PSG: speed, technical finesse, potential… is Bradley Barcola really worth 45 million euros?

Things happen quickly in football. Really quickly. And, although it will be discussed later, we are not talking here about the speed of the ball at the feet of Bradley Barcola. Who could have imagined at the start of the year that this striker, who will celebrate his 21st birthday this Saturday, would be recruited for 45 million euros excluding bonuses by Paris Saint-Germain? In mid-January, at the end of the first leg of the last championship, he did not show any start with OL in 2022-2023 and was even very close to being loaned… to Switzerland!

Nicknamed “the grasshopper” in his younger years because of his slender physique (1m86, 68 kg), Bradley Barcola ended up getting his chance at OL thanks to the catastrophic departure of Karl Toko-Ekambi in Rennes, loaned during the last transfer window of January. Lacking an experienced solution, Laurent Blanc had decided to launch a boy who had not really caught his eye since his arrival, three months earlier.
