Mercato: the d

Leonardo is in trouble in Paris.

Paris Saint-Germain must absolutely sell. In difficulty because of the losses linked to the coronavirus pandemic, estimated at 250 million euros, the club in the capital is obliged to downsize its plethora of staff. The relative good news is that the candidates to leave are already identified.

Rafinha and Rico are going to leave

The first who will leave the ship is Rafinha. Very little used by Mauricio Pochettino, the Brazilian midfielder has never managed to win Paris. The departure of Thomas Tuchel, a few months after his arrival, hurt him enormously, since he failed to convince the successor of the German manager. According to the Spanish press, his departure for Real Sociedad in the form of a loan has already been completed.

Another player who should take the loose, Sergio Rico. Definitively recruited from FC Sville in the summer of 2020, the Spanish goalkeeper saw his leaders punch him in the back that he had not necessarily anticipated. While he put down his suitcases in order to be the lining of the titular porter, the Ibre passed in fourth position with the arrival of Gianluigi Donnarumma. Its sale, wishes, could bring in around 5 million euros, supports L’Equipe.

Diallo and Kehrer listen to him

Abdou Diallo is also one of the players who may be required to leave this winter, or even next June at the latest. Indeed, the defender, despite his versatility, is aware that he will have difficulty obtaining a regular starting role. In order to find continuity, the one who will fly to Cameroon to compete in the CAN is listening to offers while his management is waiting at least 25 million euros to release him.

25 million euros is also the expected price for Thilo Kehrer. The German, who also has the advantage of being versatile, finds himself in the same situation as Diallo. The difference is that he only has 18 months of contract left. A sale is therefore privileged in January for the former player of Schalke 04, who for the time being, has managed to keep his place in selection. But that could change if he does not play more, he who is targeting the World Cup in Qatar in less than a year.

The Kurzawa and Draxler anvils

For Layvin Kurzawa, a departure seems very complicated to envisage. Extended until June 2024 to everyone’s surprise, the left side intends to put concrete in Leonardo’s wheels. Considering himself vague, since he no longer plays, the French international is not ready to move, for personal reasons, despite an announced interest from Lazio. A case that could be a real dead weight for the sports director.

Julien Draxler finds himself in the same situation. Also prolonged against all expectations for three additional years, the German attacking midfielder does not really intend to give up his salary and his living environment in Paris. Despite his very clear decline in the hierarchy and the loss of his place in the selection, the 2014 world champion is adapting perfectly to his fate and will make no effort to move towards the exit.

The specific case of Icardi

There remains the case of Mauro Icardi. Purchased for 50 million euros, the Argentine striker keeps a good rating in Italy, where Juventus is monitoring his performance. Even if they are not against his departure for 30 million euros, the Parisian decision-makers are aware that he will have to be replaced while Kylian Mbapp is heading towards a free departure in six months. Its sale this winter could therefore push PSG to make a colossal double investment which is not yet the order of the day. Good luck Leonardo!
