Report: Leonardo Doesn’t Plan on Adding a Left-Back

The depth at left-back is quickly becoming thin for Paris Saint-Germain. Juan Bernat is out due to an ACL injury, which will keep him out six months, and Layvin Kurzawa received a six-game suspension. 

Mitchel Bakker is occupying the spot for the capital club, but Bernat out for a significant time, and Kurzawa’s suspension and injuries in his past. Many supporters will think that PSG sporting director, Leonardo, will look to reinforce the left-back position. 

However, Le Parisien reports that the 51-year-old isn’t looking to address the position at the moment, despite having someone like Lucas Hernandez possibly interested in heading to Paris. Kylian Mbappé did praise the PSG project to his national team teammate. 

With the coronavirus pandemic affecting many club’s abilities to spend in the transfer market, a left-back probably isn’t in the budget unless a favorable loan comes across their way. If this is the case, then Les Parisiens will count on Bakker and Kurzawa for most of this season.
