Mercato: A loan to strengthen the defense of PSG this winter?

Stuck by financial fair play like last summer, PSG may have to settle for the arrival of a central defender on loan during the winter transfer window according to L’Equipe.

The central defender’s file had stirred up the whole summer of PSG, to finally lead to nothing since Inter Milan never wanted the Parisians’ No. 1 target Milan Skriniar while the other leads did not come to fruition, Paris judging for example the requests of Monaco for Disasi too important. This quest has finally been pushed back to winter, but it doesn’t look much easier than last summer, if not even more complicated, and not only because Skriniar has a very good chance of extending to the winter. ‘Inter Milano.

According to L’Equipe, it is PSG’s lack of available money that could well compromise this possible arrival in a sector where Danilo found himself evolving very regularly during the first part of the season. The Parisian club is indeed embarrassed by financial fair play, an old sea serpent that reappeared during the summer when UEFA imposed a fine of €65m on the Parisian club, including €55m suspended, for not – compliance with the club control system of the European body. Paris has had three seasons with heavy losses (€125m in 2019/2020, €224m in 2020/2021 and even €370m in 2021/2022) and is now paying the price.

With this in mind and citing sources within the club, L’Equipe specifies that PSG would rather hope to arrive on loan this winter in this position of central defender. In other words, and even if the sports newspaper does not advance on this point, a high-caliber player seems very unlikely via this bias even if an unexpected sale of players could give more leeway to the capital club. Problem no member of the squad seems able to make much money in the short term, only Navas being available but with a rather low rating.

The switch to a four-man defense operated by Christophe Galtier from October could also put an end to this quest for one more central defender since PSG can count on Marquinhos, Kimpembe and Sergio Ramos plus two very good alternative solutions. with Danilo and Mukiele.
