PSG has to get rid of players

PSG is facing a difficult situation since it cannot sign players in this winter market, in fact, the club’s sports management does not contemplate the arrival of any player and, on the contrary, works to get rid of some players.

Everything is due to UEFA’s Fair Play, the club had already received a penalty of 65 million euros in the summer and now runs the risk of receiving a fine again due to the high salary burden.

The Parisian club is obliged to reduce wages by 30% with the new Fair Play that comes into force from next season.

As L’Équipe indicates, the task is not easy since PSG has already exhausted the loan limit imposed by FIFA. In the summer, the club loaned Wijnaldum to Roma, Icardi to Galatasaray, Draxler to Benfica, Diallo to Leipzig, Kurzawa to Fulham, Ander Herrera to Athletic, Dagba to Strasbourg and Paredes to Juventus.

The club is therefore working on selling some players to free up vacancies in the team and decrease the salary burden.

The first player to be sold was Pablo Sarabia, who has been transferred to Wolverhampton because the boss of The Wolves, Lopetegui, insisted on signing him.

However, the PSG coach Galtier has admitted that they will try to cover his loss and will look for a new player to arrive in Paris, however, it is unlikely that this will happen.

The club is also looking to place Keylor Navas in this transfer market. The Costa Rican goalkeeper has only played one game this season, and it doesn’t look like he’s going to take Donnarumma’s job.

The sale of Navas is complicated by the fact that the player has a high salary, which not many clubs can afford at the moment.
