Paris Saint Germain still cannot complete their dream of winning the Champions League after losing 0-1 result to Bayern Munich in the final round of season 2019/20. So what will Paris Saint Germain’s next plan be?
PREDICTION THE FUTURE OF PSG
Paris Saint Germain experienced the best season in history when winning the 4 domestic cups (Ligue 1, French Cup, French League Cup and French Super Cup) and reached the Champions League final for the first time in history. The 1.2 billion euro project has not yet reached the first destination, but it is likely that PSG’s team will not have many big changes. Especially when they had to start the new season this Saturday, on Lens field.
After the match, President Nasser Al-Khelaifi believed that this was not the last time Paris Saint Germain reached the Champions League final. “We are very sad and we have done a lot of great things this season. PSG can score two or three goals in the final”, Al-Khelaifi told RMC Sport. “We are proud of our players. PSG has had a great season, the players have done everything towards glory, but football always has a grim. PSG will show its face. better next year. I promise PSG will win the Champions League.”
Coach Thomas Tuchel is likely to be retained after the first record of bringing PSG into the Champions League final. Previously, the sporting director Leonardo had an intention to fire him due to his frivolous performance.
THE LUCKY STAR IN PSG – Paris Saint Germain
The brightest stars like Neymar and Kylian Mbappe will still stay, at least until the end of the 2020/21 season. Neymar will be the soul in the play of the Paris team after he shows a remarkable maturity in play and spirit during Paris Saint Germain‘s journey to the Champions League final. However, it is impossible to say anything about Neymar. He can sulk and demand to leave at any time. And no one is sure that the Brazilian will keep stability next season.
As for Mbappe, he insisted that he would stay at Paris Saint Germain in the 2020/21 season when he said: “I will continue to work for the team no matter what. I will be at PSG for the fourth year”. But the fact is that he has yet to renew the old contract that will end in 2022. In addition to keeping top stars like Neymar and Mbappe, the current framework will not change much. These are Keylor Navas, Marquinhos, Angel Di María, Marco Verratti, Presnel Kimpembe, Idrissa Gueye, Leandro Paredes or Mauro Icardi. There are also Ander Herrera, Juan Bernat or Pablo Sarabia.
But Paris Saint Germain will also break up quite a lot of people. The first are two legendary Edinson Cavani and captain Thiago Silva. Right-back Thomas Meunier has joined Dortmund while striker Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting is also out of contract after this season. PSG are looking for a centre-back, a right-back and possibly a midfielder to replace those who left.
And the only blockbuster they could explode was when Lionel Messi announced his departure from Barca. In that case, despite the lofty salary that Neymar and Mbappe are receiving, Paris Saint Germain is also ready to open a wallet to seduce the Argentinian superstar. Even coach Thomas Tuchel recently opened up: “Messi will be welcome at PSG. But I think he will end his career at Barca”.
If there is the service of Messi, PSG’s dream of conquering the Champions League throne will have a chance to come true sooner. But the cost to spend will increase a lot compared to 1.2 billion euros.
