Having completed the defensive position, with the arrivals of Milan Skriniar and Lucas Hernandez, Paris is now focused on strengthening his attack. To the point of completely abandoning the idea of a new recruit at the heart of the game? This is the trend today.
Going into the summer transfer window in Paris, it’s all about attacking. Behind the scenes, the Paris administration is now giving priority to the file of Randall Kolo Mwani. Negotiations are continuing between the capital club and Frankfurt. Another file that could move quickly: the Bradley Barkula file. And according to what was revealed by RMC Sport, the Parisian club made an initial offer of more than 30 million euros for the 20-year-old, but Lyon rejected it. During the discussions, an amount of 50 million euros was put forward by OL. There is a haze surrounding the exact amount Leon is willing to give up his wing. But competition is fierce with Chelsea also interested in the striker.
Kolo Mwani and Barcola, two figures agreed today in the offensive sector. Conversely, no name has appeared to promote the Parisian midfielder. Eight days before the transfer window closes, it seems that Paris Saint-Germain is finally no longer determined to recruit in this sector. It is a trend that seems to have been further confirmed after the failure of the case of Bernardo Silva, who just extended with Manchester City. Paris made the Portuguese creative environment its priority, but the main stakeholder ultimately rejected this approach. The English club also quickly closed the door. Discussions continue with Brahim Sangare (PSV), a more athletic midfielder, but much less intense.
Financial Fair Play slows down the transfer window in Paris
There is another element associated with these “coolings” at the heart of the Parisian game, which is that financial fair play remains an obstacle to the Paris Saint-Germain transfer window at the present time. It remains to be seen that Luis Enrique can do without access to this sector of play while the futures of Marco Verratti and Gini Wijnaldum are still up in the air. Leandro Paredes and Renato Sanchez left for Rome. The only consolation prize is a good start to the season for rookie Manuel Ugarte, the former Sporting player. But will that be enough to calm the Parisian attacks led by Ousmane Dembele or Kylian Mbappe? It is difficult to ascertain this moment.
