Before Paris Saint-Germain – Monaco (L1, Day 4): Parc des Princes awaits Renato Sanchez (Paris Saint-Germain)

He’s been there for less than a month, but Renato Sanchez has already gone down in PSG history. It ran in 26 seconds. Entering the match two weeks ago against Montpellier (5-2), the rising Parisian scored his first goal in his new colors after just one minute and 33 seconds, receiving a cross from Nuno Mendes. He would have become the fastest player to open his account for the capital club had Jay-Jay Okocha not performed better with his legendary goal against Bordeaux in August 1998, scoring after 1 minute and 7 seconds after not being his first in a Parisian shirt.

Guardiola on Bernardo Silva: We have not received any calls from any club

Nevertheless, the Portuguese managed to achieve an amazing surprise in front of his new fans in the Princes’ Garden. In this same turf, the rising player who came from Lille this summer, for 15 million euros, is likely to experience his first tenure with Paris Saint-Germain. Christophe Galtier should already make up for Vetignia’s absence in midfield to welcome Monaco on Sunday (9pm). Thus, the Parisian coach has the possibility of aligning Renato Sanchez from the start of the match and linking him with Marco Verratti in the midfield hub.

Galtier has three options

Galtier was careful not to reveal his plans. Or rather, he did not hesitate to recall that he had no shortage of options to replace the former FC Porto player, who has done particularly well alongside Verratti since the start of the season. The only sure thing is that the PSG coach will have to rely on a player with a different profile than Vitinha’s. “I have three optionsHe said at a press conference on Friday. Renato (Sanchez) but also Danilo (Pereira) or Leandro (Paredes). I’ll make my pick tomorrow (Saturday, editor’s note) even if I already have an idea.”

PSG has not finished the transfer window: “The players are waiting to join us”

Paredes has usually been the favorite to make up for Vitinha’s absence. The Argentine also systematically entered the game in place of the Portuguese during the first three league matches. But he is on his way to a move to Juventus Turin and that could prompt Galtier to look for another option. Danilo had also replaced Vitina in the second half during the Champions Cup, and the Portuguese, who must remain at the club after being declared among the undesirables, can also play in the defensive trio. And so he had replaced Sergio Ramos last week at Lille.

Precautions and condensation

Danilo’s choice makes sense, but Renato Sanches seems to be sticking with the streak. Galtier increases his playing time little by little. After about ten minutes against Montpellier, the Portuguese midfielder played the last half hour of the match in Lille. But the Parisian coach wants to be careful. “His transportation was long so his preparation was a bit sluggishHe said on Friday. He did not play the preparation matches and his workload was less than the rest of the matches. When there is a long period about the possibility of joining a big club like PSG, it creates pressure so we have to be careful in the first weeks.

Paris Saint-Germain too easy? ‘Ex-players’ syndrome is the only underlying danger’

The approach has also been legitimized by the history of Renato Sanchez’s injuries. But the Portuguese are gaining momentum and Galtaire has noticed. “It seems to me relaxed and well integrated, here he found some citizens in the workforce and employeesThe Parisian coach explained. His posts during the match gave me satisfaction. With regard to his so-called weakness or weakness which is the sequence of matches, his muscular “fragility”, from the moment Renato feels confident and relaxed, I am convinced that he will reduce the risk of injury.”

Make way for Verratti Renato duo?

This confidence, Galtier has the opportunity to develop by offering Renato Sanchez his first spell with Paris Saint-Germain. This is crucial because the match against Monaco marks the start of a mini-marathon for the Parisian club with seven meetings in the space of 21 days, including two Champions League matches and a shock against Lyon. Aligning the Portuguese in the beginning to give him as much playing time as possible is above all the best way to allow him to hack his mechanism when Paris is about to get to the heart of the matter.

Especially with Verratti. The two players have yet to have the chance to play together since the Portuguese replaced the Italian against Montpellier and then against Lille. Renato Sanchez already has the profile of seducing the audience in the Parc des Princes, and he is always fond of this kind of “impressive” player, capable of amazing rides and confusing dribbling. Even more in a duet with a Parisian idol like Verratti. Especially since the amazing debut of the Portuguese novice two weeks ago.
