midfield, three other elements will not be retained: Julian Draxlercourted in Germany (Hertha Berlin) or even at Sevilla FC but who is in no hurry to find a base when he and his wife like Parisian life, as well asEric-Junior Dina-Ebimbe, which could earn him around 5 million euros at PSG. Recruited freely from Liverpool at the end of the summer transfer window, Georginio Wijnaldum is the subject of a situation which will be closely monitored after a first season not far from being catastrophic under the colors of Paris.

Sarabia will bring big money to PSG

Substitute but not undesirable 100%, Abdou Diallo does not yet know what his future will hold. It will largely depend on the identity of the future PSG coach. Indeed, the former AS Monaco and Borussia Dortmund defender is waiting to find out who will be in charge of Paris Saint-Germain next season before making a decision on his future. PSG has a clearer opinion on the situation of Layvin Kurzawa, clearly invited to take the door when he is not even the third choice in a position where PSG has Nuno Mendes, Juan Bernat and Abdou Diallo. On loan this season, respectively to Sporting Portugal and West Ham, Pablo Sarabia and Alphonse Areola should not return to Paris Saint-Germain. The Spaniard could bring more than his purchase price which was 18 million euros and will allow the capital club to make a deal. As for the second, the vagueness reigns over the amount of his future transfer and the way in which his salary will be taken care of next season.
