Former Players PSG Should Consider Bringing Back

Everyone knows that Ligue 1 is the league of talents and Paris, in particular, is as rich in football talent as any city in the world.

Paris Saint-Germain has taken advantage of its location and used Paris-born players to win dozens of trophies over the past decade. This season, Paris-born Kylian Mbappé and Randal Kolo Muani have led PSG to the semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League, where they’ll take on Borussia Dortmund. Casinos on the Nieuwe-Casinos website have the odds on that tie and much more, but odds are PSG will continue to invest in its young talent to build a strong foundation instead of splurging on aging superstars.

However, could PSG spend big on former players who have left the club and found success elsewhere? It may not be a bad idea as many Parisians and French-born players have a special bond with the capital club.

Adrien Rabiot is one player PSG could consider resigning. His contract at Juventus FC expires at the end of the season, meaning PSG wouldn’t have to pay a transfer fee for the midfielder’s services but may have to convince him over Manchester United. His exit in 2019 was somewhat tumultuous, but at 29 years old, you would hope he would have matured and those issues wouldn’t be as damaging. For PSG, Rabiot would bring stature and experience to the midfield, which PSG could desperately use.

Christopher Nkunku is another player PSG should inquire about. The Chelsea FC player came up through the PSG academy but only barely made an impact with the first team. Nkunku has experienced some injury issues, and considering Chelsea will miss the Champions League next season, Nkunku may want to return home and be part of an exciting PSG project.

Kingsley Coman has won everything with FC Bayern Munich, including scoring the winning goal against PSG in the Champions League final in 2020. He also came up through the PSG academy and may be open to a return to his hometown club. He plays on the wing and could help replace the goalscoring void left by Mbappé when he leaves for Real Madrid this summer.

Lastly, Moussa Diaby is another player who left too soon and is finding success in the Premier League. Aston Villa, his current club, should finish in a European place this season, but at PSG, he could bolster an attack that could be one of the best in Europe should he return. His contract runs until 2028, so his transfer fee would be significant, but he is a player from Paris who came up through the academy. Given PSG’s accomplishments this season, Diaby could be the player to put PSG over the top and finally bring a Champions League trophy to Paris.
