Facing the press on Thursday, Paris Saint-Germain coach Christophe Galtier confirmed the desired arrival of an additional striker in the summer transfer window. Meanwhile, the Parisian coach was also clear about the positions of Keylor Navas and Mauro Icardi.
Christophe Galtier has been approved to enter the transfer window.
As usual, PSG coach Christophe Galtier did not evade any questions during his appearance at Thursday’s press conference.
And after announcing last week that he wanted to welcome three more recruits at the end of this summer transfer window, the Frenchman made clear his expectations for a position: striker.
One of the attackers claims, but…
Indeed, with the upcoming departure of Arnaud Kalimuendo to Rennes during a €25 million transfer deal, PSG is already active to secure the services of an additional scorer. Yes, we want another striker to arrive. I repeat that again, with a very busy schedule until November 13 and the World Cup, we want this to happen. The club is operating normallyThe Paris Saint-Germain coach reassured.
I am in direct contact with Luis Campos, who himself is in direct contact with the management and the president. You must not be mistaken, do nothing. There is what is possible, and what is not. Will this player arrive? We do not have a guarantee on a. The club will not accept player selection and stacking. It should be a real added value and the club is working in that direction. The club is working hard on this position, He confessed. In addition to centre-back (Milan Skriniar) and midfielder (Fabien Ruiz), the French champions have a clear comeback card.
Navas and Icardi, clear positions
But to go on the offensive, Paris wants to reduce its workforce. So many players are likely to leave in the coming weeks. We think in particular of goalkeeper Keylor Navas, now No. 2 behind Gianluigi Donnarumma and followed by Napoli. If Keylor agreed to be No. 2? Fortunately not! He has a very difficult career on him. After that will Keylor leave or will he ask to leave? I know he has temptations. In training, from my point of view, he behaves like a great professional and a very great competitor.Galtier said.
Among the undesirables, striker Mauro Icardi has since Wednesday joined the the attic From Paris Saint-Germain with Julian Draxler, Ander Herrera, Levin Kurzawa, Rafinha, Idrissa Gui, Thilo Kehrer and Eric Dina Ibembe. And for the Argentine, the previous OGC Nice tactic was pretty straightforward. I saw Mauro at the start of the week, the appeal, to tell him I’m going to limit the group because I don’t want to work with 25 players off the field. Does he have any suggestions? What are his desires? I do not know him. 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 the Champions League or a championship very precisely? I do not know. But for the sake of Mauro and that of the club, we must find the best possible middle ground: a club where he can express his qualities, is over. In Paris, the path to follow was decided on that last straight line of the transfer window.
