Paris Saint-Germain has a new project that will attempt to bring the top French talent, especially from within the city. The capital club brought Lucas Hernandez, Ousmane Dembélé, and Randal Kolo Muani this past summer.
The change in transfer policy has some Parisians having to answer whether they’d consider returning to their hometown club. Liverpool’s Ibrahima Konaté is the latest player being asked whether he is pondering heading home as a native of Paris.
While Konaté loves his hometown, it seems as though he has his sights on being in Liverpool long-term.
“It’s true I’m Parisian… but now I’m in Liverpool,” Konaté told reporters.
🗣️Journo: “There are a lot of French national team players who have moved to or play for PSG. Are the Parisians doing a little lobbying [for Konate to join PSG]?”

The 24-year-old has a contract with the Premier League club until 2026. However, could the French club come calling in the future?
Well, PSG hasn’t been shy of using the free agency market to improve their squad. It will be interesting to see if Konaté decides to stay abroad or head to his hometown sometime in his career.
