French publication Le Parisien reports that Paris Saint-Germain wants to sack 11 players as new coach Christophe Galtier aims to downsize the squad. These include some high-income stars.
For Paris Saint-Germain, the shadow of being knocked out of the Champions League at the start of last season still lingers. Now the club has undergone a management change, Mauricio Pochettino has quit, and Gaultier has officially become the head coach of the Paris team. The direction of the club has also changed.
The Ligue 1 champions recently confirmed their second signing of striker Hugo Ekitik from the Stade Reims. In addition, with Mbappé’s continued “retention” and the high salaries of Neymar and Messi, the club hopes to ease some financial burdens before the new season. This is one of the reasons why Paris Saint-Germain decided to sack the player.
Of course, there are plenty of names on the list that fans don’t want to see. The first name on Paris Saint-Germain’s 11 transferable players list is Argentine striker Mauro Icardi, and Wijnalden, who joined last season, has also been included in the transfer list.
Some high-paid players, including Georginio Wijnaldum, Mauro Icardi, and midfielder Danilo Pereira, have been put on the club’s transfer list. Other players on the roster include Layvin Kurzawa, Abdou Diallo, Thilo Kehrer, Leandro Paredes, Idrissa Gueye and Ander Herrera, Eric Junior Dina Ebimbe, and Julian Draxler.
Paris Saint-Germain wants to profit from players they don’t think they need. In addition to firing so many players, they also need to replenish players appropriately. Rumor has it they will be eyeing Ferland Mendy, striker Gianluca Scamacca and defender Milan Škriniar.
