PSG MARKET – Skriniar, Ekitike, Scamacca … Paris, from “Dream bigger” to “Dream smarter”?

Just a year ago, Paris did not bother with any nuances in their transfer period. The best goalkeeper in the European Championship, Gianluigi Donnaruma, the best defender, Sergio Ramos, and the best striker, Lionel Messi, landed to assert the power of a club willing to do anything to crush the competition. But the plan did not work. Paris is still planted in the Champions League, and this time the umpteenth humiliation pushed the skippers to revise their copy. Gone are the splendor and big names that make your head spin. PSG have made a radical change in their approach to the season.

First example, arguably the most effective, the arrival of Christophe Galtier whose record in the Champions League is limited to 0 wins, one draw and five defeats. The former Nice coach embodies both a return to more rationality and discipline at a Camp des Loges too often left to the whims of his stars. From now on things are clear: eleven players will be dismissed and deprived of a tour in Japan. Eleven undesirables, located on the transfer list, reminiscent of the lofts formed by Christophe Galtier in Saint-Etienne or Luis Campos in Lille. One way to whistle the end of the break even though splitting the squad does not guarantee more success in finding landing points for Kurzawa, Wijnaldum, Icardi and other Draxlers.

What would PSG’s defense give Skriniar?

“New talent”, “new markets”

Galtier, the anti-bling, preferred Zinedine Zidane, but the absolute fantasy of Qatar: it is not a small revolution in which Paris is engaged this summer. Led by a duet finally united at the head of the athlete (Luis Campos-Christophe Galtier), Paris should continue to follow this line. It is enough to look at the goals of the champions of France to be convinced that it is entering a new sequence in its history. Again, no more glitter and Golden Globes.

We need to find players who are proud to be in Paris, for the club, for football and just for football.“sums up in Le Parisien Nasser Al-Khelaïfi, in search of”new talent“i”new markets“Today’s goals meet the specifications. Milan Skriniar had already spent a few seasons on the shelves of PSG, who never reached the end of this track. Preferring him, for example, last summer a Sergio Ramos in the end of the race Hugo Ekitike, who has never seemed so close to Paris, embodies the fierce intention of reconnecting with Ligue 1 recruits.

Since Mbappé, Paris has no longer hired L1

For 4 years and the arrival of Kylian Mbappé, PSG has never caught any player in the French league although it has watered the European market with great talent (Eduardo Camavinga, Victor Osimhen, Wesley Fofana, Ferland Mendy, Fabinho, Bernardo Silva …). The increasingly likely arrival of the 20-year-old striker from Reims is also an opportunity to return to Paris young players with some potential and a lot of room for improvement, such as Vitinha (22), the first recruit of the Campos era . . Paris has too often signed in recent years satisfied and convinced stars for the wrong reasons to continue his career in the capital. Last popular file, Gianluca Scamacca is also a favorite subject of Luis Campos. Instead of piling on the names, the new PSG sports adviser is looking for complementarity and knows very well that Paris lacks a great surface striker.

After the biggest dream, Paris seems to have moved on to the smartest dream, although the real obstacles hinder this deep revision. After two weeks in the transfer market, PSG are still loaded with their balls and the new faces have not yet shown that they would do better than their predecessors in sales. The recruits announced, if they do not have the brilliance of those who make up the Parisian staff today and if they do not have the same gold contracts, will also be very expensive. Ekitike, Skriniar and Scamacca could be worth, among them three, about 140 million euros while for Vitinha, Paris has already taken more than 40. The project, perhaps more rational but not more reasonable, has changed. But the fundamentals remain the same: the pharaonic means of QSI without which nothing would be possible.
