Paris Saint-Germain have yet to recruit any reinforcements, but they have arguably already achieved their biggest coup. By extending Kylian Mbappé’s contract until 2025, the Rouge-et-Bleu hit hard since their striker seemed promised to Real Madrid. A few days later, Paris completed another crucial file: the final transfer of Portuguese Nuno Mendes against 35 M€.
Place now in the transfer window. Luis Campos has not yet been formalized, but the Lusitano is already behind the scenes. Moreover, several tracks have recently leaked in the press. Yesterday, for example, the Ile-de-France interest in striker Gianluca Scamacca (Sassuolo) and central defender Milan Skriniar (Inter) was confirmed. So many names to which must be added the possible successors of Mauricio Pochettino.
Sell to increase the transfer window budget
But how much money will Paris have to carry out its recruitment campaign? In its columns, The Team reveals that the Rouge-et-Bleu will have an envelope of 80 M €. But beware, from this budget, you must already subtract the €35 million spent for Nuno Mendes. On paper, there is therefore €45 million left. An amount that does not meet the expectations of a club that has promised a revolution.
Especially since the newspaper adds that Luis Campos is also targeting Lille Sven Botman (whom he had recruited for the Dogues), a midfielder to compensate for the failure Tchouameni and the Lyon side Malo Gusto. In short, so many targets that will not be sold off. Unsurprisingly, PSG will therefore have to force one or more undesirables to hope to inflate its budget. Or sacrifice the promising Kalimuendo, loaned to Lens. Case to follow.
