Messi leaves, Neymar on the market and a new DT, this summer PSG

ESPN sources have revealed that the biggest transfer targets this summer will be younger players.

Where do we begin? We have come to another summer and another decisive decision for Paris Saint-Germain. Of course, this is not new: it happens in almost every bad season and the 2022-23 campaign is no exception, the journey is difficult and sometimes on the pitch.

The Champions League slipped out of the club again, bad training hurt the squad again, and although on the brink of another Ligue 1 title, PSG has to change. Not only do they need to be developed, but they need to be pointed in the right direction.

So how can homeowners clean up the mess? It’s going to be a lot of fun.

What fans want more than anything else is to see their own team next season. Not only do the 11 individuals on the pitch try to find each other or improvise: but, the team itself with the patterns of the game, the style of football, new ideas and unpredictable moves, with triangles, passing intelligence and structure. Almost none of these in recent years, or at least not consistently enough.

With Christophe Galtier or Mauricio Pochettino, the two most recent coaches of PSG, the players complained that they did not work hard enough on the technical skills of the machine. Having great stars like Lionel Messi, Neymar or Kylian Mbappé is only one element of a successful team; It doesn’t mean that your team just gives them the ball and they win for themselves.

Since PSG play a three-man defense, it is often difficult to find a back in space, and as a result, they rarely go around games to distract opposing defenses. They have suffered nine defeats in 26 games in all competitions in 2023, one loss in every three games, due to the lack of fighting teams (Lyon, Monaco and Lyon), which could not be pressed enough (Bayern Munich and Rennes) or overcome. rival pressure (Massile, Lens, Rennes and Bayern Munich again). It has a change: PSG could press and respond against an aggressive team, while also having a clear idea of ​​how to move the ball correctly.

To become a proper team, this team will need the right coach and the two are strongly linked. After years of poor educational institutions, PSG chose well this time.

Galtier (from 2022) was never enough, and the former manager of Insular and Saint-Etienne left this summer in a one-year contract. Mauricio Pochettino (January 2021 to July 2022) had to commit too much to succeed properly. The rot goes further: Thomas Tuchel (August 2018 to December 2020) resolved his toxic relationship with former sporting director Leonardo and was released under the pretext of drinking with someone else. Unai Emery (August 2016 to May 2018) was always a bad choice. Laurent Blanc (August 2013 to May 2016) was never tough enough.

At this time, whoever comes to the bench must be a good fit: someone with a real identity and philosophy, but also with the right level of accommodation to develop the team. They also need a strong personality with an arc like Paris Paris: to make an impression, the expectations of the fans and the owners of the Qatari club, not to mention the politics within the club.

It is possible that this trainer does not exist in the market this summer, but the candidate will be selected as close as possible to the previous profile. If Nasser Al-Khelaifi and the great candidates Thiago Motta, Luis Enrique, José Mourinho, Antonio Conte, Luciano Spalletti, Zinedine Zidane or Julian Nagelsmann, nothing matters so much. Among the Latins this is the best to choose.

For the players, it is convenient to decorate it, the casino needs more. Luis Campos, PSG’s sporting director, and the owner of the club should be the first man to be in charge and then give the players he needs. But in general, what the club wants to do in the summer.

Editorial Picks

  • It is now clear that PSG It ends up being the only superstar to sign on the track. This summer, Lionel Messi will leave after two seasons in which he did not meet expectations; He worked so hard in his time in Paris, of course, winning many national trophies on the pitch and developing the PSG brand around the world, but that’s not how you win the League.

    ESPN sources have revealed that most of the transfer targets this summer will be young players, mostly French and ideally, if possible, Paris. Midfielders Manu Koné (Borussia Mönchengladbach) and Kephren Thuram (Nice), forward Randall Kolo Muani (Eintracht Frankfurt), Moussa Diaby (Bayer Leverkusen), midfielder Rayan Cherki (Lyon) and defender Evan N’Dicka (Frankfurt) are all on the list. They are welcome, of course, such as Bernardo Silva (Manchester City), who is interested in joining, and Victor Osimhen (Napoli) or Harry Kane (Tottenham), who will be more difficult to sign considering the interest in both.

    Messi is about to leave and Neymar also wants to leave the club, which makes Campos a big summer. Until now, probably because of his closeness to Mbappé, the director of the game has been quite immune from criticism. Once the buy and sell window opens; otherwise the second part of the restoration, in January, will take place without her.
