Back in March, there was a report linking Paris Saint-Germain goalkeeper Marcin Bulka to Real Betis in a possible loan deal. Fast forward to May, and Les Parisiens could potentially lend out Garissone Innocent for the 2020-21 season, too.
RMC Sport journalist, Loïc Tanzi, tweeted out that the 20-year-old is heading out on loan this summer with “several Ligue 2 clubs and two foreign clubs are already in contact.”

It’s in PSG’s best interest to loan out both Bulka and Innocent for the upcoming season to get a look at how they can handle playing starter minutes.
The Poland international keeper is under contract until 2021, so an extension needs to occur before a loan happens. Meanwhile, the France international’s term expires in 2023.
Furthermore, with the capital club’s sporting director, Leonardo, looking for a backup to Keylor Navas, it’s clear that there won’t be much playing time for both young keepers. Also, playing as a backup won’t help in their development.
At 33-years-old Navas can command the net for a couple more seasons in Paris, but if either Innocent or Bulka can take the next step in their development, then there’s an in-house replacement ready to take the reigns.
