Paris Saint-Germain sporting advisor Luis Campos overhauled the midfield last summer transfer window, bringing in four recruits. However, it’s been a bag of mixed results.
Campos will need to get back to the drawing board to find the right combination of players to have a strong unit. With a few months until the summer window opens, the loudest name PSG is linked to is Borussia Mönchengladbach midfielder Manu Koné.
Téléfoot (h/t Canal Supporters) reported on Sunday, citing sources, that the capital club is one of the teams hoping to land the 21-year-old, but the French media also adds that they’ll face tough competition for the player.
Bayern Munich, Chelsea and Manchester United are in the mix to land Koné, who’s under contract with the German club until 2025. Furthermore, when it comes to the price that these interested teams will need to pay, Téléfoot reveals that it will take a sum of up to €45 million for Mönchengladbach to part with the midfielder.
After the latest UEFA Champions League Round of 16 exit, pundits like Thierry Henry call for the capital club to insert more young French talents that identify with the club. It will be interesting to see if Campos is ready to battle top European clubs to land these talents.
