After the defeat in the Champions League semi-finals at the hands of Manchester City by a cumulative score of 3-1 and with three dates to go until the end of Ligue 1, President Nasser Al-Khelaifi and his right-hand man, Sporting Director Leonardo , they began to plan the following season of the PSG thinking again in reaching the glory in Europe.

In the midst of the uncertainty in the environment due to the delay in the renewal of Neymar's contract, and the rumors about the possible departure of Kylian Mbappé, the leadership would also be thinking of making cash with some footballers to combat the financial crisis that it produced the coronavirus. According to the French newspaper Le Parisien, the losses would reach 300 million euros and to combat this millionaire figure the best remedy would be to purify part of the staff and reduce the wage bill.

The one who heads the list, as detailed by the French half, would be the Argentine striker Mauro Icardi, who signed a contract in June 2020 after PSG paid 50 million euros for his purchase of the recent Serie A champion, Inter from Milan. The former Sampdoria was already playing on loan in Paris since 2019.

With an agreement that binds him to the French entity until 2024, the 28-year-old footballer would be the most profitable player they would put on the market, since they will ask for a sum close to 65 million euros. Along with him, the Spanish attacker Pablo Sarabia is also outlined on the exit ramp, who came to the club in exchange for 20 million euros in 2019.

The former Sevilla also does not count in Mauricio Pochettino's plans and could be a good entry of money together with the young German defender Thilo Kehrer who they bought for 18 million euros in 2018, from Schalke 04, and today it reaches a market value of 25, according to the specialized website Transfermarkt.

PSG will also sell three other players

These three players could also be joined by Rafinha, Florenzi and Bakker, who would not be essential for the Argentine coach either. The Spanish-Brazilian did well in Ligue 1 when he had to replace Neymar due to injury but from the leadership they believe they would get a good cut if they put him on the market.

In turn, the managers would not be willing to continue counting on the Italian full-back for the following season. The player came on loan from AS Roma and, despite having a purchase option, the Parisians would not make use of it and he would return to Italy to be under the command of new coach José Mourinho. Finally, the 20-year-old Dutchman, who came free from Ajax, would not enter into Pochettino's plans either, who would opt to give Diallo ownership in that sector of the court.
