Paris Saint-Germain decided this past summer to make changes to their transfer policy. The capital club steered away from the big-name players, allowing Lionel Messi to leave as a free agent and selling Neymar to Al-Hilal this past summer.
Furthermore, the Ligue 1 side ironed out their relationship with Kylian Mbappé, who appeared to be on the way out. As a result, former PSG midfielder Ander Herrera says building around one superstar should be the ideal strategy for the Parisians.
“I like the team the way they built it,” Herrera said recently on Colinterview. “I think they are doing well with Luis Enrique. Having just one star, Kylian, is good. The team plays for him. We will see with time, but I like the team.”
Messi moved on to Inter Miami as a free agent. However, the 36-year-old recently returned to Paris, where he won his eighth Ballon d’Or.
Meanwhile, Neymar went outside Europe to continue his career but suffered a torn ACL and meniscus during Brazil’s 2-0 loss to Uruguay in World Cup qualifying last month.
PSG also said goodbye to players like Marco Verratti, now in Qatar, and Sergio Ramos, who left as a free agent to sign with Sevilla FC. The French giants are looking for a fit over a name. It will be interesting to see if this decision works out.
