During the remaining days of the summer transfer window, Paris Saint-Germain must actively strengthen their defense, especially with Milan Skriniar sidelined due to injury for an extended period.
PSG faces a challenge in securing January deals for Dayot Upamecano, Diego Llorente, Leny Yoro, Maxence Lacroix, and Jean-Clair Todibo due to the potential high prices or the players being untransferable. As a result, the French giants are actively seeking economically shrewd targets to strengthen their backline.
Foot Mercato reports that the Ligue 1 side has different files to fill the need for a center-back, and one of the targets is AS Roma’s Gianluca Mancini.
According to the outlet, the Parisians consider the Italian defender a safe bet, all-risk insurance in the short term, capable of thoroughly and quickly fulfilling a status in the rotation.
Confident and focused on other issues, PSG is procrastinating, and discussions have not started between the two managements, who have maintained good relations.
A sale this winter of Mancini, estimated at €25 million, would give breathing space to the club’s finances, which should begin a small transition with a new sporting director and a new coach next summer.
With over 200 matches played in Rome, Mancini is a leader with a strong character but, above all, accustomed to playing in a 4-man defense.
