Luis Campos dreams of an explosive transfer window at PSG but the reality could be very different because the Portuguese sports coordinator will have to deal with the constraints imposed by UEFA in the context of financial fair play.
Financial fair play is not just a memory for Nasser Al-Khelaïfi and for the Emir of Qatar. Barring a big surprise, Paris Saint-Germain will again face UEFA in the next transfer window due to their colossal financial losses in recent months. Despite the departure of Lionel Messi and the possible upcoming transfer of Neymar, which meant two big less salaries at PSG, the capital club will not be free to do what they want.
It will be necessary to sell with a vengeance, in particular the undesirables with large salaries (Paredes, Kurzawa, Draxler, Icardi) before being able to excite the football planet with recruits such as Kolo-Muani, Osimhen or even Dembélé and Kane. According to journalist Jonathan Johnson, who spoke about it in his column on CaughtOffside, PSG could also be forced to sell a player with high market value to replenish its coffers and buy peace from UEFA. .
Hakimi sacrificed to avoid UEFA sanction?
One name stands out: that of Achraf Hakimi, who is with Kylian Mbappé the most highly rated player on the transfer market. “From a purely sporting point of view, it is clear that he is not the player that PSG would seek to sell in priority. But in Paris, there are not so many players who have a high market value. Hakimi could bring big money, especially in the event of a transfer to the Premier League. There is Donnarumma who keeps a good market value but he is not coming out of a big season and should not be the subject of a big offer. estimated the journalist before continuing and concluding on the future of the Moroccan defender.
“If a serious offer arrives at PSG for Hakimi, it is clear that Paris will think. PSG need to replenish their coffers because the threat of financial fair play is real” concluded the British journalist. Suffice to say that Nasser Al-Khelaïfi is on his guard against a financial fair play that he finally thought harmless and totally behind him. UEFA could finally catch up with him by the collar because of the very significant financial losses of the capital club in recent years, in particular because of the enormous salaries distributed to Neymar or even to Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappé, who receives remember- the 6 million euros gross per month.
