PSG Talking Podcast: International Break Paris Saint-Germain Update

The players are away on international duty, so that gives us plenty of time to overanalyze the latest Paris Saint-Germain news making headlines.

On this episode of PSG Talking, I break down the latest news, including a significant injury to one of PSG’s best-attacking players, comments from Kylian Mbappé about his future, and a transfer boost to one of the best young center-backs in Europe.

Jonathan Johnson from CBS Sports also joins the show to discuss his thoughts on PSG’s quarter-final tie against FC Barcelona in the Champions League and some of the latest transfer news.

I start with the unfortunate injury news of Bradley Barcola, who went down with a hamstring injury while representing France U23 in a friendly against the Ivory Coast. It’s estimated the young Frenchman could be sidelined for 10 days and could potentially miss the clash against Barcelona. I discuss who could replace him in the starting lineup over the next couple of weeks.

Next, I discuss Mbappé’s comments about his future, where he essentially said there is no news and nothing to announce. With his ongoing tug-of-war with Real Madrid regarding his desire to play in the Olympics in Paris this summer and the club’s stance that they will not release him, could this open the door for PSG to try and convince him to stay?

Leny Yoro is one of the most highly sought-after talents in Europe, but with Real Madrid continuing negotiations with Mbappé and FC Bayern Munich’s Alphonso Davies, PSG may be in the lead to sign the Lille OSC defender. I talk about PSG’s need for a defender like Yoro and why he needs to be the first signing of the summer.

I wrap up my portion of the podcast with a preview of PSG’s upcoming fixture against Olympique de Marseille. I discuss the importance of a solid performance in front of a hostile crowd and how that will benefit PSG as they prepare to travel to the Camp Nou later this season with a chance to advance to the semi-finals of the Champions League on the line.

The show concludes with Jonathan Johnson sharing his thoughts on potential PSG transfer targets, Luis Díaz and Johan Bakayoko. He also gives his opinion if would be a mistake to allow Gonçalo Ramos to leave the club and if Achraf Hakimi may also leave to Real Madrid. He also gives his thoughts on the tie against Barcelona and if Ousmane Dembélé will play with a chip on his shoulder against his former club.
