Lucas came to Paris from Brazil last winter for a huge transfer fee and has quickly become one of the team’s most important offensive players. PSG has no plans to get rid of him after just six months.
After a disastrous autumn it looked like Pastore would leave PSG. It is also rumored that both Milan and Juventus are keeping a close eye on the Argentine. But after playing up in the spring, especially in the Champions League, PSG probably do not want to sell this summer. Pastore says he no longer thinks of moving and the mood in Paris is getting better all the time.
The rumors of a return to Serie A picked up again when the Gazzetta dello Sport published photos on Lavezzi in a restaurant in Milan this weekend. From Italian places it is said that the article was a put-up job from the restaurant owner, but that does not stop Lavezzi is a renowned agreed in Italy and himself has said that he would think twice about Milan got in touch. PSG will probably first secure a replacement before it releases the Argentine, who is also drawn with a salary so high that Italian clubs get very hard to match.
The team’s goalkeeper has no plans to leave the club this summer. The Italian Sirigu has settled down well in his new homeland, already speaks the language fluently, has a French girlfriend and often repeat how good he thrives in Paris.
The French national’s progress this season has attracted the interest of teams like Inter, but Matuidi do not want to leave the project as he seen emerge in recent seasons yet. However PSG probably need to improve Blaise Matuidi’s contract to avoid other foreign big clubs to start to get in touch with Matuidi
Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s teammate thrive in PSG and Paris and the alleged interest from Juventus is most likely just that his agent, Mino Raiola is trying to get a better contract for Maxwell at PSG.
Turkish Fenerbahce have shown interest in Alex, but Alex is expected to remain at the club next year. There have not been any further rumors in regards to Alex.
The team’s defense star was forced to say no to Barcelona last summer because he “already given PSG’s words,” but if Barcelona would make a new bid in the summer Silva find it difficult to say no again. Even Milan, as well as other major European clubs, follows Silva carefully.
The PSG captain has spent parts of the season on the bench as new signing Gregory van der Wiel has taken his place. This makes it likely for Jallet to leave PSG in the summer. However no club has so far expressed a big interest in signing Christophe Jallet.
The team’s playmaker has previously said that he sees himself in Serie A in the future, but said as recently as last week that he himself wants to stay at PSG. Juventus and Milan have been linked with the young Italian, but will not be able to match an offer from Real Madrid, or a new improved contract from PSG, in economic terms.
In the last few weeks there have been a lot of rumors on possible signings for PSG this summer. Here is a summary of who might join Zlatan Ibrahimovic in Paris Saint-Germain this summer.
Edinson Cavani, Napoli
Mentioned recently in media to be ready for PSG next season, something sporting director Leonardo denies. In Italian newspapers people are talking about a change between the clubs where Cavani goes in one direction and Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the other, but a change directly between the clubs is something that might be hard to do.
Radamel Falcao, Atletico Madrid
Mentioned as a possible replacement for Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the summer, but Falcao is able to pick and choose between the big European clubs and any direct contact with PSG has not been established yet. If Falcao would choose PSG over other European clubs it would be a big surprise.
Cristiano Ronaldo, Real Madrid
Signing Cristiano Ronaldo would be a dream for the Paris Saint-Germain, which came to life after Ronaldo himself last winter, did not rule out that he would play in PSG next season. But that Ronaldo would like to replace the mighty Bernabeu stadium in Madrid against unglamorous away games against Rennes does not seem very likely. A signing of Cristiano Ronaldo would however put the French league in a totally different position and it would attract a lot of new fans. Signing Cristiano Ronaldo would also open up for a lot of other possible signings for PSG.
Jose Mourinho, Real Madrid
Will most likely not remain in the Madrid after the summer and is the most likely candidate if PSG would be looking for an replacement for Carlo Ancelotti. But the question is whether or not the French Ligue 1 is too anonymous for Jose Mourinho. Mourinho likes to stay in the spotlight and recent years only been training top clubs in Europe’s most prestigious leagues. The Qatari leadership has also made a point that they want peace and working atmosphere around their coach, something that was never likely to be the case in the club where Mourinho settles down. Signing Jose Mourinho would also be a big opener for additional possible signings for PSG.
Arsène Wenger, Arsenal
Has a contract with Arsenal that extends for another year, but Wenger was during the spring mentioned as a possible replacement for Ancelotti. The fact that Wenger would be heading back to France after nearly twenty years in England may seem logical, but many people believe that Wenger is not a big enough name to succeed in attracting future big players to PSG.
The possible transfer targets for PSG are mainly high profile names and the rumors will continue to come in during the next few months. PSG has the money and the ambition to do something really big and that might attract some really big names like Cristiano Ronaldo and Jose Mourinho. Another name that have also been mentioned is Wayne Rooney but right now we do not see that transfer as very likely. We will follow up with the latest transfer rumors as they unfold and give you all the possible signings for PSG this summer as they pop up.
