There’s only a handful of matches left in the season, but at Paris Saint-Germain, major changes are on the horizon.
On this episode of PSG Talking, I’m joined by Ethan from PSG Fan Club Boise to discuss PSG’s two-game win streak, the Ultras’ treatment of Lionel Messi, transfer rumors, and so much more.
Up first, we share our main takeaways from PSG’s 5-0 win over AC Ajaccio at the Parc des Princes, and the 3-1 win away at ES Troyes AC. Has Achraf Hakimi proven that he is expendable after two red cards late in the season? Is Fabián Ruiz…good? Are the PSG Ultras in the right for whistling at Messi every time he touches the ball?
We switch gears and focus on the latest transfer rumors. PSV’s Ibrahim Sangaré is reportedly close to joining PSG, but would his arrival mean the departure of Marco Verratti? Who else would PSG need to sign to fill the void left by the Italy international? Neymar reportedly wants out of Paris, and the club is willing to sell, but which club could realistically sign him this summer?
With so many incoming and outgoing transfers, PSG’s financial situation will be scrutinized. Ethan breaks down the financial health of the club and what the future could look like in terms of transfers.

2011-19 PSG was a profitable football club that didn't have the highest expenses in the world, and was a great product on the pitch
2020-23 PSG is a club that's lost millions, has the highest wage bill in the world, and is not a great on-field product

We wrap up the show by discussing how Ligue 1 could gain popularity in the United States and why in an alternate universe, PSG and not Inter Milan would be in the UEFA Champions League final.
