One of the richest clubs in the world now, big-spenders Paris Saint-Germain could be at it again this summer as they look to continue their quest to build a truly world class squad to compete with the very best in Europe.
With big names such as Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Edinson Cavani arriving in recent years, PSG have managed to win two Ligue 1 titles in a row, and they will now hope to make strides in the Champions League after being knocked out at the quarter-final stages for two years running.
Plenty of exciting additions have inevitably been linked with PSG this summer, while the £50m signing of David Luiz from Chelsea has already been made, for better or for worse. More players from Stamford Bridge are expected to follow, and here’s an idea of what Laurent Blanc could select as his first XI next season if he lands all the players being linked with the club.
Goalkeeper and defence:
Petr Cech – Despite being a key player for Chelsea for the last ten years, the return from a successful three-year loan spell of Thibaut Courtois could mean Cech is on his way this summer, with PSG said to be among his main suitors as they eye a world class signing in goal.
Dani Alves – Linked strongly as one of many players to be leaving Barcelona this summer, there have been rumours on and off that the Brazilian right-back could make his way to PSG as one of their many new big-name targets in defence.
Marcelo – Another La Liga star with Champions League-winning experience, Alves’ Brazilian team-mate Marcelo has also been linked with a move from Real Madrid to PSG this summer, though it remains to be seen if this key player will be allowed to leave the Bernabeu.
Thiago Silva – One of the best defenders in the world, Silva has been linked with a host of big names over the years, though he remains a big player and inspirational captain of this PSG side, and looks set to lead them out again next season.
David Luiz – Partnering Silva in defence will be former Chelsea man David Luiz, who arrives for £50m on the back of a highly disappointing World Cup campaign. Will this all-Brazilian back four leak as many goals as it did against Germany and Holland in the final two games of a competition that these players will want to forget fast?
