Facing the press on Thursday, Paris Saint-Germain coach Christophe Galtier confirmed the desired arrival of an additional striker for this summer transfer window. And at the same time, the Parisian coach was also clear about the situations of Keylor Navas and Mauro Icardi.
Christophe Galtier has been cleared for the transfer window.
As usual, Paris Saint-Germain coach Christophe Galtier did not dodge any questions during his visit to the press conference on Thursday.
And after the announcement last week of his wish to welcome three additional recruits at the end of this summer transfer window, the French technician clarified his expectations for a position: an attacker.
An attacker claims, but…
Indeed, with the upcoming departure of Arnaud Kalimuendo for Rennes during a transfer of 25 million euros, PSG is indeed active to secure the services of an additional scorer. Yes, we want the arrival of another striker. I repeat it once again, with a very busy schedule until November 13 and the World Cup, we want this to happen. The club works, normallyassured the PSG coach.
I am in direct contact on a with Luis Campos, who is himself in direct contact with the management and the president. You must not be mistaken, you must not do anything. There is what is feasible, what is not. Will this player arrive? We have no guarantee on a. The club will not take to pick and stack players. It has to be a real added value and the club is working in this direction. The club is working hard on this position, he admitted. In addition to a central defender (Milan Skriniar) and a midfielder (Fabian Ruiz), the reigning French champion therefore has a clear return sheet.
Navas and Icardi, clear situations
But to go on the offensive, Paris wants to slim down its workforce. Several players are thus likely to leave in the coming weeks. We think in particular of goalkeeper Keylor Navas, now number 2 behind Gianluigi Donnarumma and tracked by Naples. If Keylor agrees to be number 2? No and fortunately! He has such a career that it is very hard for him. Afterwards will Keylor leave or ask to leave? I know he has solicitations. In training, from what I see, he behaves like a very great professional and a very great competitor.said Galtier.
Among the undesirables, striker Mauro Icardi has just joined, since Wednesday, the loft from PSG with Julian Draxler, Ander Herrera, Layvin Kurzawa, Rafinha, Idrissa Gueye, Thilo Kehrer and Eric Dina-Ebimbe. And for the Argentinian, the former OGC Nice tactician was also very clear. I saw Mauro at the beginning of the week, the resumption, to specify to him that I was going to restrict the group because I do not want to work with 25 outfield players. Does he have any proposals? What are his wishes? I do not know. The club is working closely with Mauro to find the best possible solution. He’s had very little playing time in recent seasons and I think it’s important for him to get back on track. Does he aspire to a Champions League club or a championship very precisely? I do not know. But both in the interest of Mauro and that of the club, we must find the best possible compromise: a club where he can express his qualities, he finished. In Paris, the path to follow is all mapped out on this last straight line of the transfer window.
