A 2018 world champion targeted

Paris Saint-Germain’s off-season will not only be active in the attacking sector, with the probable departure of Argentine striker Lionel Messi and a possible sale of Brazilian star Neymar. In the direction of arrivals, the names of Bernardo Silva (Manchester City), Victor Osimhen (Naples) and Randal Kolo Muani (Eintracht Frankfurt) come back in particular insistently.

The capital club’s summer also promises to be hectic with a view to remodeling its defensive sector. In the radius of possible arrivals to this position, Paris is working on the files leading to Milan Skriniar, at the end of the contract at Inter Milan, and Lucas Hernandez, linked until June 2024 with Bayern Munich. As explained by us, the leader of Ligue 1 and probable champion of France 2023 would have reached an agreement in principle with the 2018 world champion.

Under contract until 2025
