PSG have often been criticized for a form of vagueness surrounding the sports sector. What is the game plan? What is the main idea? These questions reached heights with Mauricio Pochettino on the bench and Leonardo as sporting director, the first failing to inspire much to anyone, the second being more interested in the transfer window than in the game plan By choosing Luis Campos, the Qatari management decided on the spot, since the Portuguese is able to breathe a real vision on the tactical level in collaboration with the coach.
On this subject, as we have explained to you, Campos’ priority was quickly Christophe Galtier. For several reasons: he knows him for having already worked with him, they get along very well, and the ideas of each are implemented. For Campos, choosing Galtier means choosing a coach who will materialize the clear guidelines of the summer transfer window. In the spirit of the new Paris Saint-Germain football adviser, the team will play in 3-5-2. We therefore need reinforcements in defense, with mainly the Milan Skriniar track which is progressing well. Other files are worked in parallel, including one that leads to a versatile defender.
Reinforcement in attack
We also need better control in the midfield, in order to support Marco Verratti. The announced arrival of Vitinha goes in this direction, and Campos also hopes to complete that of Renato Sanches. He also wants to bring new blood in attack, because Mbappé would feel very alone there. Mauro Icardi is clearly pushed towards the exit and is not part of the project built by the new strongman of PSG. Hence the Robert Lewandowski track which is currently being worked on. And the will to quickly finalize the file Gianluca Scamacca (23 years old). In addition to these two targeted players, Paris retains the luxury of attracting a double to Kylian Mbappé.
There is still a lot of work to be done on the transfer window, but the guideline is known, the speech clear. In this 3-5-2 where Lionel Messi could be installed in number 10, there will obviously not be room for everyone. The undesirables are known (Icardi, Draxler, Kehrer, Kurzawa, Herrera, Danilo, Wijnaldum), and it will be necessary to question in this system of play the role reserved for Neymar, for which Qatar has opened the door to a departure. This will be another major project for Campos.
