The preseason for Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) has revealed some shortcomings in the squad and the need to strengthen itself to face the challenges of next season. The team led by Luis Enrique has not achieved the expected results, and the recent defeat against Cerezo Osaka has highlighted the urgent need to continue signing in order to have a competitive squad.
The main concern for the French club is the possible departure of Kylian Mbappé. Faced with this possibility, the sports management has activated different tracks to ensure an adequate replacement. One of the names that has sounded strong is that of Ousmane Dembélé, Barcelona winger. Luis Enrique has validated this signing, recognizing the skills of the world champion player in 2018, and his ability to unbalance from the right wing. The arrival of Dembélé would mean a significant reinforcement for the Asturian coach’s tactical scheme, who is looking for a 4-3-3 with Neymar on the left and a center forward, possibly Harry Kane, to serve as a reference.
All favorites, pick another place
However, the search for the ideal striker has not been easy, as Bayern Munich appear to be the favorites to sign Kane’s services. In addition, PSG have also set their sights on Rasmus Hojlund, a 20-year-old Danish striker, but Manchester United have ended up ‘stealing’ his signing from them.
Regarding departures, Verratti has decided to go to Al Hilal, which represents a significant loss for Luis Enrique’s scheme. The Italian midfielder was seen as an ideal player to adapt to the Spanish coach’s style of play, and his departure leaves a void that must be filled with the addition of guarantees.
Luis Enrique wants quality reinforcements
Time is pressing, with the start of the season just around the corner, PSG has the mission of closing its signings and reinforcing the squad to live up to expectations. The fans expect a competitive team that can fight for the three titles at stake, and both the president Al Khelaïfi and the sports director Luis Campos work tirelessly to meet Luis Enrique’s demands.
