Saturday, The Parisian announced the list of eleven players that the club ille-de-France considered undesirable. A simple reading of the latter gives an idea of the extent of the construction site.
A new story, real hopes

- Abdou Diallo
- Eric Junior Dina Ebimbe
- Julian Draxler
- Idrissa Gueye
- Ander Herrera
- Mauro Icardi
- Thilo Kehrer
- Layvin Kurzawa
- Leandro Paredes
- Danilo Pereira
- Georginio Wijnaldum
They can still play a role
Galtier: “If I accepted this position it’s because I’m capable of it”
Finally, there is also talk of the Wijnaldum case. The Dutchman was clearly one of the biggest failures of last season for his first season in Ligue 1. But it is enough to remember his performances with Liverpool to want to give him a second chance. Above all, there is the tactical aspect. In 2019, but not only, it was brilliant that he had occupied a number 10 spot in Ronald Koeman’s 3-4-1-2 in the national team. Effective captain in front of goal, Wijnaldum then made his great volume of play speak. In the capital, there is a lining place to occupy this position, behind Neymar or Messi.
Sportingly, there is no room for them anymore
Obviously, Paris needs to be degreased. We said above, at least two players between Danilo, Diallo and Kehrer have to leave the club, otherwise their playing time will be greatly reduced. And if you have to find a double for Achraf Hakimi on the right side after the departure of Colin Dagba, the French champion is more than well equipped on the left, with Nuno Mendes, Juan Bernat and Layvin Kurzawa.
Or, in order, the headline, substitute and poster. The old Monegasque, in fact, has almost no chance of finding playing time. The inconsistency of his contract extension in 2020 for four seasons – and in full Covid – has been stressed enough. Now it’s about fixing that bug.
The heartbroken Mandanda: “This is the first big risk that Longoria runs”
But the most obstructed sector is undoubtedly the middle of the field. In the future Galtier system, there will only be two starting points left for the profiles of numbers 6 or 8. And therefore too pretentious, not to mention that Renato Sanches could follow Vitinha in the direction of arrivals, even if the Portuguese can. evolve higher.
Idrissa Gueye, Ander Herrera and Eric Junior Dina-Ebimbe are clearly too much. Especially if Paris wants to give playing time to the promising Warren Zaire-Emery (16), brilliant during the coronation of the French under-17 team in the European Championship, or even to Ayman Kari (17), who has just signed the his first professional contract. .
There would be room, but …
There is, finally, a very specific category. That of players whose profile could be useful for PSG next season … but who are too expensive compared to their performance. Julian Draxler and Mauro Icardi, not to mention them.
The case of German has been problematic for several years. At 28 he reminds us from time to time that he is still capable of lightning. But his contribution has become almost nil. The attacking midfielder has only played fifty Ligue 1 games in the last three seasons and is still a year away with two goals and two assists in all competitions. His profile would make sense as a substitute in support of the two attackers. But his fitness is totally out of date with his 562,000 euros a month.
