Paris Saint-Germain has undergone a lot of change this past summer transfer window. Gone are Lionel Messi and Neymar Jr.; meanwhile, new arrivals include Ousmane Dembélé and Randal Kolo Muani.
Even though the capital club did splurge the cash this summer to overhaul its squad, L’Equipe reports that PSG displays a turnover more significant than €800 million for the 2022-23 season (a first in its history).
Furthermore, the wages that have come off the books with several players leaving, like Messi, Neymar, and Sergio Ramos, have done well for PSG’s economic health. Then there’s the sales of Neymar, the pending transfer of Marco Verratti, and other undesirable players that have done the finance book well.

It will be interesting to see if PSG becomes more conservative with their spending in the coming transfer window. Perhaps a midfielder that brings height and skill. OGC Nice’s Khéphren Thuram would be the only significant addition the French giants could look to make down the road.
Nonetheless, it seems the Ligue 1 side is being operated healthily from a sporting and economic perspective.
