Although he won Ligue 1 several dates in advance, the walk of Paris Saint Germain was far from being the expected by losing the French Super Cup and being quickly eliminated in the French Cup and the Champions League, the great goal of the institution for several years. For example, for this season, the capital team brought in players of the stature of Achraf Hakimi, Danilo Pereira, Nuno Mendes, Lionel Messi, Gianluigi Donnarumma, Georginio Wijnaldum and Sergio Ramos.

As reported L’Equipethe leaders have in mind “reorganize template” freeing salary space and making cash with the sale of some of his figures. The newspaper points to four names: Julian Draxler, Leandro Paredes, Layvin Kurzawa and Thilo Kehrer.

Despite extending his contract until 2024 last year, the German soccer player today is not a priority for Mauricio Pochettino as a result of the wide variety of names on offense (Neymar, Lionel Messi, Mbappé, Ángel Di María or Mauro Icardi, for example). The aforementioned medium maintains that the winger, who arrived in January 2017 in exchange for 36 million euros from Wolfsburg, is a footballer who “PSG has been trying for more than two years to get him to leavebut he has come across a player with little motivation to leave the capital, where he feels so good”.

Currently in full recovery from a meniscus operation (early April), he is closely followed by teams like Hertha Berlin, Borussia Dortmund, Bayer Leverkusen and Sevilla. He participated in 22 games, in which he scored two goals and provided two assists.

A similar case is that of Leandro Paredes, who is out of the courts as a result of pubalgia. Although in the Argentine team he is an immovable piece for Lionel Scaloni, in France he usually alternates and is not a priority for the DT. The club believes that it is a good opportunity to sell him and recoup some of the 47 million they spent in the winter of 2019 to get him out of Zenit Russia. An important fact is that his link expires in mid-2023.

The one who emerged from the Boca Juniors youth academy, who has an important weight within the squad as a result of his links with Neymar and Lionel Messi, would not be sure of leaving in this transfer window. As a result of his good progress in Rome and Empoli, he has a good poster in Serie A and one of the main interested in his services is Inter. He has played 22 games, with one goal and two goal passes.

Layvin Kurzawa was ostracized after refusing to go out last European summer. The 29-year-old left back has only featured for 9 minutes in the Champions Trophy final so far this season. The footballer, who will have to continue if he wants to wear the France team shirt again (he participated in three games), appears in the portfolio of Lyon and some Turkish clubs, but his dream is to land in the Premier League.

The center or right side Thilo Kehrer He never managed to settle since his arrival in 2018 (37 million at Schalke 04) and was marked by his mistake in the 2018/19 Champions League round of 16 against Manchester United. His market seems to be in his native country or England. He has a contract until June 2023 and in the current season he played 31 games and scored two goals.

The Parisienmeanwhile, adds another name of weight to this list: Mauro Icardi. The Argentine striker, although he began his path at PSG with an auspicious letter of introduction, his present one changed radically. Today he is a substitute for the dream trident Messi-Neymar-Mbappé and product of injuries and personal problems the institution would not see with bad eyes selling it in the next transfer window even if he has two more years on his contract. He currently has 30 games, with 5 goals.

In recent days the international press has also focused on another important name within the Argentine team. Is about Angel Di Mariawho despite being the highest historical assistant of Paris Saint Germain did not receive any type of offer to renew his contractwhich ends in a few weeks.

The 34-year-old footballer, with successful spells at Benfica and Real Madrid, in his seven years at PSG won 18 titles (four Ligue 1, five French Cups, four League Cups and five French Super Cups) and has played 27 games, in which he contributed three goals and provided seven goal passes.

The one who has already moved chips to hire him is Juventus from Italy, a team that is willing to offer him a short contract to later be able to retire in Rosario Central. There is even talk of a salary that would be around 7 million euros.
