Paris Saint-Germain sporting advisor Luis Campos has his hands full this upcoming summer transfer window as he attempts to build a well-balanced squad with depth that can compete in the UEFA Champions League.
Le Parisien (h/t Paris Fans) took stock of the futures of several players who may or may not be exiting the capital club once the 2022-23 season concludes.
Regarding the futures of Fabian Ruiz, Vitinha, Renato Sanches and Nordi Mukiele, the four players have not finished writing their history in Paris, so it appears they’ll remain. In addition, Hugo Ekitike is also planning to stay with PSG for next season.
However, it s less clear for Juan Bernat. FC Valencia could position itself to land the veteran if they remain in La Liga, as the Spanish club is currently in a relegation battle. It is also being determined whether Carlos Soler will still be Parisian in a few months.
In the case of Lionel Messi, a first meeting has already been held between Campos and the player’s agent and father, Jorge, to start discussions around the terms of a new contract.
But at what cost? The recent elimination from the Champions League could impact the timing of the next dialogues. As for Sergio Ramos, it is difficult to say he’ll return, which shouldn’t be surprising considering his age. Operated this Friday in Doha, Neymar wants to stay, although PSG keeps the door open to a departure.
