PSG’s new sports policy seems clear. Christophe Galtier and Luis Campos think about the club’s strategy in close collaboration with often the same desires. However, a subject divides them: the future of Arnaud Kalimuendo within the Parisian club.
In two PSG matches in Japan, he is the Parisians’ top scorer. No, it’s not Kylian Mbappé, not even Lionel Messi. This is Arnaud Kalimuendo. The 20-year-old player, pure product of the Parisian formation, is having fun in the land of the Rising Sun. He scored a goal against the Kawasaki Frontale, another this Saturday against the Urawa Red Diamonds. Performances that reassure observers for a young man who has not really had a chance at PSG in the past. After three small matches with the Parisians, he had to be loaned to Lens for the last two seasons.
Galtier wants to use Kalimuendo, Campos wants to sell him
And, among the Sang et Or, Kalimuendo showed a lot of potential. Seven goals in Ligue 1 the first season, twelve during the last exercise. Enough to make a name for yourself in France and elsewhere in Europe. The young Parisian titi now appears to be an interesting market value, especially since the horizon is blocked in Paris with an already very extensive line of attack. For Luis Campos, Kalimuendo can be sold this summer and bring in up to 25 million euros in the transfer window according to estimates. But, the old accomplice of Campos, Christophe Galtier, does not agree on this point.

Indeed, according to journalist Ben Jacobs, the subject Kalimuendo divides the Galtier-Campos duo while Leeds United arrives in force on the file. ” Kalimuendo scored in pre-season against Urawa Reds. Leeds are pushing but Galtier has been very impressed with him since his arrival and sees huge potential. Campos is the one open to a sale but Galtier would prefer he stay “, he posted on Twitter. In view of his last performances with PSG, it is legitimate that Kalimuendo can claim to continue the adventure in the capital and Christophe Galtier is ready to make room for him. But, the financial imperatives for the Campos transfer window may well hinder this plan and bring discord within the Galtier-Campos couple.
