PSG plans to sell ten footballers to sign Lionel Messi

PSG plans to sell ten footballers to sign Lionel Messi

After the confirmation that Lionel Messi will not continue at Barcelona, ​​everything seems to indicate that the Argentine will become a reinforcement of Paris Saint-Germain (PSG). Although the footballer did not rule that the signing will take place and the French cast are cautious, the main portals anticipate that the offer that reached the forward meets his needs and that therefore this week the agreement would be closed. For this, from the board of the French team they already plan an adaptation of their squad.

PSG has something that Barcelona lacks: a competitive team that can fight for the Champions League.

With Ángel Di María, Keylor Navas, Kylian Mbappé, Marco Verrati, Sergio Ramos and Neymar as some of its great stars, the dressing room is ready to receive La Pulga and thus form a kind of Dream Team that will seek to conquer Europe. However, there is an impediment that the leaders have already detected and that they will seek to avoid.

UEFA is very strict in complying with the Financial Fair Play, which aims to ensure that clubs that belong to business groups do not use extra capital from these funds to close large contracts. For this reason, the newspaper The Athletic revealed that if Messi’s arrival takes place, there will be a purge of the squad.

In total, there will be 10 players who will be transferred or loaned, among which stand out the Senegalese Abdou Diallo and Idrissa Gueye, and the German Thilo Kehrer. All young promises.

In this kind of black list, the presence of the Brazilian nationalized Spanish Rafinha is also surprising, who until 2020 was a Barcelona player, but did not manage to show off with the shirt of the French team.

But without a doubt the two strongest names are that of the Spanish Ander Herrera and that of the Argentine Mauro Icardi, who even scored a goal at the weekend in PSG’s triumph against Troyes for the first day of Ligue 1.

Although the British portal did not publish the 10 surnames, it estimates that there will also be purification in the goalkeeper’s position, since Keylor Navas, Gianluigu Donnarumma, Sergio Rico, Denis Franchi and Alexander Letellier are currently part of the squad. Too many for one place.

It is worth remembering that PSG has already closed the signings in this market for Sergio Ramos, Donnarumma and Georginio Wijnaldum, all as free agents. Although he also paid about USD 6 million for the Portuguese Danilo Pereira and USD 70 million for Achraf Hakimi, from Inter Milan.

In turn, the British site made it clear that Kylian Mbappé is not an option to sell. Despite the fact that the French striker is one of the most coveted players on the planet and has not yet renewed his bond that culminates at the end of the 2021/22 season, the board plans to retain him to seek to win the Champions League this season.

In the press conference he gave at the Camp Nou on Sunday, Messi avoided giving details of what his future will be, although he acknowledged that the Parisian club could be his destiny: “The PSG thing is a possibility, but at this point I have nothing arranged with nobody. It is true that I had several calls, because several clubs were interested, but at this time there is nothing closed.

At the same time, regarding the photo that was taken with the PSG figures during their vacations, the Rosario star said: “The photo with the PSG players was bullshit. We had already talked about getting together on vacation. We ate a barbecue and shared a nice moment. Everyone told me to go to Paris, but it was a coincidence. There is nothing weird, nothing behind. It was a photo of a group of friends who shared a vacation in Ibiza ”.

Meanwhile, in the streets of Paris you can already breathe Messi-mania. This was made clear by the huge group of fans who in the afternoon of Sunday moved to the gates of the small Le Bourget airport, located on the outskirts of the city, with the aim of accompanying the arrival of the captain of the national team. Argentina. However, Leo is still in Barcelona and it is not yet confirmed that he will travel to France as he continues to analyze PSG’s offer.

From the French cast they understand that an economic effort to close the hiring of the Rosario will be worth it. Virgile Caillet, general delegate of the French Federation of Sports and Leisure Industries (Fifas) estimated that the striker could achieve the sale of “200 to 300,000 more shirts.” In dialogue with the AFP news agency, he explained: “It may be paradoxical due to his age (34 years), but Messi represents the future of PSG, both financially and in sport.”

Currently, the Parisian club, which boasts of being the new generation, is one of the 50 most valued sports teams in the world, according to Forbes, behind Real Madrid, Barça, Bayern Munich and Manchester City, among others. But the arrival of Rosario could change everything, even for Ligue 1 that could have an increase in international television rights (about 80 million euros per year). (INFOBAE)
