In today’s edition, The Team reminds that the PSG wishes to carry out a massive degreasing of its workforce. Thus, the next departure fromAlphonse Areola at West Ham against a sum of 9 or 12M€ (according to sources) “must contribute to the major renewal of the workforce desired by management. » The French international should sign a five-year contract with the London club. His loan from Hammers for the 2021-2022 financial year included an option of €9 million, but the English leaders would not have lifted it before the deadline, “hence a higher price which could be 12M€. » The departure of the 29-year-old porter should be the first of the great degreasing hoped for by the Parisian board. “No less than ten departures are expected. But to change the workforce in depth and strengthen it, sales are necessary. »

always according to The TeamPSG planned a recruitment budget of €80m before the extension of Kylian Mbappe. And part of this sum has already been spent to exercise the purchase option of Nuno Mendes (35M€). Thereby, “It is therefore imperative to multiply the disposals. » In addition toAlphonse Areolaother players have exit vouchers for this summer transfer window: Thilo Kehrer, Abdou Diallo, Sergio Rico, Idrissa Gueye or Arnaud Kalimuendo. Regarding the last city, it arouses the interest of many Italian clubs (Sassuolo, Bologna, Atalanta, Torino). Moreover, the PSG would look favorably on the departures of Leandro Paredes, Ander Herrera and Mauro Icardibut these players have recently expressed their desire to continue with the Rouge & Bleu and their salary is an obstacle for potential buyers.

The sports daily also recalls that the striker of the Women’s PSG, Marie Antoinette Katoto, could end the suspense around his future this Monday. As a reminder, his contract with his training club ends on June 30. And “according to his entourage, the striker of The french team will say today if she extends with the Parisian club or if she leaves, a priori at OL, the only club likely to welcome him. » Despite recent criticism of his management in recent weeks, Titi seemed to be getting closer to an extension with the Rouge & Bleu. ” The changes to come within the women’s section go in the direction of a reorganization desired by the player “ensures THE. But financial positions still do not match expectations and “Discussions seemed to have stalled yesterday. » Something to always hope for OLwhich has sufficient financial manna to accommodate Marie Antoinette Katoto. Thereby, “No agreement seemed definitively signed last night, nor with OL nor with the PSG »concludes the sports daily.

On his side, The Parisian wonders what the offensive solutions of the PSG behind the trio Messi-Neymar-Mbappe. Indeed, with the departure ofAngel Di Maria and the undesirables who must find a way out, the club of the capital will have to strengthen in the offensive sector. Indeed, these three attackers currently seem untouchable in the starting lineup and replacements are scarce. Whether Angel Di Maria was the most used striker outside the “MNM”, the other offensives were satisfied with crumbs during the 2021-2022 financial year: Mauro Icardi (1.307 minutes) and Julian Draxler (861 minutes). But, El Fideo will no longer be a player PSG in a few days and the last two mentioned will not be retained by the Parisian management in the event of satisfactory offers. However, their low performance as well as their substantial salary will complicate the task ofAntero Henriquein charge of sales PSG.

But, the Rouge & Bleu can benefit from the good performances of Pablo Sarabia (Sporting CP) and Arnaud Kalimuendo (RC Lens) to hope to pick up some cash. Despite good loans, both players “are not guaranteed to get a place” in the Paris workforce. For the Spanish international, the PSG Converse with Atletico de Madrid for a loan with option while the Titi is coveted by many clubs. The striker trained at the club could thus make the “cost of the need to sell of his club”even though Luis Campos likes his profile. the PSG will also need renewal in attack, especially behind the “MNM”. In recent days, the champions of France have been associated with Gianluca Scamacca (23 years old, Sassuolo) and Hugo Ekitike (20 years old, Stade de Reims), “both valued at around forty million euros by their club. »

In the transfer window, the Ile-de-France daily recalls that xavi simonswhose contract ends on June 30, will extend to PSG before being loaned to PSV Eindhoven in order to obtain playing time. For its part, Alphonse Areola will definitely leave his training club. After a loan to West Hamthe 29-year-old doorman will definitely commit to the Hammerswhich had a purchase option of €12 million, according to LP. “His transfer will be finalized on Monday or Tuesday. »
