Paris Saint-Germain were linked to Bayern Munich defender Matthijs de Ligt this January window, but the rumor didn’t result in any serious transfer. Nonetheless, the 24-year-old nixed any potential talk about moving to the French capital.
According to L’Équipe, de Ligt rejected the chance to join PSG, and the Parisinas made a great effort to sign the Dutch international. The Ligue 1 side attempted to sign a center-back, which lasted the entire transfer window.
After successfully acquiring Lucas Beraldo in early January, Les Parisiens was compelled to search for an additional defender due to Milan Skriniar’s injury, which could potentially end his season.
Various profiles were assessed, ranging from Leeds United’s Diego Llorente to Lille OSC’s Leny Yoro. Priority still lies with the latter, and PSG is highly likely to resume negotiations in the summer.
Nevertheless, no agreement was reached on a central defender, leaving the French giants to continue with their current squad for the remainder of the 2023-24 season.
