No less than seven players belonging to PSG, at the end of the contract, are preparing to go free from the capital’s club.
It’s now a certainty: at the end of the contract, Thiago Silva and Edinson Cavani, two emblematic figures of PSG, will no longer be Parisians next season. Long questioned in the columns of the JSunday newspaper, Leonardo has indeed acted on their departure. “We come to the end“, Said the Parisian sports director, adding:”It was a very difficult decision to make, these are players who have marked the history of the club: we always wonder whether we should continue a long way together or whether it is better to avoid the year of too much. The stories were so beautiful. But you had to make a logical decision, even economically or with regard to the coming generation. ”
Two departures that mark the end of an era and to which must be added those of Thomas Miller, Layvin Kurzawa and Eric Choupo-Moting, also at the end of the contract and which will not be kept. “The idea is also to stop there, but we need to discuss the next two months. We will try to keep the whole group for the Champions League “, added the Brazilian leader. But these five players are not the only ones heading towards the exit. The same is true of young people Tanguy Kouassi and Adil Aouchiche, whose trainee contracts end at the end of the month, and who seem determined to leave their training club to sign their first professional contract.
So many players who could have paid big in the event of transfers. While the value of Thomas Meunier alone is estimated at 24 million euros by the specialized site Transfermarkt, it is a total of 82 million euros that PSG could have recovered by selling these seven elements on the transfer market.
