PSG: a radical decision falls for five players

The return to the Camp des Loges from Paris Saint-Germain, his internship in Japan over, allowed Christophe Galtier to make a new strong decision on his group. The Parisian coach did without the services of five players for the morning session.


Christophe Galtier wants to reduce his workforce. While Portuguese midfielder Danilo Pereira should continue the adventure, the new Paris Saint-Germain coach took advantage of his group’s return to Camp des Loges this Wednesday morning to bang his fist on the table. For the resumption of training within the facilities of the capital club, now focused on its first meeting of the 2022-2023 season, the Champions Trophy against FC Nantes next Sunday, the successor on the bench of the Argentinian Mauricio Pochettino has decided to do without the services of five players.

The same absent as in Japan

According to information from the newspaper The Team, five members of the 2022 French champion’s squad were not invited to train alongside Kylian Mbappé’s teammates. Absent on Asian soil, Layvin Kurzawa, Julian Draxler, Georginio Wijnaldum, Ander Herrera and Rafinha did not participate in the recovery at Camp des Loges. The message is clear and confirms the trend: the French defender, the German attacking midfielder, the Dutch midfielder, the Spanish midfielder and the Brazilian midfielder must leave the club and find a base before the end of the summer transfer window. The sports daily specifies that the quinté was integrated into a training group during a session organized this afternoon.

For now, five players have already packed their bags: Alphonse Areola (West Ham United), Marcin Bulka (Nice), Angel Di Maria (Juventus Turin, free), Xavi Simons (PSV Eindhoven) and Colin Dagba (Strasbourg, loan ). In the direction of arrivals, Paris Saint-Germain enlisted the Portuguese midfielder from FC Porto Vitinha, the French striker from Stade de Reims Hugo Ekitike and the tricolor defender from RB Leipzig Nordi Mukiele.
