Report: PSG Interested in Juventus Defender as a Possible Bernat Replacement

Paris Saint-Germain was already having a hectic summer transfer window, and its plans were once again spurned on Wednesday. PSG left-back Juan Bernat recently suffered a serious ACL injury in his left knee and is now set to miss months of action.

PSG had no plans to reinforce the left-back position before Bernat’s injury, but it is now eyeing one Serie A talent as a possible replacement for the Spanish talent.

PSG is reopening its interest in Juventus full-back Mattia De Sciglio, according to a report from Sky Sport‘s Gianluca Di Marzio. The report mentions that De Sciglio is not part of Juventus’ plans for the upcoming season. Thus, Juventus is open to offloading the full-back.

AS Roma was one side that recently showed an interest in acquiring De Sciglio, but no deal ever materialized between the two Serie A clubs.

This is not the first time that PSG has been linked with De Sciglio. The report adds that PSG and Juventus had discussed a swap move between De Sciglio and Layvin Kurzawa during the winter transfer window earlier this year.

For the moment, PSG manager Thomas Tuchel will likely pick Mitchel Bakker to be the team’s new starting left-back.
