More than 48 hours from the end of the transfer window, Christophe Galtier returned to the Skriniar, Paredes, Navas and Ruiz files at a press conference before Toulouse / PSG and confirms movement in the coming days.
Exceptionally, this season the transfer window will end on September 1 at 11 p.m., so there are just over 48 hours left for PSG to sign new recruits or find an exit door for certain players. In the direction of arrivals, Fabian Ruiz or Milan Skriniar are always mentioned next to the name of the Parisian club while in the direction of departures, Keylor Navas and Leandro Paredes are announced close to other clubs, Napoli and Juventus in the occurrence. In a press conference before Toulouse / PSG, Christophe Galtier gave an update on these four files.
The Skriniar track is not dead
In recent days, the echoes of the Italian and French press have reported nothing good for PSG concerning Milan Skriniar. Determined not to offer the 70 or 80 million euros demanded by Inter Milan for the Slovak whose contract in Lombardy ends at the end of the season, the Parisian leaders face an interist management determined to keep and extend the 27-year-old.
“Skriniar has been a target player for a long time, negotiations with Inter are very difficult”
Faced with the complexity of the case, Christophe Galtier first pretended to dodge the subject at a press conference. ” Thank you goodbye “he started laughing, before keeping the door open when the Slovak arrived:” I can’t tell you it’s completely over. The transfer window is exciting because there are always surprises. Skriniar has been a targeted player for a long time, negotiations with Inter are very difficult and their position must be respected. But there are 48 hours left before the closing, everything is possible “.
The exit is getting closer for Paredes
Despite being called up for the reception of AS Monaco on Sunday evening, Leandro Paredes did not leave the bench during the meeting. Christophe Galtier’s number one choice to bring new blood into the Parisian midfield during the match since the start of the season, the Argentinian has this time seen Danilo Pereira be preferred to him. If many took this as a sign of his departure, the 29-year-old midfielder is moving away from the capital despite the missing agreement between PSG and Juventus.
“Leandro is currently a PSG player but his mind is elsewhere”
At a press conference, Christophe Galtier explained that he had not called Leandro Paredes for the trip to Toulouse in order to anticipate his possible departure: “ Leandro will not be part of the group to be transparent. After training, I spoke with him, he found an agreement with Juventus, which we will meet soon. He is currently a PSG player but his mind is elsewhere. There is no agreement between the two clubs. I made the decision not to put him in the group so that he prepares his departure and that there is not a player in the group who may leave the club 24 hours later. “.
Blur around Keylor Navas
Unlike Leandro Paredes, the Costa Rican goalkeeper will be part of the trip to Toulouse this Wednesday. The triple winner of the Champions League has been announced close to Naples lately but his terms of departure from the capital block everything. If he claims compensation from PSG to leave the club, the Rouge et Bleu sports management is not prepared to pay it to him and release his number two goalkeeper.
Facing the media, Christophe Galtier did not want to dwell on the subject and did not raise the possibility of a departure from Keylor Navas as he did previously with Leandro Paredes. ” For Navas, we exchange very often. He is now a PSG player under contract and will be in the squad for Toulouse Slipped the French technician without quoting Napoli and without going into details.
Fabian Ruiz will (normally) be Parisian
In the direction of arrivals, Fabian Ruiz is the hottest track on the PSG side. Luis Campos has been working on the file for several weeks now and the Spaniard’s arrival seems closer than ever. ” There is certain information coming out about the arrival of certain players. You have the information of Fabian Ruiz very close to PSG. We had targeted him for a long time, it is under discussion, nothing is official, for the moment, he is a Napoli player launched Christophe Galtier.
A little embarrassed in front of the journalists, the Parisian technician continued after a short moment of laughter: “ And yes, we have seen in the history of football almost acquired signatures which are ultimately not made for X reason. It’s not an implication about him but it’s the reality “. Barring a last-minute turnaround, Fabian Ruiz will therefore be a PSG player.
