With Lionel Messi and Neymar, PSG is sufficiently armed and could do without a successor to Kylian Mbappé during the next summer transfer window if we are to believe the Italian transfer journalist Gianluca Di Marzio.

“What could make me stay at PSG? We are far from it, since I wanted to leave this summer. I'm not going to be hypocritical and come and throw a bottle in the sea, like, “Oh, I don't know. “”. In an interview with L’Equipe at the beginning of October, Kylian Mbappé announced the color for his future. Eager to join Real Madrid during the last summer transfer window, the French international is not closing the door to a departure at the end of the season, once his contract with PSG has expired. Although Leonardo still hopes to extend his lease, the case seems to be off to a bad start. The Parisian sporting director may therefore have no choice but to seek his replacement in the market. As announced by exclusively from August 25, the priority of PSG is called Erling Haaland . The Borussia Dortmund playercould leave his club for just € 75m in the summer of 2022, and the capital club do not want to let the chance slip by. The names of Robert Lewandowski (Bayern Munich), Victor Osimhen (Napoli), Dusan Vlahovic (Fiorentina) or even Mohamed Salah (Liverpool) are also mentioned. But PSG could well do without an attacker and focus on other tracks.

“PSG has Messi and Neymar, that's enough”

Asked specifically about the track Mohamed Salah, Gianluca Di Marzio indicated that PSG could make the decision to recruit a midfielder and a central defender, rather than a striker capable of succeeding Kylian Mbappé. “PSG have Messi and Neymar. With Mbappe, there are too many of them now. I don't think so, because Salah is a similar player to Neymar. It does not have the same characteristics as Mbappé. PSG makes players look like characters. They don't think about logical tactics. They need defenders and midfielders. They don't need another attacker. The most difficult situation for the coach is to find a team, ”said the Italian transfer journalist in an interview with Wettfreunde.

For Salah, it's over

But could PSG take the decision to renounce the succession of Mbappé ? No one knows for sure, but some players are unlikely to join the ranks of Mauricio Pochettino . As indicated by Gianluca Di Marzio, Mohamed Salah , for example, would have a good chance of extending his contract with Liverpool : “I think he will sign a new contract with Liverpool. No other club can afford it. No other club needs this position. Barcelona have no money. I think Real Madrid will get Mbappe. PSG have Neymar and Messi. In Italy, no one. He will determine his future if he wants to stay there (at Liverpool) and continue his fine scoring performance at Liverpool. He will sign, otherwise there will be problems for the club if he wants to leave ”. Especially since the Egyptian striker has expressed the wish to end his career in the Premier League. “If I see myself playing elsewhere to accomplish my goals and build my legacy?” At the moment, I don't see myself playing against Liverpool. It would make me sad. It's difficult, I don't want to talk about it but at the moment I don't see myself playing against Liverpool. But we'll see what happens in the future, “admitted Salah in an interview with Sky Sports. For Erling Haaland , the mission promises to be delicate for PSG because of the strong competition in this file. Leonardo nevertheless hopes to take advantage of his good relations with his agent, Mino Raiola , to complete this transfer.
