CaughtOffside takes a look at the players potentially moving on from Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint Germain this summer.
Paris Saint Germain are well on the way to establishing themselves as one of Europe’s leading clubs after winning Ligue 1 at a canter from nearest rivals AS Monaco last season, but the ambitious Parisian club will be keen to strengthen once again this summer after they were disappointingly beaten in the Champions League quarter finals by Chelsea.
This will mean that some players are surplus to requirements in Laurent Blanc’s squad – a selection of players crammed full of quality after some heavy recruitment since the club were taken over by wealthy investors.
Premier League teams have already been linked with exciting moves for some of PSG’s biggest stars, so CaughtOffside decided to take a look at the players who could be available from France’s leading club this summer.
Signed for a huge fee from Serie club AS Roma just twelve months ago, 20 year-old Brazilian centre back Marquinhos is already being linked with a move away from PSG to the bright lights of Barcelona.
If the Catalan club are to lure one of the world’s finest young defenders away from Paris then they will have to pay a heavy price, but it is a deal that could go through as it is hard to see Marquinhos nailing down a consistent first team place ahead of fellow countrymen David Luiz and Thiago Silva.
