According to information provided by L’Equipe a week ago, PSG is very attentive to Lucas Paqueta’s performance with OL.
Author of a thunderous start to the season, the Brazilian had a less prosperous period at Olympique Lyonnais. But obviously, Lucas Paqueta came back more motivated than ever at the start of 2022. Against PSG on Sunday night, the former AC Milan playmaker had a very good match punctuated by a nice goal with his foot right. Since the start of the season, Lucas Paqueta’s performance has not gone unnoticed by European recruiters. Sporting director of Paris Saint-Germain, Leonardo knows Paqueta well after recruiting him to AC Milan a few years ago. And if there are not yet discussions between PSG and OL, the Parisian club is considering making an offer to Lyon to recruit Lucas Paqueta next summer.

Which would be a mistake according to Pierre Ménès, who estimated in his column “Face à Pierrot” that Paris Saint-Germain did not need one more star in its cast, although the talent of Lucas Paqueta is not not questioned. “PSG, there we see that they are on Paqueta. But what need does PSG have to take Paqueta? While you already have Neymar, Messi, Di Maria. You can only play with forwards. It’s a bit of the bling-bling problem. You want glitter. At some point, PSG will have to recruit darker, more defensive players and that may be a problem with the functioning of the club ” estimated Pierre Ménès, before concluding. “There are workforce building concerns, because it’s too bling-bling. There are players who should be at PSG and who are not because they are not bling-bling enough. The typical example is Seko Fofana. Seko Fofana at the moment, he devours all circles of PSG on his own “ underlined Pierre Ménès, who preferred for example that Paris Saint-Germain recruit the midfielder of RC Lens rather than Lucas Paqueta.
