PSG ‘to sell four players in January’ as they bid to comply with financial fair play

By Isoccer Staff


Paris Saint-Germain have reportedly identified four players they want to sell during the winter transfer window in a bid to comply with financial fair play.

The Ligue 1 side spent €200million (£178million) on Neymar over the summer and will have to shell out a similar amount to make Kylian Mbappe’s loan deal permanent next summer.

PSG have the funds to pay for Mbappe but need to balance their books to avoid being hit with UEFA sanctions.

The club’s sporting director Antero Henrique has, according to Sport, picked out the following four players as surplus to requirements…


Hatem Ben Arfa

The former Newcastle and Hull man signed on a free transfer from Nice in the summer of 2016 but has failed to establish himself.

The 30-year-old made 30 appearances last season, with 22 of those coming from the bench and PSG are keen to offload him.


Angel Di Maria

The Argentine winger cost PSG £44million just two years ago and already they are trying to move him on.

With Mbappe and Neymar starting out wide, Di Maria’s only opportunities will come with the others picking up injuries.

He is not yet 30 years old and could command a considerable fee.


Javier Pastore

One of the longer-serving PSG players, Pastore has been at the club since 2011 and was one of their original big name signings after they came into money.

This season, though, he has been limited to just eight appearances for them and is free to leave for the right offer.


Lucas Moura

Moura was thought to be on his way to Manchester United in 213 before PSG swapped in to hijack the deal late on.

The 25-year-old has never quite lived up to his billing, however, and is likely to leave in 2018.
