Lionel Messi will definitely leave Parc des Princes after the 2022/23 season ends. Not long ago, the Argentine superstar’s father made this public in front of the media, after he voluntarily left the team to Saudi Arabia to deal with personal matters. So what will the French capital team look like in the “post-Messi” period?
One thing is for sure, no matter what happens, Messi stays or goes, PSG still takes Kylian Mbappe as the main axis to revolve around, as obvious as the law of the Earth revolving around the Sun. Not so, the owners of the French capital team gave Mbappe many privileges and privileges, making his role like a sports director at Parc des Princes.
PSG is urgently rebuilding the squad in the “post-Messi” era, with the determination to return strongly in the 2023/24 season to aim at conquering the Champions League. They began to plan a massive “request forever”, in addition to an effort to liquidate contracts that are no longer suitable, including striker Neymar. Although not really clear, but at Parc des Princes, everyone understands that, this season, Neymar has always sided with Messi against Mbappe. PSG do not allow that to exist in the new season.
According to the latest news, PSG has negotiated with Bayern Munich defender Lucas Hernandez. Basically, the French international has agreed to join Parc des Princes, after a season of many dissatisfactions with the leadership of Germany’s most traditional team. The remaining problem is that PSG must convince Bayern Munich to nod. Again, Hernandez cost Bayern Munich a record transfer fee for a defender – 80 million euros.
Besides, PSG is also getting very close to another star. That is, Sporting Lisbon’s central midfielder Manuel Ugarte. It is known that the French capital team also initially successfully negotiated with Sporting Lisbon. The transfer fee of this deal will be 60 million euros, excluding incidental costs. According to Maxifoot newspaper, Ugarte will soon be in Paris to conduct a medical examination, before signing a five-year contract with the “rich man” of France.
A surprising name in PSG’s plans is Arsenal midfielder Martin Odegaard. However, this is only one-sided information from the British press yesterday. The French capital team has not yet made any comment. But if it is possible to bring Odegaard to the Parc des Princes, it will be a gift for any coach appointed to the position of PSG head coach next season. This season, Odegaard has been outstanding as Arsenal’s captain, and has scored many important goals.
But no matter how PSG shop, the position of driver at Parc des Princes is still important to take into account. Coach Christophe Galtier will certainly lose his seat after this season ends. The Paris team has targeted a few famous names, including coach Jose Mourinho or, most recently, Luis Enrique. However, it is not certain that PSG has been satisfied.
Coaches like Mourinho or Enrique have very strong personalities. They certainly won’t let themselves be in the same situation as their colleague Galtier – putting Mbappe above the coaches, even above the team. Therefore, once Mbappe continues to hold the position of sports director at Parc des Princes, the leader of the French capital team may need to find a coach who can accept this absurdity.
Remember, at PSG there is only one tactical scheme that has been, is and will continue to be operated. That is: “Mbappe + 10”.
