Paris Saint-Germain put 11 players up for sale
Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly prepared to sell as many as 11 senior players in this summer’s transfer window.
The Ligue 1 champions have already recouped around £7.75m from the sale of goalkeeper Alphonse Areola, who completed his permanent switch to West Ham United on Monday, following a loan spell with the club last season.
Following the appointment of Luis Campos as a football advisor and ahead of Christophe Galtier’s expected arrival as head coach at the Parc des Princes, L’Equipe, via Marca, reports that Ander Herrera, Mauro Icardi and Leandro Paredes are among 11 PSG players who have been placed on the transfer list.
The report adds that all three players have expressed their desire to stay, but the Parisian outfit are looking to offload the trio to balance their books as they are all on big-money contracts.
PSG are also willing to listen to offers for Sergio Rico, Marcin Bulka, Thilo Kehrer, Abdou Diallo, Idrissa Gueye and Arnaud Kalimuendo, the latter of whom has been linked with a move to Leeds United.
The long-term futures of midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum and star attacker Neymar are also believed to be uncertain, with PSG allegedly open to selling both players for the right price this summer.
A potential switch to the Premier League has been mooted for Neymar amid links with the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea and Newcastle United, while Juventus and Barcelona have also been credited with an interest in the 30-year-old.
