Sport PSG beaten by… Fulham?
PSG's league campaign in trouble after rocky start to season
PARIS (AP) — Having been within touching distance of the European crown it so craves, and invested so much money to achieve, Paris Saint-Germain's league title defense is in danger of slipping off the rails. Only weeks ago PSG stood 90 minutes away from joining Marseille as the only French club to win the Champions League. But PSG lost 1-0 to Bayern Munich, and the club has been in freefall since as problems have piled up amid a lack of authority and poor discipline.
Looking for more reinforcements at the end of the transfer window, Leonardo sees one of his defensive tracks fly away. While is now Chelsea captain, are still waiting to welcome a new central defender to accompany Marquinhos, Presnel Kimpembe and liners Thilo Kehrer and Abdou Diallo. Leonardo, the sporting director of PSG, has been trying to recruit a top-level defender for several weeks and it will probably not be , who was one of his main targets at the start of the "summer" transfer window. Tottenham and Fulham raise the stakes Inter Milan are not ready to let go of their 25-year-old Slovakian international that easily and PSG have never seemed to come close to the € 50million claimed by the Lombard leaders. In the meantime, Tottenham have entered the race with a bid of € 35m and Premier League-promoted Fulham are said to be ready to match the asking price, as reported by the Daily Mail. The bidding will go up and PSG will no longer have a say in Skriniar. As a reminder, Leonardo has to deal with a rather limited envelope as he tries to bring in a central defender, a central midfielder and an attacking player in these final days of the transfer window. The French champion has so far spent 57 million euros for Mauro Icardi, Sergio Rico and Alessandro Florenzi, but by cashing only 5 small millions (only Loïc Mbe Soh has been sold, Thomas Meunier, Thiago Silva, Eric-Maxim Choupo-Moting and Edinson Cavani having left free). Who will come on loan? PSG, which will not be able to spend around fifty million euros for so many recruits, is therefore trying to be loaned players "referenced" but unwanted in their club. Thomas Tuchel would welcome the arrival of his compatriot , PSG would negotiate with Chelsea for the loan of and would stay on the lookout for Dele Alli, a disappointing English international who is more indispensable in Tottenham. It will be necessary to complete everything before the evening of October 5.
